The elegance of the ornate architecture and works of art are absolute eye candy. The history is worth listening to and celebrating. I hated to leave the building and wished I could step back in time to such a grandiose period. Henry B. Plant was quite a visionary.

This is a very nice, very small museum. Every room is packed full of interesting things to learn about. I rushed through it thinking that there was more to it. In retrospect, it would have been better to have read and listened to everything they had to offer. It is a great value and well worth your time.

From Our Editors

After becoming a success in the railroad and steamship industries, 1800s businessman Henry B. Plant set his sights on a new venture: building a luxury hotel near Florida's cerulean shores. His vision landed him in an area that was but swampland and sand in 1889 Tampa. But two years and $3,000,000 later—including $500,000 in furniture and art—he successfully opened The Tampa Bay Hotel, a 511-room luxury destination sprawled over six acres.

Today, Henry's architectural and engineering feat serves as the home of the Henry B. Plant Museum, an institution that educates visitors on Plant's life, the Victorian period, and life in early Tampa. Among the building's groundbreaking aspects, the hotel was among the first in Florida to feature electrified rooms and pampered guests with in-house billiards, a babershop, and a telegraph office. His guests even enjoyed in-room telephones and some rooms included private baths with hot and cold running water, a lofty accomplishment considering man wouldn't invent soap for another 13 years. The museum has now been restored to its former glory, showering current visitors in Victorian opulence, art, and its historic achievements.
