My girls are 4 and 2 and love going to the Glazer Museum. There are age - appropriate activities for both of them and a ton of things to do.

My cousin and his family came down to visit and I suggested the Glazer Children's Museum. I was surprised how many activities they had for children of all ages. It's very interactive and the parents/adults can get very involved. It's a must if you have kids to entertain!

We loved this place! We were there for about 3 hours and could have stayed longer. It's very interactive for kids and parents. Also has areas for mothers with babies. The reason I gave it a four star is because there is a few exhibits that are very slow or hard for children to play on their own. For example... More

Glazer was so great when we first went we got an annual pass and haven't stopped going since our child was 2 Years old. We were in Tampa for work and we had to spend some time at Glazer! It's made for kids but it's Adult Friendly! If you have time check out the Park on the River front to,... More

I recently took my seven year old niece to visit the museum. It has a great location, many wonderful exhibits and could have been a great day of fun and learning. Unfortunately, the majority of the children ran wild with no supervision, were pushing and grabbing things from the younger children, pieces from each areas exhibit were strewn about the... More

We really enjoyed this place it was very big and had lots of activities for my kids to enjoy. Why can't give it a 5 is because it is not very well staffed. A lot of kids run free no one to organize cutting in lines. There was a group of kids there from some type of youth camp. There... More

My initial assessment of this museum was that it was mainly for the 3-5 year old crowd. But , my 7 yr old Grandson found many areas that he really loved! The Publix supermarket pretend section was a big hit with the kids who were able to shop using a cart and then do the checkout procedure and bagging. There... More

Our nine year old grand daughter had a fantastic time there. We were initially concerned that she would be bored because of the suggested age through 10 years old. That was not the case. There are all sorts of interactive exhibits which she thoroughly enjoyed: from being a dentist to working at the grocery store. Lots of kids were there... More

We took our visiting grandchildren, and thankfully we had discounted tickets! If I had had to pay full price I would have been upset, as it was,m I was still upset, but the reduced price tempered some of it. Many of the "hands on" exhibits did not work, and those that did operated sporadically. A couple of the "attractions" were... More
