The Ybor City Museum offers visitors a glimpse of the past. The museum has three parts: a historic Casita (a cigar worker's home), a museum with changing exhibits (while we were there there was a special section in the influence of baseball), and a movie that shares the history of the area (the immigrants, the influence of cigar making and the Ybor City ties to Cuba). The Cassita is visited with a park ranger, the other two sections - the museum and film - are done independently. The cost is $ 4 per person (under age 5 are free) and, depending on how long you like to dally in the museum, may be completed in about 1 hour.
We found it well worth the visit because it gave us the background of the area. We found ourselves walking down the main street afterwards and looking at buildings and saying.."ah, that was in the movie". The park ranger who showed us the Cassita (Jessica?) was informative and interesting. We would recommend a visit if you are in the area.
