Glazer Children's Museum is a wonderful, educational interactive museum. Annual passes are reasonable and there is even a Grandparent's pass which allows a family of 5 to enjoy 10 visits over a two year period for only $100 (that averages out to $2 a person per visit). Next to the Children's Museum is Curtis Hixon Park where events are held frequently and where there is a set of 7 rows of water spouts that children can play in. It also has a very nice playground. There is a view of the minarets of the University of Tampa from the park.  

AirHeads Trampoline Arena is a great place for weather proof family fun. They offer open jumping, trampoline dodgeball, fitness classes and more! Admission is free, unlimited jumping is $17.95 for the day.
