Why Support Kidzu?
With a focus on STEM education, the arts, child health and emerging literacy, Kidzu Children’s Museum inspires children and the adults in their lives to learn through creative, purposeful play.
Kidzu’s vision is to be a national model of excellence as a community-centered children’s museum. That is, to effectively serve, celebrate and reflect the community through unique, place-based experiential exhibits and programs that promote 21st century skill-building and family engagement.
At Kidzu —make, build, explore and learn— an adventurous expanded Museum experience for ages infant to tween. Kidzu’s new 8,500 square foot space is multi-sensory, play-centered, and focused on providing area children and their families, teachers, and caregivers an ever-changing menu of exhibits and programs that inspire creativity, collaboration and community.
Equity and Inclusion
As children develop their own identities, they become more conscious of differences among others. Purposeful and engaging activities help children learn how to recognize and talk about these differences openly and without judgement.
