The Tampa Museum of Art aims to create an exceptional environment for exploring new ideas and innovative experiences through modern and contemporary art, and innovative community programs. The region’s largest museum devoted to the art of our time, the Museum has a strong reputation for embracing new media and contemporary photography.
The Museum has an indoor/outdoor café that serves light meals, snacks and beverages throughout the day, and a gift shop. The Sono Café overlooks the banks of the Hillsborough River and serves a delicious menu of hand-crafted lunches, weekend brunches, and coffees, gelato, and juices. The Guilders and Florida Communications Group Museum Store is located on the ground floor of the Museum and offers a well-curated collection of fascinating objects, including art books, home décor items, and exhibition-related gifts.
The Tampa Museum of Art features collections of modern and contemporary art, as well as Roman, Greek, and Etruscan Antiquities. One of the permanent collections of the Museum is the exterior of the museum building itself, known as Sky (Tampa), which features 45-foot high, 300-foot wide programmable LED lights, tucked in between perforated aluminum panels. The installation showcases movement and light through a sequencing of patterns – during the museum’s façade creates a moiré-like pattern, while at night, the LED light installation glows in a signature light-coded hypnotic dance. Sky (Tampa) is on view every evening beginning at dusk. Photo: Tampa Museum of Art
