New Downtown Tampa Arts & Entertainment Pass

If you're looking to grab a deal in your own backyard, the Tampa Downtown Partnership has launched a discounted pass to check out various locations in Downtown. 

The Downtown A&E Pass offers:

  • entry into three museums (Henry B. Plant Museum, Florida Museum of Photographic Arts,  Tampa Bay History Center)
  • a ticket to catch a movie at the Tampa Theatre and
  • value-added deals for the TECO Line Streetcar and six restaurants downtown.

The deal is a way to let people know what Downtown Tampa has to offer.

John Sansone works with the Spain Restaurant and Toma Bar, one of the participating restaurants. Sansone says Downtown has a life that gets overlooked.

"There's just a lot of diversity, there's a lot of people, there's a lot of events that go on that I think a lot of people miss. They think of downtown as just being sleepy and it's not that any longer," he says.

The Downtown A&E pass is worth almost $80 dollars but can be purchased for $30 and it's valid through September 30.

The passes can be purchased at:

  • Florida Museum of Photographic Arts
  • Henry B. Plant Museum
  • Tampa Bay History Center
  • Tampa Theatre
