Glazer Children's Museum is a super place to go with kids! There is so much for them to explore in this pleasant, light-filled space. Parents will also enjoy the fantastic views of downtown Tampa from the huge windows. Kids can pretend to shop and work the cash register at Publix. They can bake a pizza and serve it to parents. They can slide down a pole in the fire station to get to the fire engine. Or take care of animals in the vet clinic. 

Kids can make creations out of magnetic triangles or lincoln logs. They can launch a paper airplane through some hoops. Or look up at a giant kaleidoscope. They can move sand causing it to change color (from a projector) based on how high the mountain of sand becomes. This creates a blue sea and yellow mountains, with little crabs climbing up the hills, and fish swimming in the sea. 
To get some energy out, kids can climb the tall rope climbey area, all the way to the roof! They can play ball, rock climb, and balance on an obstable course.
Downstairs, they can play with water in a waist-high water station, and enjoy the music station. There is also a dance station on the second floor where they can rock out to different styles of music.
It's fun to walk outside after, in Curtis Hixon Park, and check out the beautiful Hillsborough River. Kids can run free down the little hills. At night this area is lit up beautifully with multi-colored changing lights. Have a refreshment in the Tampa Museum of Art Cafe with views of the minarets across the river and then go for a walk along the Tampa Riverwalk which is right here!
