Our family loves Kidzu. Great place to explore and let out energy. Especially on hot summer days. Definitely worth getting a membership or summer pass if you plan to go a lot. It's a little pricey otherwise but with a membership it's totally worth it. We wish it were somewhere else maybe. That old rundown mall isn't the best place... More

When my granddaughter visits, our trips to downtown ususally include a stop at the Kidzu Children's Museum. The hands on activities are so fun and each time, we discover something new.

We took our 2 1/2 year old granddaughter here and she was thrilled with the play areas, especially the restaurant and the fishing boat. She fed bones to Clifford the Big Red Dog, a special exhibit area. The place was packed on this cold Saturday morning and we understand why. It is a great place for parents of small children... More

Kidzu Children's Museum is perfect place to visit, when you are in Chapel Hill city-center with children. Free on Saturday.

I rarely write reviews but I have felt compelled to do so since leaving this place. This place is nothing short than a "pay for the day" daycare where the parents follow around their kids but much smaller. There was one semi discovery museum like contraption that puts balls through a tube an down a tunnel. This seems to be... More

At first I wasn't sure I was at the right place; it's on the back side of a strip mall, and couldn't be less museum-like in appearance. It's very small; I hope they get the funds to make it larger because my 19 month old nephew loved it. Docents were there to make suggestions, and I'm glad the toddler room... More

This is a very nice but very small kids museum. They have lots of puzzles, books, construction/building toys and a nice little kitchen cafe. My 3 year old spent a very happy 2 hours there. It is right in downtown Chapel Hill so a nice part of a day- not an all day thing. I do think they are planning... More

First of all, "museum" is a huge overstatement. There are three small rooms plus small arts-and-crafts corner and a tiny (and drafty!) area for the kids under 24 months. There was some very strong mildewy smell in the air. Some toys and decorations seemed rather worn and yucky. Fortunately, our 3 year old was happy to leave shortly after arrival... More

I took my 2 children, ages 4 and 7, here on Sunday to have some playtime and they had a blast. The place is not very big and can get crowded on Sundays since it is free but it will keep your kids busy for an hour or two. This is really good if your kids are bored from walking... More

We visited this museum on a Sunday because it is free on Sundays. I'm sure the free entrance is why the museum was so overcrowded. The exhibits and play areas were clean, colorful, and engaging for our 18 month old. The staff were friendly and informative about crafts being offered. The museum is relocating to a bigger facility in the... More
