Quite disappointed by my visit at this Museum. The building itself is really beautiful, however, the exhibits are very limited and eclectic. A maximum of 30-45 min is sufficient to see it all. I would generally not recommend this Museum, however, there so little to...More

We went to the museum to see the photo realism exhibit. My husband, who is more familiar with the genre was disappointed. It was very educational for me but he felt as if the art was not the best representation for each artist. He had...More

The exibits are world-class and local at the same time. The gift shop is a great find. The restaurant is surprisingly good.

The museum had great exhibits and it was free!! After walking down the river walk and it being extremely hot, we stopped in the art museum and was glad we did. It was beautiful and it cooled us off for awhile. Would definitely visit again.

This place has been around since 1979, home to many antiquities and Contemporary art. Located on the banks of the Hillsborough River in Downtown Tampa. Went here with the family we all had a fantastic day.

There's something outstanding about the TMA: its design. For architecture aficionados, it's borderline pornographic, and it transcends its own purpose as an structure to become a work of art in itself. Which is admittedly quite cool for little Tampa. At night, it seems to float...More

I called the front desk and the staff member did not understand my request. Instead of being patient and backtracking she was pretty rude and said " I don't know what you're talking about!" It was quite disappointing and uninviting.
