(Tampa) –Gallery admission to the Tampa Bay History Center will now include parking, the result of a partnership between the History Center and the Tampa Bay Lightning. The change went into effect on Oct. 1.
Museum visitors paying for gallery entry will receive a parking token that can be used to park at the Tampa Bay Times Forum East Lot, located directly adjacent to the History Center.
Parking tokens will be issued with paid gallery admission and are valid during the museum’s regular operating hours, 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. daily.
Members of the Tampa Bay History Center will also receive an allotted quantity of parking validations as a member benefit depending on their membership level.
The Tampa Bay History Center, which opened its 60,000 square-foot facility in 2009, includes three floors of permanent and temporary exhibition space focusing on the history of the Tampa Bay area. A Smithsonian Affiliate, the History Center features a museum store, the Witt Research Center (a branch of the Hillsborough County Public Library System), and the Columbia Cafe.
