  • Located in the "cube" adjacent to Rivergate Towers (the round building) is the location site. It's worth the stop, if you might be facing some inclement weather and want to occupy some spare time. I would categorize this museum as "filler time", in other words, it would not be what draws me to area but would supplement my experience. If you are looking for a large collection of photographs with plenty of variety , this is NOT the place. Entry fee is average to high. The interior floor space is well designed with plenty of natural light entering the structure. They have a permanent exhibit and also periodic rotating exhibits so definitely check their website to see if the current featured exhibit is something intriguing.
  • I love this Museum. Excellent curators, perfect size for a drop-in experience. So happy to have a museum dedicated to photographic arts.
  • The museum is a small but terrific venue for displaying photography as art. It apparently did not satisfy others but I would defy them to find ten photographs in an exhibit within 500 miles of Tampa to equal the brilliance of the photos of the great Iranian photographer Gohar Dashti that are currently on exhibit here. Tampa is blessed to have this opportunity. Congratulations on a fantastic exhibit.
  • I wanted to like it! I appreciate the value our museums bring to the city. This museum is plagued by its extremely small venue and lack of descriptions on pieces and art movements. With less than 2 dozen pieces at any time you aren't left with a good impression of an artists or art history and their impact on it. Instead it feels more like seeing blown up National Geographic pictures. I think the passion for art is there, and Tampa has the desire for a photographic art museum. Perhaps in a larger space with emphasis on photographic art history, education, and creativity the museum could really flourish.
  • Seems like a waste of time. Exhibits are small and there is little information about what you are seeing. It seems more like a small gallery than a museum. $20 for us to get in was steep for what we saw. It is a spectacular building but the facility and staff are significantly lacking.The Tampa Museum of Art right across the park was so much better. Very disappointed. Will not be back.
