Plan a custom outreach event

Providing a dose of Tampa Bay history at your next corporate meeting or celebration is perfect for educating and entertaining attendees. Our professional staff members or docents will enlighten your guests on a number of subjects, such as:

  • History of Davis Islands
  • Ybor City and Urban Renewal
  • A Peek Inside the Museum’s Temporary Exhibits
  • Florida Wars


Outreach presentations are available Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. – 6 p.m. We do our best to staff weekend and evening speaking engagements, but we cannot guarantee every request.

Support from the community is critical and allows the Tampa Bay History Center to continue its community Outreach service. Any level of donation by your group will be greatly appreciated! Book Your Presentation Today!
