Looking for less busy times to visit the museum? The middle of the day (11:30am-2:30pm) during the week are some of our quietest times to visit. No large field trips are ever held on Tuesdays, Thursdays or Fridays. *Kidzu may occasionally open late Wednesday mornings to accommodate larger field trips. Please check our calendar before planning your visit.

Before You Visit

Kidzu provides a social narrative, a short story written from a child’s perspective, to help prepare you and your child for your visit to the museum.  The social narrative can be downloaded and printed here before your visit or copies are available at the front desk. Thanks so much to TEACCH for their guidance in developing this program.
