I’ll be at the Glazer Children’s Museum’s Birthday Bash this Saturday, September 25th! (There may even be an accordion performance or two.)
What’s the Glazer Children’s Museum?
The Glazer Children’s Museum is Tampa’s children’s museum, located in downtown Tampa. It’s the home of a lot of interactive exhibits, hands-on activities, and space to run around, climb, read, and make friends.
Children’s museums are important. They provide a place to learn and explore interests through hands-on experiences and activities. When you’re young, nothing expands your mind like interactivity that engages all the senses, and that’s something that children’s museums do very, very well.
The Glazer Children’s Museum’s mission is to serve the children of Tampa Bay by providing a clean, safe, and fun outlet for imagination and discovery.
What’s the Glazer Children’s Museum’s Birthday Bash?
