Could've spent all day here

If it were A little cheaper, I would have rated it excellent. However, if I were local, I would have bought the season pass and that would've made the price worth it. A season... read more

Can't believe we haven't been here before. I was blown away by how much there was to do and how much the kids enjoyed it. So many adventures to be had.

We took our two kids here while visiting family in the area and they loved it. Our oldest (3) couldn't decide what she wanted to do as everything was so exciting to her. I'm pretty sure she would have been fine staying there all day. Our son (1) was probably too little for most things at the time, although he... More

We decided to buy a membership, so my son and I could visit the museum many times during our stay in Tampa. This was the best decision I could make. He loves this place! They have a calendar of activities, so you can decide when to visit the museum. This include some specific days when the entrance is free. There... More

If it were A little cheaper, I would have rated it excellent. However, if I were local, I would have bought the season pass and that would've made the price worth it. A season pass is one price for the entire family. There are three floors with plenty to do, very helpful staff, and areas throughout the entire place just... More

We have been to this museum probably 4 times now. Each time it gets worse. Half of the stuff does not work. Pretend toys missing, hardly no pretend food in the Publix and Outback area. A few years ago this place was great. Every year gets worse. The family that owns this museum could afford to hire staff to work... More

The kids loved it. They were able to run around and play while they discovered new things. Great for a hot summer day since it's indoors. The only thing I didn't like was that they only had subway for lunch. It would've been nice if they had a larger selection.

We've been to this museum a few times. It's standard size for a children's museum (small). There are two levels of play.m with lots of engaging options even for my older elementary kids. My only complaint is large school groups. Makes it difficult to enjoy the play elements with so many kiddos.

We are brand new to the Tampa area. My husband's first day of work happen to fall on a Tuesday when they offer to get in free from 2-7. He works at the next building over so I figured we would stop by and spend a couple hours there until he got off. I am going to start off by... More

My daughters are 10 and 11. We've run the circuit of children's museums in central Florida but hadn't yet been to the Glazer Museum. Although the exhibits were VERY similar to Great Explorations museums in the area, my kids had a blast there ALL day! There's a Subway cafe on the first floor but you can also bring your own...

We took our grandsons ages 3 and 5 for a visit recently. They loved the museum. The activities were of interest for both. From the moment you enter the kids are engaged. Learning about water from interactions with many hands on activities to playing in the sand. The second floor is just as exciting. The playscape is very safe and... More
