Every time my grandchildren come to Tampa they want to visit this museum. It's well thought out and interesting for kids. They learn so much without knowing that they are learning.

My husband and I brought our 3 year old. It was $40 for the three of us to enter. There were a lot of interesting and participatory exhibits. The place was chaos though. One of the rules is for parents to directly supervise their kids at all times. That did not happen. Having such a little guy, he was getting... More

I went here on a class field trip with the Kindergarten students that I did my internship with. We did a math workshop in the morning and a self-guided tour the rest of the day. This museum has three floors. The first floor has a "sandpit" and a huge model of the Port of Tampa that the kids can explore.... More

I really like finding activities to do on my departure day to get the most out of my trip and this is what we went with during our last day in Tampa. This was a great place to fill our morning before catching a cab to make our afternoon flight. There are three levels of "exhibits" that feature different themes,... More

My wife and I took out 7 and 3 year old to the museum for the afternoon. Lots of activities for them. Look for the coupons at most hotel lobbies in the rack with the brochures. It takes $3 of each person. A pretty good discount considering it's already reasonably priced. We spent about 3 hours there and it was... More

This is a great children's museum! Lots of interactive fun and my 3 boys enjoyed it. My boys, twins age 8 and another age 9, simply had a ball! You can easily spend 2 hours of fun here. There are 3 floors of fun (3rd floor exhibit changes, it was Wizard of Oz during our visit). Also, the people who... More

GCM is a great place for young children to explore and play. All the exhibits are touchable and fun . Bring an extra set of clothes as they are apt to get wet in the water play area. We have visited many times and will go back several more times, I'm sure !

I love that it is inside and there is ton for the boys to do. You can pack a lunch and eat it outside or buy Subway there and eat inside. If it isn't too busy we have eaten our packed lunches inside by the Subway. There is also a playground outside that we usually go to before we go... More
