Ybor City State Museum - Review
Part of the essential TampaNational Historic Landmark District, this converted state museum has one especially famous legacy – the Cuban bread. While Tampa contests’ Miami as the true source of the Cuban bread, Francesco Ferlita’s bakery, once housed in this very building, seems to be the more viable origin. At the museum, you can still see the ovens in which the bread was baked. The permanent exhibits explores the founding of Ybor, history of the cigar industry and the associated immigrant groups.
The museum also includes the Casita, furnished in the recreation of a cigar worker’s house, as it would have looked a hundred years ago – bedrooms, kitchen, living room and play room.
Outside the museum is a Mediterranean style garden, in which the organisation allows you to host events such as weddings and receptions, corporate events, private parties, fundraisers.

Ybor City State Museum, Tampa Reviews
The visit to Ybor City State Park was excellent! The staff were extremely helpful, excited about their piece of history and the Ranger on duty even made sure my young son was entertained. Far above the call of duty. I found the tour itself was very interesting in learning more about our local history, the cigar industry and world events, particularly Cuban history. Cost of admission is only $4 per person and military, retired or active, who we're wounded due to combat are free for life. Talk to the staff about this for more details.
Very small but nice museum. Gives you very good history on the area. $4 per adult included tour through the Casita.
An informative and peaceful place to visit. Plenty of beaches to relax on and roosters to feed. They have lived here for many decades.
Great museum, very well maintained grounds, interactive exhibits, great for kids 5+, and overall on the cheaper side ($3-$8 per ticket). Will only take about an hour or 2 to get through everything.
Very fun inexpensive worthwhile educational and must be honest our tour guide was pretty hot too wouldn't have minded having him give me a private tour
