Ybor City Museum State Park
Welcome to Ybor City Museum State Park
Don Vicente Martinez Ybor came to an area of pine scrub and swamp to build what became the "Cigar Capital of the World."
From the opening of the first cigar factory in 1886 until the 1930s, Ybor City flourished. This urban park is dedicated to the preservation of Ybor City's unique cultural heritage.
The museum, housed in the historic Ferlita Bakery, traces the rich cultural history of Ybor City and the cigar making industry. The museum has self-guided exhibits, with written and audio information, and a video presentation. La Casita, a restored cigar worker's house, is open for viewing 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Guided tours are available Wednesday through Sunday. The ornamental garden can be rented for events after regular park hours.
Located at the corner of Ninth Avenue and 19th Street in Tampa.
