The New and Improved Kidzu

What it is:  We've already told you about Kidzu before, the great children's museum in Chapel Hill full of hands-on fun for kids to explore. However, several months ago, Kidzu closed to begin construction on their new larger location.  This past weekend, they finally opened up their temporary location in University Square shopping area on Franklin St., and we are thrilled that they are back! 

Basically, Kidzu has most of the same exhibits that they had before from the blocks to the large kitchen area.  So, check out our previous post for all of the details on what they have.  There were several new additions including a row of animal puppets along the wall, a farm area, and and expanded drawing and art area.

What we liked:  We love the fact that Kidzu is back!  It's always a great rainy day or any day option.  I also liked that the area for younger kids was physically separated from the rest of the museum, so the older kids wouldn't be as tempted to join in on their fun!

What we would change: With the large windows on one side, we felt like it got a bit hot in the museum.  However, the windows did bring in a lot of brightness.
