This "museum" is an absolute joke, and I'm not laughing. There were cubicles right in the center of the exhibit, a very small amount of photographs to be accounted for, and absolutely no theme at all. I learned nothing about the history of photography, and I can see now why they ask for a donation, rather than a set admission. To be completely honest, if they had asked for the donation at the end rather than the beginning, I wouldn't have given them a cent. Such an odd place.

Hello Gabi, I am sorry your experience wasn't as good as expected. Unfortunately we are not a history of photography museum, we specialized in photographic arts. Join us on May 1st for our first Friday opening reception. Artist Jim Reynolds will be in attendance for an artist lecture and it will also be the grand opening of our fashion exhibition. Come join us for this event and hopefully this experience will be more pleasant. We appreciate your honesty and please continue giving us feedback. Florida Museum of Photographic Arts

This is hardly a museum of photographic arts, or museum of anything. It is a gallery featuring photos, of historical significance at best but not a museum. The featured exhibit I saw was unimpressive and uninformative. My experience was very disappointing and I do not recommend visiting this facility. I really expected a museum with exhibits which described the history of photography. There is nothing at all like that here.

Seems like a waste of time. Exhibits are small and there is little information about what you are seeing. It seems more like a small gallery than a museum. $20 for us to get in was steep for what we saw. It is a spectacular building but the facility and staff are significantly lacking.The Tampa Museum of Art right across the park was so much better. Very disappointed. Will not be back.

This museum is very nice and intimate. The people at the front desk are very friendly and welcoming. The galleries are interesting in design and the work that they show is also interesting. I'm not extremely knowledgeable about photography or photographers, so I like that they show artists with which I'm not familiar. They open a door for me to want to explore and find out more about the artists and other artists like them.

Always enjoy visiting the every changing collections and shows at FMOPA. We (everyone in Tampa) are VERY lucky to have this here in our town.
