As a 501c3 nonprofit organization, the Glazer Children’s Museum relies on private donations to maintain a quality educational experience for all children. While admission and special program revenue supports 60% of Museum operations, the remaining 40% must be made up through generous individuals, corporations, and foundations committed to maintaining our award winning children’s museum in Tampa Bay. Your generosity enables the Museum to provide children of all backgrounds and abilities with quality learning experiences that foster curiosity, spark imagination, encourage exploration, and promote lifelong learning.
At the Glazer Children’s Museum, every child belongs! Through various outreach programs, the Museum has something for everyone.
- The Sunshine Sunday program allows exclusive access to children and their families with special needs.
- The Title 1 School Partnership Program ensures that all Title 1 elementary students can visit the Museum and enjoy all educational programs at no cost to them.
- Children’s Board Free Tuesday allows families a chance to enjoy the Museum at no charge, one day per month.
