The Museum of Fine Arts is one of the most beautiful museums in the Southeast. The collection has more than 14,000 objects extending from antiquity to the present day and features stellar French Impressionist paintings. Galleries of Steuben glass, decorative arts, and pre-Columbian objects are especially dramatic.
Two interior gardens, one devoted to sculpture, encourage reflection. An intimate second-floor gallery, in the new wing, displays works on paper and photographs. The Museum’s photography collection of over 10,000 images is one of Florida’s most respected. The MFA has been repeatedly named the best art museum in the Tampa Bay area by regional media.
