New Programs

The Ybor City Museum State Park remains closed for now. In the meantime, the Ybor City Museum Society is continuing to create new events and programs you can enjoy right from your home. We hope these help you experience and celebrate Ybor City's rich history and cultural heritage and provide activities for home schoolers.

If you are following "Fernando's Footsteps", a tale of old Tampa written by Tony CarreƱo, note that new parts to the story are posted every Tuesday and Thursday on our website. Join Tony will on Facebook Live every Thursday at 4 pm for a reading and Q&A. Those who are new to the story can read all the installments here

Bringing local families together to celebrate the game, the Tampa Baseball Museum at the Al Lopez House has launched a Facebook Live series entitled "Who's on Wednesdays".  We will will bring baseball greats and iconic figures right to your home over the next few weeks! Tune in every Wednesday at 4pm or watch the videos from guests including Joe Maddon, Tim Mead, Orestes Destrade, Marc Topkin, Wes Singletary, Neil Solondz, and other guests following their scheduled Live presentation. 

As always, your support means a lot to us and helps fulfil our mission. Please consider a donation of any size so that we can share Ybor City's unique history in new and exciting ways.

 

 Welcome 

The Ybor City Museum Society and Ybor City Museum State Park invite you to experience the rich cultural heritage of Ybor City, Tampa's National Historic Landmark District. Visit the Museum located in the 1923-era Ferlita Bakery, its lush Mediterranean-style garden and the "casita," representative of a typical cigar-worker's family home. Check often for special events, programming updates and news on the many exciting activities that the Museum and Society plan for you. Education and research tools help active learners, teachers and students learn more about the role Ybor City played in Tampa's development and its reputation as the "Cigar Capital of the World." To help preserve this legacy and ensure that it is available for future generations, we urge you to get involved by becoming a member, volunteer or donor.
