Surround yourself with the lifestyle of the Gilded Age. Experience the development of Tampa in the late 19th century, the Cuban Campaign of the Spanish-American War, and the vision of steamship and railroad magnate Henry Plant.  Whether you are an educator; program coordinator for a camp, club organization, or after-school program; researcher; adult, or youth, the Henry Plant Museum offers a variety of resources to enhance your experience year-round.

Since 1933, the Tampa Bay Hotel has been home to the Henry B. Plant Museum and The University of Tampa. The building, renamed Plant Hall, is a National Historic Landmark. The Henry B. Plant Museum holds the distinction of accreditation by the American Alliance of Museums. Its mission is to interpret the history and lifestyle of America’s Gilded Age and the life and significant contributions of Henry Bradley Plant to the development of Florida and Tampa Bay. Original furnishings and artifacts and a dynamic self-guided audio tour immerse visitors in the opulence of the 1891 Tampa Bay Hotel and its rich history.
