Support Kidzu Children’s Museum

Since 2006, Kidzu Children’s Museum has nurtured the creativity and confidence of thousands of area children. Throughout these months of uncertainty, Kidzu has continued to provide activities, programs, and resources for children and families throughout our community via our Kidzu@Home webpages.
The health and well-being of our visitors, our staff, and our families continue to be our top priority. As of November 4, 2020, we will begin welcoming families back to the museum, under strict safety and health protocols, with a staff eager and ready to engage in what is sure to be restorative play.
We are counting on donations from friends like you who understand the important role Kidzu plays in the lives of so many children. This has been a challenging time for everyone. We hope you’ll consider making a contribution to help Kidzu provide access to play and educational activities for our community. Your donation is a gift that goes beyond Kidzu’s doors. Thank you for your participation.

Children from infants to tweens engage in imaginative, open-ended play experiences combined with learning objectives.

The Arts
Kidzu was designed with artwork from local and regional artists. Those same artists and more collaborate with Kidzu visitors on a weekly basis through programs included with admission.
All of our exhibits incorporate books and have literature related to each exhibit area. Burrow in, share a good read, and enjoy storytimes in both English and Spanish.
Kidzu incorporates Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math components into exhibits and programs. Visitors of all ages can craft with real materials, tinker with real tools and explore new technologies as they create a wealth of creative projects.
Child Health and Wellness
Museum exhibits bring the concepts of gardening to life and celebrate local food and the farm to fork cycle. Gross motor skills are tested giving visitors the opportunity to jump, climb, and stretch.

  • Great place to bring the kids to play. Lots of things to do. The Makery is a space to let your little artist/builders imagination soar! Staff are super helpful and nice. Recommend coming to check it out yourself. You and the kids will not be disappointed.

  • I went with my 7 & 6 year old cousins because it was a rainy day and once we entered they did not want to leave! There are tons of activities for children to do and lots of imaginative play. It was clean and had a lovely staff.

  • They pack a lot of fun into a small space. They have a nice array of different exhibits with a tree house, theater space, kitchen, reading nook, makery, etc. My 5 year old son loved it.

  • What a great time! We took our granddaughters here. Both of them had a great time. They were wore out by the time we left. We will go back in the near future, when we catch our breath.
