One of Tampa’s signature holiday traditions is the Victorian Christmas Stroll, which has taken place at the H.B. Plant Museum every December for 31 years.
The former Tampa Bay Hotel captures the Victorian spirit of the season with 14 exhibit rooms; each uniquely trimmed in 19th century themes and antique holiday accessories. Also on display are antique toys dating from the 1890’s to 1930’s.
Complimentary cider and cookies will be served on the veranda every day, and each evening carolers will perform.
Admission is $13 for adults, $11 seniors and $7 youth ages 4 - 18.
Save some money by visiting on the discounted admission days of December 3, 4, 10, and 11 when tickets are reduced to $9 for adults, $8 for seniors, and $5 for youth.
The H.B. Plant Museum is located at 401 W. Kennedy Blvd., Tampa and is open for the the Christmas Stroll from 10 a.m. until 8 p.m. daily from Saturday, Dec. 1 through Sunday, Dec. 23.
