Great rainy day excursion

We visited on a rainy Friday with my husband and two daughters age 4 and 6. We have visited many children's museums and I have to say this one ranks in my top two. Some of the... read more

My grandchildren wanted to go here, so we went while I was visiting. There are so many fun things for children to do. I liked the fact that they are active and using their imaginations. It was quite busy when we arrived, but later in the day there were no lines for some of the activities they wanted to do.... More

The Glazer Children's Museum is such a fun place (and very informative) to visit. The children get hands-on so many things from fire dept equipment, to weather/meteorology, veterinarian/animal care, to singing and acting, climbing and crawling (and running and jumping). The children get to learn about tides and how water moves (wave action). It is alot of fun. The website... More

No kid will ever be board at this place. We went on the wrong day, hoping to make Ice Cream, which apparently was the next day. They understood our situation, gave us tickets to come another day. Meanwhile we got to view the 3 floors of fun. Highly Interactive - they need to have an adult night!! Love it, go... More

I took my 18m son here and it was awesome! There is so much to do. I really loved how there is things for young toddlers to do and stay occupied. It was a great day for family fun!

We enjoyed our morning at the museum. There is fun for all ages, especially toddlers. The staff is friendly and helpful. It can get extremely crowded so check the website for special events and free days. Maybe afternoons are less crowded. I heard from another visitor that he came on the free day and turned right around and left because... More

The place is fun. The staff is fine. When I was digging through my wallet, she saw my City pass brochure and said "Just so you know, We isn't in that Damn city pass program." That is literally how she said it. The rest of the staff is nice, and the elevator is rude. It buzzes for a little while... More

I have a 5- and 7-year-old. They had a fun time! There was a variety of activities, and a Wizard of Oz exhibit that was neat. My youngest especially enjoyed climbing up the tall platforms to the top of the ceiling and "shopping" at the toy Publix. The older one liked the pretend weather-forecast with a real "green screen" and... More
