    At first, the thought of a museum for photographic art staggered my imagination. Why haven't I heard of this before? Well, it took people in Tampa a long time to establish the Florida Museum of Photog...  more »

    Very poor selection for the money i have paid to go in here. The museum itself is just sad. Yes the things inside are very nice but there isn't much. Not worth the price. Staff was nice though but seriously who ever owns this museum needs to lower there prices by alot. If im going to pay away my pocket i expect to have a mind blowing experience with loads of exibits inside. Not worth the money but if your rich you probably wouldnt care.

    I've experienced FMoPA as a student (taking a photography seminar), and visitor, enjoying exhibits. It's a must-visit destination for Florida residence, and those visiting from out of town. A Tampa gem!

    Their permanent selection is small but they have great exhibits that come into town. They also have some great community events for local photographers.

    I was so excited to visit the so called "Museum of Photographic Arts" because I was hoping to see and learn a little bit more about Photographic Arts! As a lover of photography I was very disappointed with my visit. The poor selection and display of the images was rather sad. The Photographs were basically hung in three short hallways which they had a nerve to call a "Museum of Photographic Arts" and charge an entry fee! Save yourselves time and money and take your family to a real museum! As for photographs, you can see better photos on Flickr.

    Cool photography museum. Free on last Friday of every month. Museum is supposed to be free but "donations" are demanded. Not really worth the $10 donation as it is very short but it is bigger than the Tampa museum of art by Curtis Hixon Park. They filmed the punisher and Edward scissor hands here!
