Welcome to the Sulphur Springs Museum and Heritage Center

Our Mission


To celebrate the cultural, social and natural history of Sulphur Springs, a community that helped shape Tampa, while providing the community with educational resources that focus on the broader state of Florida; to contribute to the community's economic growth; increase respect for its natural and cultural features and promote a clean, safe environment.


Last chance to see

SA'EY'AMA: The Power of Brass in the Kingdom of Benin.

Learn about the ancient empire of Benin, one of the inspirations for "Black Panther's" Wakanda.



A special thanks to Florida Humanities, which awarded us $8,000 in CARES funding for 2020, provided by the National Endowment for the Humanities. Their generosity helped us get through a very difficult year!

Along with the exhibit, we were thrilled to begin our lecture series again. Our last talk was in February 2020! The Ancient Kingdom of Benin: The Original Wakanda? was presented June 13 to an audience of 30 people. Thanks for your support!

While "out and about" come visit our exhibits, offering informational panels on Juneteenth, Sulphur Springs, and our Vintage Postcard Collection -- all part of our permanent collection.

2020 was a difficult  year! But we are still here, and looking forward to the future. See our 2020 Newsletter.
