For over 30 years, Great Explorations has been Tampa Bay’s preeminent children’s museum supporting practical learning applications through a proven creative curriculum. Our mission remains focused on stimulating learning through creativity, play and exploration.
As the nation’s first children’s museum to open a licensed preschool, we are proud to stimulate curiosity and provide enrichment through a carefully curated hands-on learning environment.
WE STAND FOR:
Empowerment of expressive learning • Innovation through collaborative play • Passion for fostering growth
Great Explorations is the first mid-size children’s museum in the country to achieve AAM accreditation. The museum joins the ranks of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Salvador Dali Museum, Museum of Fine Arts, and Indianapolis Children’s Museum.
