Passengers passing through Tampa can learn more about the area's history as a cruise port by visiting a new exhibition at the Tampa Bay History Centre.
Opening on January 17th, the exhibition will bring the post's history to life with an array of photographs, murals and historical artefacts.
One of the highlights of the exhibition is a shipping container which has been converted into a movie theatre.
The theatre will show a six-minute film detailing the history of the port.
Speaking recently, C J Roberts, president and chief executive of the Tampa Bay History Centre, said: "With water playing such an important role in our history, and the port playing such an important role in our economy and the area's identity, it was only natural that we would give the story of our port a prominent place within the new museum."
The exhibition will also feature a "Tiny Tampa" activity table, where children can play with a miniature port model.
Other popular Tampa attractions include the Lowry Park Zoo and the Florida Aquarium, World Travel Guide reports.
