It's a cool place to get out of the heat and examine the current exhibit being showcased.

The set up is nice and the building architecture is pretty interesting. It also happens to be the location shoot of the Punisher, so you get a bit of Hollywood with your visit. There is usually not a huge collection but out can be interesting. Just make sure you check what theme/artist they are exhibiting.

Have only four rooms with no more of 12 photos. Need more diversity. They suggested $10 donation. You seen the museum in 20 minutes.

The museum was house in a huge beautiful 4 story cube building. But the collection could fit in a two bedrooms. There was two exhibits, one was snapshots submitted by guest, with no theme. The other was of one artist who mounted this images on great big sheets of metal. Presentation was great, but the content was casual snapshots of his family, something grandma with no training would of done. I also agree with another review, I have much better photographs in my collection. I am so glad I didn't pay the donation fee in the front.

No entry fee - suggested donations. Small photographic museum with good Tampa area historical photos and a meaningful Holocoust survivor exhibit. A worthwhile diversion.

What a waste of time. I have a better collection in my studio. This was a big disappointment.
You will see a better collection at the Ringling museum
