    Great museum. Their is a two for one coupon currently available on CL DEALS Tampa. I will definitely be back once the exhibit changes. Can't wait for the Star Wars Costume exhibit in November. Definitely worth a visit...and revisit. Enjoy!

    Really liked it. They have a $5 special on the entrance fee on Thursdays after 5pm. Really wonderful exhibitions, have an area for little ones to play. Friendly staff, beautiful location.

    Lame and boring. Not a good museum despite the reviews. If your have been to the worlds best museums this is a joke.
