Permanent Collection


Permanent Collection

Henry and Margaret Plant filled the Tampa Bay Hotel with an eclectic collection of late 19th century furnishings
and treasures gathered from Europe and Asia. The core of the Museum collection is composed of these rare and exotic finds. Victorian styles represented include Renaissance Revival, Gothic, Rococo, Louis XV, and Egyptian Revival. The collection has a strong Asian component with hardwood and marble Chinese furniture and cabinetry. Browse below to view highlights of the collection.

Many of the pieces shown below are on view in the Museum today.  We hope you will visit soon and see these beautiful pieces for yourself.
