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.
