1st visit. Nice facility, but very small. Didn't take long to get through all the exhibits. What I thought would be an all day outting turned out to be less than 2 hours, and that's walking very slowly, taking pictures at every exhibit and spending time in the gift shop. I didn't like the fact that if you park in the parking garage you have to walk over train tracks to enter the museum. Active or not it's not a good idea walking on train tracks with little kids. I would say one visit is enough, not the type of place to visit over and over again.

I've walked passed this museum hundreds of times but never had the opportunity to visit until recently. I brought a friend along and we had a great time. She used her college student ID for free entry and I used my educator pass for half off. (pretty cool discounts for students, teachers, and staff). The museum is very clean. Everything is laid out in a fashion that is visually pleasing. The exhibits we're professionally arranged to provide the best experience for visitors as well. We had a great time, and I know you will too.

We just spent an afternoon at the museum and loved it. We were impressed with the detailed, clear, very helpful explanations of artifacts and works of art. We could read information about each object rather than just seeing its title (or even less in some otherwise fine museums). There is an excellent variety of works displayed and presented in a logical, comprehensible way. The architecture of the building itself and its site at the water is worth going to see.

I heard a lot of people say that this museum wasn't very big, and wasn't worth the cost of admission. I attended just a few weeks ago, and was completely surprised. This museum pulls in world-class exhibits, and you can buy a yearly membership for only $50. The membership lets you in to about 15 other local museums, including the Henry B. Plant, the Tampa Museum of Photography, and the Ringling Museum. They have so many cool events, including the Gasp! Performing arts festival. I can't do it justice in a small review. You should really try it out.

The TMA is a fun and interesting place to go. My wife and I did enjoy the exhibit of art from local artists. We also enjoyed the small permanent collection of ancient artifacts from Greece, Rome, Egypt etc. The collection is a small but good one. However, the museum is not an all day activity. It is perfect for the end of the day or as a filler in between other activities.
