Nice building and good, solid exhibits on Tampa Bay history including displays on Native Americans; the cigar, cattle and citrus industries; and Tampa's sports teams and contributions to the war efforts throughout American history. There is a nice audiovisual presentation about the Native Americans and their interactions with the Europeans/Americans. There can be large school groups visiting at times, but they seem to stay with the docents and "regular" visitors can manuever around the groups easily. A Columbia Cafe shares the building and offers good food and a sunny spot to have lunch. An adjacent park offers kids a place to play if they need to run around after demonstrating good museum behavior.
