The Florida Maritime Museum (FMM) is excited to announce the opening of a new temporary exhibit, “Cuban Fishing Ranchos in Tampa Bay” on Thursday, October 12th from 5:30 to 7pm. Seasonal visitors are nothing new to Florida. For more than 100 years, between the mid-1800s, Cuban fishermen set up seasonal fishing camps along our coast where they would catch fish, salt them, and send them back to Cuba to sell. In this exhibit, explore what brought these visitors to our shores and what happened to them.
