The Ybor City Museum is a local history museum in Tampa, Florida. It celebrates the rich and colorful history of Ybor City, which is also one of the only two National Historic Landmark Districts in the State of Florida.

Ybor City is best known as the ?Cigar Capital of the World?. It was created by Don Vicente Martinez Ybor, a Cuban exile and a prominent cigar manufacturer who moved to the city in the late 1800s. He built the Ybor Cigar Factory, which soon became the largest in the world, and it helped the local Latin community flourish.

Today, the Ybor City Museum chronicles the life and times of the Ybor City. It features a complex that covers about a half of a city block that is filled with history and information. The main museum is housed in the historic Ferlita Bakery.
