Facility:Henry B. Plant Museum
Description:The Henry B. Plant Museum interprets the turn-of-the-century Tampa Bay Hotel and the lifestyles of America's Gilded Age. Critical to the success of this mission is the restoration and preservation of this National Historic Landmark, an opulent 1891 railroad resort, and the artifacts significant to its history and the life and work of Henry Bradley Plant. Through educational exhibits and events, the museum transports visitors of all ages and backgrounds to the late Victorian period, the beginnings of Florida's tourist industry, and the early years of the city of Tampa. This quintessential Victorian palace features unique Moorish revival architecture, opulent European furniture and art treasures of the original railroad resort. The past will delight you at the Henry B. Plant Museum.

As a homeschool family, Daddy misses out on many field trips and adventures. So when it came to the Henry B Plant Museum, we scheduled it for a weekend so he could join us. We all had a fabulous day, and the museum was a hit with both girls (ages 8 and 11). Perhaps our favorite part was a brief play (skit) performed by local actors in reference to the Spanish American War. The girls sat in the front row and never moved! It was a special family day.
