Kidzu Children's Museum is a hands-on museum dedicated to inspiring young children and the adults in their lives to learn through creative play.

We began on Franklin Street in Chapel Hill and are currently inside University Place (formerly University Mall) next to the new Silverspot Cinema.

Kidzu's primary goal has always been to develop a permanent museum of adequate size with outdoor space and room for growth to best serve the children and families of our growing community. Kidzu's Launch Pad at University Place is a taste of the kinds of exhibits and activities the museum would feature in a permanent location, as well as other exhibits, program spaces, classrooms and outdoor exhibits that would serve, celebrate and reflect the academic and cultural richness of our community.

  • Brought a 3yr old, 5yr old, and 8yr old here. They all LOVED it. The woman running the Makery was absolutely the best, super patient with the kids doing crafts and let them make lots of different things. We could have easily spent all day here. I also appreciated their sanitation and mask protocols.
  • Enjoyable experience but a bit over priced for a small location. We paid $18+ for a one-room area. It also seems a bit odd to charge for adults, when there is nothing in here for adults. But obviously an adult should accompany a minor. I would rather Over the Moon (pay for kids, not adults) or Marbles (a lot more bang for your buck). Nice space and my toddler enjoyed, just won’t be a frequent spot. Employees at the check in were very kind and professional, and it seemed like it was cleaned often!
