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.
