Glazer Children’s Museum – Tampa, Florida

The Glazer Children’s Museum is a not-for-profit organization established to promote imaginative play and discovery among children.

Founded in 1986, the Museum had a couple of homes before finally settling into a purpose-built, 53,000-square-foot facility in the Waterfront Arts District of Tampa, FL in 2010. The museum’s more than 170 exhibits entice children to learn more about the world around them through interactive play. Playing inside a replica bank, firehouse, café, hospital, vet clinic, and other real-life spaces, young guests can hone their math, logic, and empathy skills while having fun.

The Glazer Children’s Museum has a number of virtual offerings in addition to its in-person features. Seasonal play themes and daily activities, such as a gratitude journal, keep young minds busy with exploration and discovery.
