    OPENING SOON! Crab Devil’s premier attraction, The Peninsularium, is a multi-artist, multi-million-dollar effort to provide Tampa with its first and only permanent, immersive arts installation experience. Drawing on Tampa’s history as a port city and center of maritime commerce, The Peninsularium is constructed from an assemblage of repurposed shipping containers harkening back to the traveling circuses of the early 1900’s. The Peninsularium is imagined as a family-friendly cabinet of curiosities ripe with kitsch, bizarre history, and fantastical lore, showcasing Florida at its most weird and wild, presented through the guise of a typical roadside establishment, the Crab Devil Bait Shop. Housed alongside one of Tampa’s premier contemporary art galleries, Tempus Projects, as well as the boundary-defying craft brewery operation of Deviant Libation, this joint venture serves as a one-stop-shop for all things creative and interesting about Tampa’s past, present, and future.
