Columbia’s Centennial Museum

While I’m playing virtual tour guide I figured I’d give the Columbia’s
Centennial Museum a
mention of it’s own. Opened to help celebrate the Columbia Restaurant’s 100 years in
Ybor City the exhibit highlights the heritage of the Hernandez and Gonzmart families. It’s a small museum once you step
out of the gift shop packed with take-home sangria mixes, beautiful tiles like the ones found decorating the
restaurant itself, and other trinkets. Artifacts collected by both families over time fill the glass cases and
captions help paint a greater picture of the area that was once cigar capital of the world.

Located not too far from the restaurant on the corner of 21st Street and 7th Ave it’s a good way to steal
some A.C. after a filling meal.
