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
Thank you for your visit to Kidzu and your review. As a nonprofit, Kidzu is dedicated to providing our community with interactive environments that support learning through play. In our current location we are very limited, due to space constraints, on how many areas of activity we can provide. You’ll be happy to know Kidzu is starting small but growing,... 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
I hear this place is suppose to move to a larger building, right now it is in a smaller store front. There is not a lot of room to be involved with your kids - I would reccomend Marbles first.
Fun, but for little kids. I think the age range is probably from 2-8 years old. Located on a croner of Franklin Street Kidzu is a great indoor playhouse for kids. It is surprisingly big compared to what it looks like on the out side, and has many different things to do. There is a puppet theater, were kids can... More
Kidzu is a wonderful little slice of fun for the youngest travelers. Its small size makes it a very comfortable scale for toddlers and a relaxing place to visit for parents and grandparents. Quality, not quantity!!
