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.
