Celebrate the holidays at Glazer Children’s Museum with a gingerbread-inspired winter wonderland. In Gingerbread Village, guests can build gingerbread houses made out of recycled materials like cardboard, pipe cleaners, bottle caps, and more.
Visitors can add their sweet construction to GCM’s village. This community creation will grow day-by-day as more folks pass through. You can also take your holiday project home with you (we understand if you grow too attached to your masterpiece). Gingerbread Village is included in museum admission.
Last year, a group of architecture, engineering, and construction firms were asked to create iconic Tampa Bay buildings using recycled materials to include in the ever-growing village. An album by BDG Architects showcases cardboard interpretations of the historic Plant Hall at the University of Tampa (Ellison Construction), the new St. Pete Pier (BDG Architects), and The Floridan Hotel (Ryan Companies).
Those interested in visiting Glazer Children’s Museum can reserve tickets online.
