Veterans Memorial Park and Rear Admiral LeRoy Collins, Jr. Veterans Museum is located at 3602 N. U.S. Highway 301 in Tampa. The facility is an official Hillsborough County Park located directly on the sparkling Tampa Bay Bypass Canal and is open daily from 8 am, to 5 p.m. The museum is open from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily, except for Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, and New Year's Day.
