The Ybor City Museum Society is the primary interpreter and conservator of Ybor City's rich history and heritage. Our multidisciplinary programs and exhibits provide educational experiences about the people and events that brought immigrant groups together beginning in 1886. Many of them worked in Tampa's renowned cigar industry or provided essential goods and services to those who did. These early citizens of Ybor City preserved their own traditions and were the first contributors to the City's cultural diversity, whose mores and flavors are still evident in modern-day Tampa.
