In the heart of the city located on its riverwalk is the Tampa Museum of Art [120 W Gasparilla Plaza, Tampa, FL 33602].
It is a small museum that is unique architecturally – at night the sides even light up with LED lights.
Outside are some cool sculptures, be sure to walk around the perimeter of the building.
Inside offerings include both modern and classic art.
Be sure to look at the rotating exhibits to see what’s going on and for any events. Free admission for students with college IDs!
