Are your kids in town to visit? Looking for something fun to do in Tampa on your day off with them? I recommend the Glazier Children’s Museum in downtown Tampa. Their website address is http://glazermuseum.org/
. This is a fun outing for kids of all ages there is so many stimulating things to do there. I have a 3 year old son Dax and this is one of his favorite activities for us to do on my off days with him.
The museum itself is “filled with over 170 fun and challenging ‘interactivities’ in 12 themed areas, there’s so much to explore, discover and do! The kids can Pilot a cruise ship. Build a noodle sculpture. Design a city. Fly an airplane. Paint with light. Slide down a fireman’s pole….” One of Daxton’s favorite activities is the fireman’s pole and the "my house your house" theatre.
It’s a great place to get in the interactive quality time with your kids. Dax runs from one exhibit to another and everything is “hands on.” I’m surprised at the things that he learns when we go, and the questions that he asks, and the resulting conversations that come about.
There is a snack bar on the premises if you get hungry and next door to the museum is a grassy patch along the water for picnics and running around with the kids and water fountains if you want to bring their swimsuits to get wet. Below is the admission info and hours, days, and parking information. Have a ball!
