Special programs and tours
  • Visit the Tampa Bay History Center for a hands-on exploration of 12,000 years of Florida culture and tradition
  • Learn about the buccaneering pirates and explorers who sailed and plundered along Florida's coasts, and see rare artifacts
  • Learn about Florida's history with interactive displays that tell the stories of its inhabitants and the land

The bays, inlets, and islands around modern-day Florida and the Caribbean were once awash with pirates, conquistadors, and colonists from all over the world. It's no surprise then, that Tampa Bay's History Center is such a fact-laden treasure trove.

There's more than just Florida's sea culture on offer. The museum also displays a comprehensive, interactive timeline of the Sunshine State, from the story of its first people, the Paleo-Indians, to its role as a tourist hotspot today.

There's a bounty of fun activities to discover. Learn about pirates and privateers who hunted for gold and silver, climb aboard a full-scale 18th-century sailing sloop, and choose your own adventure in the Pirate's Fate interactive exhibit. You can also look upon 400-year-old relics and hear tales of doomed high-sea expeditions in the Treasure Seekers Gallery.

Browse the Touchton Map Library for a cartographic look at Tampa over the centuries, and see other exhibits and galleries focused on war tales, agriculture, civil rights, and more.
