On the first Tuesday of each month, the Glazer Children Museum offers $2 Tuesdays sponsored by Target from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. Where visiting the museum could be considered a luxury spending for some, this generous community outreach program helps make a fun afternoon affordable for families experiencing financial hardships.
By the length of the queue to enter the museum on $2 Tuesdays, it is apparent that many families certainly appreciate the reduced admission for the Glazer Children’s Museum. I highly recommend arriving early to avoid a long wait.
For this month’s visit, my SIL, our children and I played in the fountains at Curtis Hixon Park to pass the time while waiting in line. One adult stayed with the children while the other held our spot in line. It was a very clever and refreshing plan!
Once inside, guests can experience all the hands-on exhibits just as any other day at the museum and more.
My children love the water play of Kids Port and Gasparilla Island with its sandy-colored rubber crumbles instead of your typical beach sand. It pours and piles just like regular sand as the children discovered and attempted to bury me alive.
Shopping is a pleasure at the Publix Super Market, but especially for my little one as he pushed his shopping cart around like a Lightning McQueen circling the track.
And the tunnel in the tot spot was almost as much fun.
My family and I love the Gazer Children’s Museum so much that we plan to visit more often than the first Tuesday of each month. Therefore, as a belated birthday present to my children, I purchased a family membership. Now with our annual family membership, we can enjoy the museum more regularly and other children’s museums in their reciprocal program.
And that’s a great thing, because the museum is as much fun as it is tasty.
