Evening of Play

You are invited to an Evening of Play at the Glazer Children’s Museum on Friday, October 15 from 6-10pm. Play like a kid again at this adults-only event in support of your favorite non-profit children’s museum. It’s finally your turn to let loose and climb, build, and explore in our exhibits!

Games + Chance Drawing

Get ready to play with your pals like you did when you were a kid! The Museum is yours to explore and get silly, so get ready to channel your inner child who loved climbing, playing dress-up, and building forts out of blankets and pillows in our exhibits that bring back that same childhood fun and imagination. If your inner child is feeling fun and fearless, participate in our classic games with a grownup twist, and get your tickets together for a chance at winning some prize packages!


Get your pals together for 4 re-imagined childhood games. Our pay-to-play experiences ($5-$10) come with boozy and creative prizes!

Gaga Ball
It’s like dodgeball without the gym class anxiety of being picked last, phew! Hop into our gaga pit and get ready to yell GA-GA-GO! Bounce the ball around the pit and try to hit the other players below the knee. If you succeed, they’re out! The last person in the pit wins the game!

Hungry, Hungry Humans
We’re bringing this classic game to life! Grab a laundry basket, a flat scooter, and your friend’s ankles, and get to work collecting as many giant marbles as you can! The team that collects the most marbles wins the game! Goofiness and giggles guaranteed.

Parachute Play
Are you nostalgic for parachute day at school? Us too! Gather your friends and grab a handle to join in a game of parachute play. Run under the parachute to trade places with a friend before the parachute touches you! Then see how far the group can lift the balls up into the sky.

Race Up the Climber
Channel your childhood playground energy and climb through our popular Water’s Journey Climber! Find a friend and challenge them to race you to the top of the climber. The first one to ring the bell wins the game!

Pay-to Play | Hamster Wheel Boozy Sno-Cones
Get ready to take a spin! Hop on a human-sized hamster wheel and go for a little run to get the sno-cone machine going, then take your sno-cone over to the bar for a boozy shot for all your hard work.

Pay-to-Play | Rock Me Art
Remember playing MASH as a kid? Get ready for something way cooler! Let the fame, fortunate, and family pendulums design a work of art unique to you.  

Pay-to-Play | Bicycle Powered Maze
Put all your spin class sessions to good use! Simply sit on the stationary bike and use your pedal power to control how a ball moves through the maze. 

Pay-to-Play | Wine Bottle Ring Toss
See a bottle of wine that catches your eye? This is your classic game of ring toss, but instead, toss the ring onto the bottle you wish to win!
