A peek inside the Water Ski Experience Hall of Fame and Museum



The Water Ski Experience Hall of Fame and Museum is a smaller attraction that can be a challenge to visit.

It’s located next to I-4, about half-way between Tampa and Orlando. It’s normally open weekdays, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. It’s common to travel between Tampa and Orlando early morning and late night, or on weekends and holidays when the museum is closed. So many locals and visitors have seen this attractive blue building from I-4 many times, but never get to see what’s inside. Here’s a peek, through a quick set of photos.
