About Henry B. Plant Museum
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 be completely electrified and pampered guests with in-house billiards, a barbershop, and a telegraph office. His guests even enjoyed in-room telephones and some rooms included private baths with hot and cold running water. The museum has now been restored to its former glory, showering current visitors in Victorian opulence, art, and its historic achievements.
