What is Kidzeum? 

Kidzeum is a children's museum, located in historic downtown Springfield, IL, that opened on July 21, 2018. It is a children's museum dedicated to the idea that kids learn best while at play. 

So come have fun, and learn about health and science at the same time!

What is the recommended age range for Kidzeum?

We have found that the age range which provides the best experience at Kidzeum is 2 to 12. 

Kids older than 12 are still able to have a great experience, especially when they get to interact and engage with younger siblings or family members. 

Is there food available?

No, Kidzeum does not sell any food.

We do however have a lunch room space, so feel free to bring food from home or run across the street to Cafe Moxo and grab a pot pie or a buttercream cookie! 

We do also sell drinks out of the vending machines in our lunchroom!

Can I have a birthday party at Kidzeum?

Yes! Kidzeum has three different spaces that can host parties ranging in size from 15 persons to 40 persons. Parties larger than 40 would require facility rental.
