What a beautiful setting! Each month they have a new show and artist lecture. The location is right downtown near the art museum and the children's museum.

Do not go! Museum is on second and third floor only. There are no stairs which is unsafe in case of a fire. One elevator was down for repair. The other one was stalling and had to be started by a security guard every time. I should have called the fire department. We were charged $10.00 each - not a... More

I was in town for the day and thought I'd stop into the museum. I met one of the artists as they were removing an exhibit. They were kind enough to talk about their travels and give context to the set. Staff were helpful, and the museum is nice and quite. Great place to see an exhibit.

This little exhibition space spreads over two floors of an architecturally interesting building that appears to be called The Cube. The exhibits are small-ish and elegant...in fact you could say the exhibiting aesthetic is a bit minimalist. But 3 exhibits when we visited...One by a local photographer that was honestly pretty uninteresting. But two excelelnt main exhibits: one by an... More

I've been several times and each time is a different selection of exhibits. Wide variety in subject, style, even size. You almost can't believe its the same venue, the variations are so great. Warrants continuing visits.

As other's say it is like a small gallery. Don't expect to see their permanent collection that is shown on their website as it is only shown a few times a year. Staff very friendly but very small collection. They do have cards available at the front desk that tell you about the photographers but they should have more information... More

There were there were three exhibits. Minimal info about artist(s), or the photography. If it was free I am not sure I would recommend it, it does cost to go in.

As other reviewers have mentioned, this is more like a gallery than a museum. We found the exhibit by the Iranian photographer quite interesting. There was also an photo exhibit of local people suffering from alzheimer's along with a narrative about their background that was also interesting.

I came here with a friend, who is a member, for my second visit to this "museum" (more like a gallery space) in a Tampa downtown office building, occupying parts of two floors. It is clean, quiet, and modern. Because of the limited space in this venue, they generally offer no more than three photographic exhibits at one time, which... More

I enjoyed the work on display, but would categorize this as a photography gallery more than a museum. The work seems to be offerings of artists but not curated as exhibits.
