The Ybor City Museum Society Has Been Leading the Charge…


The Ybor City Museum Society has been leading the charge to create the Tampa Baseball Museum at the Al Lopez House. This new museum fits like a well-oiled mitt on the Society’s mission to preserve, promote and celebrate the unique cultural heritage of Ybor City, one of only two National Historic Landmark Districts in Florida.

Established in 1982, the Society creates exhibits, programming, educational tours, cultural and historical resources for the Ybor City Museum State Park, and develops research tools to ensure that Ybor City’s significant history remains at the forefront of Tampa culture.

As a nonprofit organization, the Society depends on support from its members, corporate sponsors and donors to help fund its programming and activities. Other sources of support include garden rentals, sales from the Museum Store and leasing of the historic casitas in the Centennial Park 19th Street Retail Area. When the Tampa Baseball Museum opens, the Society will enjoy a new stream of support.

Get involved to help ensure that our important history is preserved for future generations and communicated to all who are interested in our rich cultural heritage.
