One of the great attractions in Ybor is the Ybor City Museum. Today the museum is a state park in the heart of Ybor. The State Park contains permanent exhibits on Vicente Martinez Ybor, the founding and early history of Ybor City, the cigar industry, the social clubs of the city, and the Ferlita Bakery itself. Two years ago, the Ybor City Museum Society initiated changing exhibitions in the Museum space; these change twice yearly. The Ybor City Museum also houses a museum store with a variety of items for sale reflecting the ethnic heritage of the community, the cigar trade, and the site's history.
If you are a cigar aficionado or just love the smell and taste of a great cigar next time you are in Tampa make sure you stop by Ybor City.
