We took my 4 year old and 1 year old here on a Sunday afternoon. They loved it. So much to see and do and explore. It's all just their size. My kids particularly liked the Publix section and the hospital and vet stations. My only complaint is that the other kids take it all apart and then move on.... More

Had a great time with family that was here from out of state. Lucas at the front desk was bubbly, professional and extremely helpful! Would recommend this museum for families with children 12 & under!

The wife had a conference to attend in Sarasota so I spent the day with my two daughters (3years and 1.5years). Glazer Children's Museum was a great place to spend a rainy day. Lots of interactive learning and fun. Two stories filled with educational yet fun hands on activities. Would definitely take them back on our next visit to the... More

We took our grandchildren, ages 7,6,and 2. There was plenty for all to do for many hours. Though our kiddos have different interests and we were pulled in many directions there were plenty of us adults in our group to keep up with their ever moving bodies. Gosh there is so much to explore here from climbing and exploring to... More

We went with a 7years old boy. It was very interesting for him. Really great opportunity a child with this age! For the younger children there is some other playgrounds. Clean and helpful staff!

This place was awesome. I'm currently a zoo member and went to MOSI for "Swaptember" and was disappointed. So I decided to check out Glazer for $6 days. It was definitely worth it! My 9 year old and 1.5 year old spent hours inside and we didn't even see everything. There is not a lot to read (signage), but a... More

Brought my almost-one-year-old with her friends. There was enough for them to do and have fun. Older kids (maybe up to 7-8) will enjoy as well. It's indoors- so great for rainy or way-too-hot days

I was babysitting my 2 nephews, ages 4 and 5. They are smart, very active boys and they were very engaged by the exhibits. It has to be interesting to hold their attention. They loved this museum. Lots to do and see. They could keep moving while learning. Each room seemed to be their favorite. I had to make them... More

After hearing from many of my friends with small children about this place, I decided after spending all day at Tresure Island Beach on Sunday, my nephew needed a day inside away from the sun and heat. So I took him (7 year old) and my mom. We arrived around noon. Parking was hard to find even in the parking... More

I have 2 boys 6 & 7 and they had fun but got bored pretty quickly. While they had fun, the place did not keep them engaged long enough to say it was worth the visit.
