This a smallish museum, but it has a lot of great stuff in it. I had a student ID so I didn't have to worry about paying. They have a really good greek/roman section.

This small museum has lots to see. Rooms with paintings, sculptures, artifacts, and sports memoribilia. My 16-year-old son like it. Shocker! We also had a demonstration by one of the artists (smoke art). Very cool technique.

Many times went to Tampa and this one was the most amazing experience after we walk around-river walk- It was one of the kind enjoyment! Amazing art and antiques pieces from 1,000 years BC! Do not miss the opportunity to learn and enjoy art!

A very nice building, light en fine structured rooms. Collection of modern art is average but the Greek collection is outstanding. The exhibition of the paintings of Mernet Larsen, Getting Mesured, is great. A lot of fine works, Lissinsky- influence but also classic .

Quite disappointed by my visit at this Museum. The building itself is really beautiful, however, the exhibits are very limited and eclectic. A maximum of 30-45 min is sufficient to see it all. I would generally not recommend this Museum, however, there so little to...More
