One of the most imposing buildings of the early years of Tampa, a luxurious railroad resort, houses the Henry B. Plant Museum. Among the various artifacts, early 19th century Valentine cards and Gasparilla royalty gowns are on display. A separate exhibit is dedicated to the 'King of Florida', Henry Plant.

The building in itself and its interior is more than beautiful. A definitely worthwhile attraction of Florida's historical city, Tampa.
