Photo Slideshow: Ybor City Museum, Tampa

"Ybor City Architecture: Our Stories" is a special exhibit on display at the Ybor City Museum through September of 2012.

The exhibit features iconic buildings, including some of the 84 listed on the National Register of Historic Places, unique casitas and signature architectural elements of Ybor City.

The event featured local artwork, food, live music by Acho Brother, a popular local Electro /Folk / Latin band, and a live dance performance by the University of Tampa Latin Dance Team.
