Expand. Enhance. Educate.
The Tampa Bay Region is booming. Increasing population, community development, and fast-growing markets demand for more exhibition, education, special events and sustainability programming from the Tampa Museum of Art. To meet those needs, the Museum has renovated and is expanding its existing building. This transformational project will ensure a lasting cultural presence in the region.
The Tampa Museum of Art’s transformative renovation and expansion plans for its downtown Tampa campus, enhances the visitor experience and public access, more than triples its education and exhibition spaces, increases the museum’s sustainability and income generation abilities, and completes a cultural landmark for the City.
In 2023, the Museum completed its 25,000 square foot renovation of existing space which included the addition of seven new gallery spaces, enhanced visibility on the first floor, a redesigned lobby and store, and an 8,000 SF Vinik Family Education Center. When completed , the future expansion will add a crystalline, four-story structure to the waterfront adding approximately 51,000 square feet of programmable space along the Hillsborough River that includes a complete site redevelopment of the surrounding area.
