Small area and I would have figured it would include a tour of some of the building. Flagler College tour in St. Augustine was much better.

Not very large but a lot of Tampa history bundled into a very interesting space. The historic building that you see along the treeline vista from various vantage points through downtown Tampa shares space with the University of Tampa so you will see college students sitting on the porch enjoying the beautiful weather that the fall offers here (that's when we visited). You will get a set of head phones that allows you to punch in the number of the exhibit that you are interested in and then you hear all about the items. Please start your tour with the movie. We really enjoyed our visit. The only thing I wish was available was maybe a little snack shop close by - there could have been one on campus but if one was available right there in the Student Union building that would have been perfect (open during the hours that the museum is open).

It would rate much better if the tour was Docent led. Otherwise there is too much to take in as a self guided tour

This was a wonderful day at this museum. What amazing history we have and this hotel shows you alot of it. The pieces they had preserved were amazing. .May i suggest if you go to do the audio tour and bring earbuds to listen . This is a must do..

Very interesting. I learned a lot on this self-guided tour. Now I know where the name of Plant City came from! I enjoyed learning about Henry Plant and of his railroad background. He certainly left a footprint on Florida. I would've like to have someone speak during the tour; we did not listen to the self-guided tape.

Thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Highly recommend to anyone staying in the Tampa area. It's a wonderful opportunity to see what FL was like in the late 19th c. Allow at least 2-3 hrs to take in all the furnishings & exhibits.
