Parking
Parking is available in the surrounding garages, lots, and metered street parking. A majority of parking around the museum is owned and managed by the City of Tampa and rates are to the city’s discretion. Rates can change due to city-wide activities such as sports games, concerts, and other special events. For garage, lot, and metered street parking information please visit the City of Tampa website. Accessible parking can be found in the pay-by-the-hour William F. Poe garage adjacent to the Museum. The William F. Poe garage is the appropriate height for van accessibility and offers 20 disabled parking spaces on their 1st, 2nd, and 4th floors.
