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

We went here with my 2 y.old daughter. What a lovely place!! They had a little bit of everything from grocery stores, science, sand play and a HUGE tree slide in the middle. She loved it and didn't want to leave- I highly suggest this place- don't know how it is on the w-ends, we went during the week and... More

Great for kids ages 3-9, I think anything over 9 might be a little bored...I have a 4&6 year old and they LOVE the place :) went today and had a blast...the only negative I have is, I hate to pay to park in the garage (but I don't think that's their fault!)

Took my niece and nephew who are 4 and 6. They loved it! So many hands on things to keep them busy! They really enjoyed the Publix grocery store! Recommend children wear a bathing suit under their clothes because they do have a water feature outside for kids to play in after your visit to the museum. We will be... More

We enjoyed our visit to the Glazer museum. My six year old loved pretending to be a veterinarian and pretending to shop in the supermarket. I was concerned about cleanliness of props for the kids like the pilot hats and fireman hats. At other museums they would have throw away hair covers. The area she least enjoyed was the water...

We took our grandchildren ages 3 and 6. Disappointing in the number and quality of the exhibits. One or two they really enjoyed but that is all. For the money i say not worth the price of a ticket. Good restroom facilities, a Subway for eating is only food available. Perhaps we expected too much.

We were welcomed as soon as you walked in the door. At the ticket counter she warned us that there were a lot of field trips going on and where those kids were if we wanted to avoid it and showed us on a map the two areas designed just for our toddler son.

Every aspect of this experience kept my grandson very active. From the mini Publiix where he shopped and filled up his cart to the restaurant where he served us pretend pizzas and made sandwiches. This museum is weel thought out for children.

I've visited 3 times with my grandchildren & was unpleasantly surprised at how poorly the museum exhibits have been maintained. My last visit was shortly after the museum opened for the day. It was surprisingly empty for a Saturday morning. There is an incredible representation of Tampa Bay on the first floor but there were no sailboat parts for the... More

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.
