Support Our Future Endeavors

Go Forward Fund

The Nest

All major donations to the Go Forward Capacity Building Fund and The Nest will be recognized in Kidzu’s annual report, on the Kidzu website and on the Donor Wall in the lobby of the current museum.


Since 2006, Kidzu Children’s Museum has nurtured the creativity and confidence of thousands of area children. Kidzu Children’s Museum is a hands-on museum dedicated to inspiring young children and the adults in their lives to learn through purposeful, creative play. We are planning to expand to a much larger site in the next few years.

We need your help to continue to serve all the families in our area!

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.
