Glazer Children's Museum Website Home



Dear Members and Friends,
We hope everyone stayed safe as Hurricane Irma passed through Florida this weekend. We will be reopening on Wednesday, September 13 in hopes that we can provide a way for kids to burn off some of that extra energy and cool off. Remember, the Museum is offering $7 admission for the rest of the month of September! Exercise and cognitive stimulation are proven to be significant stress reducers and our Playologists are ready to help the kids of Tampa Bay cope with the stress of Hurricane Irma and its aftermath! Many schools in the area are still closed yet many homes are without power- it is important that GCM can serve as an outlet for these kids to express themselves and get moving! Join us!
