Lonely Planet review
Architect Stanley Saitowitz's dramatically cantilevered museum building appears to float above Curtis Hixon Park overlooking the Hillsborough River. Inside its sculptural shell six galleries house a permanent collection of Greek and Roman antiquities beside contemporary exhibitions of photography and new media. It's most recent show exhibited the work from Tampa's cutting-edge Graphicstudio, showcasing 110 printworks by 45 artists including Robert Rauschenberg, Louise Bourgeois, Chuck Close and Christian Marclay.
The museum's Sono Café , by the creative team behind Mise en Place , is a great place for brunch or cocktails overlooking the river. The cafe is accessible through an admission-free entrance.
