Tampa Museum of Art
For those wishing to travel to Tampa Florida specifically to enjoy a broad range of art related experiences, collections of twentieth centauries' and contemporary art and also a renowned collection of Greek and roman antiquities, the Tampa Museum of Art is the best place to visit. The Museum also has an attractive special exhibition that provides classical and contemporary shows.
The Tampa Museum of Art which was opened in 1979 and expanded in 2006 is located in downtown on the banks of Hillsborough River that's provides a dramatic view to its visitors. It was expanded because it was too small for its collection and the large number of visitors that it was receiving on daily basis. The new building is said to look like a "metal box sitting on a glass pedestal" and with its aluminum, glass and fiber optic color changing lights in its exterior walls, makes the building itself become the work of art.
Apart from the contemporary shows and exhibitions, the museum is also complimented with a wide range of classes, lecturers, seminars, walking tours and children activities. This makes it attractive and ideal for all those who are travelling in Tampa Florida. The west side of the Tampa Museum of Art is situated under the cantilevered second floor and is also the public face of the museum, making it an inviting facade for those who visits the park and pedestrians on the river walk.
