By: Dalia Colon


For a lot of us, the holidays mean ample free time but not-so-ample cash. So here are three museums in Tampa where you can entertain the fam without blowing your holiday budget.


The museum: Glazer Children’s Museum

The offer: The first Tuesday of every month is Target Tuesday, when all guests get free admission from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m.

The savings: Regular admission costs $15 for adults and $9.50 for kids ages 1 and up.


The museum: Tampa Museum of Art

The offer: Art on the House brings “pay-as-you-will” admission every Friday from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m.

The savings: Regular admission costs $10 for adults.


The museum: MOSI (Museum of Science and Industry)

The offer: On PwC Math Mondays, PricewaterhouseCoopers picks up the tab for everyone all day. Guests are free to explore the museum’s Financial Literacy Learning Stations and other general-admission exhibits. Additional fees apply for IMAX films, Sky Trail Ropes Course and Sky Trail Zip Line. Parking costs $5 per vehicle.

The savings: General-admission tickets cost $21.95 for adults and $17.95 for kids ages 2 to 12.
