TAMPA — Set sail with the Tampa Bay History Center as the museum, located on downtown Tampa’s Riverwalk, unveiled “Treasure Seekers: Conquistadors, Pirates and Shipwrecks,” an all-new gallery experience that opened to the public last month.

The first expansion of the History Center since opening in 2009, the 8,500-square-foot permanent addition features a 60-foot, 18th-century pirate ship as its centerpiece, and introduces visitors to explorers who landed in “La Florida” more than 500 years ago as well as little-known pirates like “Calico” Jack Rackham and Anne Bonny, who prowled Florida’s coasts in the 1700s.
