Tips for Families

Look For coupons on admission. Try to go on less busy days. Arrive very early for presentations to get close enough to see.

The kids were thrilled to get to see Winter, the dolphin, and learned a lot about marine life!

Tips for Families

There are times when your children will be waiting for a presentation to begin; talk about polite behavior towards others and being respectful and quiet while waiting. It would also be a great idea to talk as a family about marine life, before and after your trip. There are snacks available at the museum, but you may want to bring along some small snacks yourselves. Don't bring too many, though, as you will want to have your hands free to pet the dolphins!

Suggestions for nearby family-friendly accommodations

Tradewinds Hotel is a family-friendly hotel that is located in St. Petersburg, the next town south on the beach. They have a water-theme park and many offers for other activities that will be fun for your family. The kids will be busy all day right on the hotel grounds enjoying the pool and beach. Our kids even enjoyed playing the life-size chess game.

Suggestions for nearby family-friendly restaurants

There are several child-friendly restaurants in the vicinity. At the beach there is a large shaded outdoor playground where you could have a picnic after visiting the museum.

My Kid's Review

Our children loved the Clearwater Marine Museum and are already asking when we can return for another visit. They love Winter, and also enjoyed the pelicans, otters and other animals there. They liked how the staff included kids in their presentations and answered their questions about marine life.
