This Month at the History Center

Occupying 60,000 square feet in Tampa’s Channelside District, exhibits draw a path through time, linking modern culture with cigar factories, sports legends, railroad tycoons, cattle drives, pioneers, Spanish conquistadors and Florida’s first native inhabitants — 12,000 years in all.
