Not huge, but packed with things to see. The audio tour was disjointed (not in order) but interesting and well worth listening to. It's well curated with period objects; not expensive per se, but all appropriate and not junk. You really do get a sense...More
This Museum is actually in the old historical and beautiful Tampa Hotel built by Henry Plant. Today, it's also the home of the University of Tampa. It's a great place to spend a few hours touring the building and grounds.
Quick visit due to the free Smithsonian ticket. Free parking in the garage in the back. Limited parking up front.

We spent most of the day touring and enjoying the grounds, sitting on park benches, watching activity on the bay. Park (free) pay admittance,museum,gift shop,buy snacks & etc. You have a guide through the museum. Then you are given earphones and you are on your own to spend more time in museum or go across the street to see Edison & Ford houses. You can wander around at your leisure. Don't try to rush it. Have a relaxing day of education, fun and leisure. Beautiful grounds around houses. Antique cars, etc
