ABOUT GLAZER CHILDREN’S MUSEUM
When Tampa Bay Buccaneers Owner Malcolm Glazer established the Glazer Family Foundation in 1999, he made a point of establishing charitable initiatives that would have a lasting impact on the community’s youth. In 2010, the Foundation helped create a new way for children to become lifelong learners and leaders: the Glazer Children’s Museum.
The Glazer Children’s Museum opened on September 25, 2010 along the waterfront in downtown Tampa. The 53,000 square-foot building is not just a museum, but a place with activities, games and challenges that allows children to learn in an exciting, stimulating environment. The world-class facility will host millions of children to learn about themselves, each other and the world around them through exploration and discovery.
A combination of permanent and traveling exhibits, comprehensive year-round programs and special events provide children, parents, caregivers and teachers with a rich and ever-changing atmosphere for playful learning. Kids can enjoy more than 170 unique, interactive exhibits called ‘Interactivities’ throughout 12 differently-themed areas committed to education and imagination. Children can pretend to be airplane pilots, cruise ship captains, construction workers, fire fighters, doctors and more in a safe, engaging environment.
Having established impactful partnerships with schools, nonprofit organizations and civic leaders, the Glazer Children’s Museum serves as a invaluable resource to the community. A main attraction in downtown Tampa and a destination for local residents, regional visitors and tourists, the Museum is in a class all its own.
