Our boys had lots of fun at Glazer! I would say that the best age for this museum is 18months-8 years old, although kids a bit older will still have fun. Avoid going on Friday mornings -- or call ahead to find out how many & when school/daycare groups will be there and try to avoid them. When we went... More

Kids will absolutely love going to this museum! So many interactive exhibits to explore that you could spend hours here. Great to visit when it's too hot and humid outside or during the few days of FL winter! The price is affordable and you can throw a cooler in the car for a picnic lunch at Curtis Hixon Park afterwards.

Warm greeting by staff member who explained the annual pass, which I bought. Great deal if you go to this museum two or more times a year. A few exhibits were missing parts or were not working properly, but overall, the three toddlers with us really enjoyed the three hours we spent there. The current Wizard of Oz display was... More

This place sucks. It is lame and boooooooooring! Not much else to say. Was not impressed. Had an interactive model of a water plant. Sandbox. Inside of a wall. Ineractive model of a supermarket and fire station

Needs customer service classes! Heard a staff member (chubby late 40's lady) swearing in front of children.

My 3 year old thoroughly enjoyed this children's museum. We went on a weekday morning and it wasn't very busy so it was easy to experience all the different exhibits. The ground floor is fairly small but the upstairs area has quite a few different exhibits! Really enjoyed all the interactive activities! There are several areas where the kids can... More

Located in downtown Tampa this museum kept the kids busy for hours. There is a lot of the museum designed for preschool ages but even our 10 yr old enjoyed it. Lots of learning experiences and some great activities for the kids and we really enjoyed playing around with some of the activities. Highly Recommend!

This is a great place for kids we came on a 1/2 price reciprocal with the one in Phila a GREAT value. My 2&1/2 yr old GS loved it great activities and almost all are working except the elevator so had to walk many steps. Place is clean, nice crowd and not too busy or noisy.
