I've experienced FMoPA as a student (taking a photography seminar), and visitor, enjoying exhibits. It's a must-visit destination for Florida residence, and those visiting from out of town. A Tampa gem!

Visited with our 8th and 10th grader. Kept our family busy for just over an hour. Had three displays, all of which captured and held our interest. A little smaller than we expected. The staff was incredibly friendly, welcoming, and helpful.

I wouldn't call this a museum. It had local photographs, not many of them and, honestly, only a few were good. Exhibit has 2 floors but an entire floor was being remodeled so there was literally nothing up there. Waste of $10 a person. My...More
