Kidzeum’s One Year Birthday Bash!

Mark your calendars! Kidzeum is turning one-year-old! You’re invited to join us as we celebrate with lots of fun activities all day long, including live zoo animals, messy science, a professional beekeeper and so much more! Members receive early access at 9am.

Thanks to a generous sponsorship from Memorial Health System, Kidzeum will be offering 1/2 off general admission all day!

The celebration will span across all three floors of Kidzeum and outdoors in the courtyard, near the museum entrance. It will include several family-friendly activities, including live zoo animals from the Henson Robinson Zoo, hands-on messy art and science, a performance by Springfield Dance and a special viewing of the lunar landing. Other local organizations involved in the festivities will include Scheels, Fit4Mom, Springfield Pediatric Dentistry, the MG Nelson Foundation and Acbees Apiaries.

From 11 a.m. to 12 p.m., Kidzeum will host an exclusive party for children who have celebrated their birthdays at the museum since its grand opening. The birthday kids will receive free admission, a special story time with Leonard Shanklin and birthday cupcakes, among other fun museum giveaways.

Hy-Vee will be on-site from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. selling food to event attendees. The birthday celebration will be in conjunction with the Old Capitol Farmers Market’s “Kids Day at the Market,” which will take place from 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. along East Adams Street. Other “Adams Family” local businesses along East Adams Street in downtown Springfield will also be offering exclusive deals during the event.
