The History Center invites you to grab your smartphone, camera, and our clues, and trek through Tampa’s urban treasures during “The Great Caper: Photo Safari!” on Sat. April 20.
The Caper begins with a mini photography lesson by a pro from the Florida Museum of Photographic Arts followed by a photo scavenger hunt through the History Center’s galleries, which include two photo-themed exhibits: Florida Wildlife Corridor: The Photographs of Carlton Ward Jr., and The Big Picture: A Selection of Cirkut Photographs from the Burgert Brothers Collection.
After exploring the History Center, set your own pace as you hop on and off the TECO Streetcar Line in search of landmarks and historic treasures. Along the way, you’ll uncover clues, test your knowledge of Tampa trivia, and photograph historic sites in Ybor City and downtown. Upload your pics to win an Instagram challenge, and return to the History Center for prizes, kids crafts, and other activities.
The Great Caper: Photo Safari! takes place from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. $12 per child; $18 per adult includes streetcar fare and History Center admission for the day. TBHC members receive a $3 discount for adults and a $2 discount for children. Pre-registration is recommended.
The Great Caper is sponsored by the TECO Streetcar Line, Tampa Bay Times, the Tampa Downtown Partnership.
