TAMPA, Fla. — Tampa’s interactive, learning laboratory museum just reached 2 million visitors.
Hitting a milestone is the best feeling ever and the Glazer Children’s Museum in Downtown Tampa feels just that.
“There's a group of us who remember opening this building is staying here when it was completely empty the very first day,” CEO and President Sarah Cole said. “I don't think any of us imagine two million would ever come across so we're excited.”
The museum staff surprised the guests by greeting them with cheers, balloons and a welcome parade around the museum.
“What’s been so fantastic is really we said, ‘Hey team, we’re about to have 2 million people. We should do something fun! What would that be?’” Cole said.
Cole said that her favorite part about the job is the staff.
“I will say my favorite thing is honestly the staff here,” Cole said. “They are so focused on children they're so focused on family and creating a joyful and playful space for children to come to and it's amazing.”
The 2 millionth guest also received a 1-year membership to the museum.
The Glazer Children’s Museum also just celebrated its 9th birthday on September 28. They continue to grow with the community.
