Kidzu Children’s Museum in Chapel Hill celebrated its 11th birthday on Sunday.

The museum has been an important part of the Chapel Hill community for more than a decade.

The anniversary was celebrated with a cake cutting and candle blowing party, and throughout the day they had multicultural story time and live music.

Elisabeth Suttee, manager at Kidzu, said she likes that the museum is a part of the surrounding community.

“We are the only kids’ museum in Chapel Hill and Carrboro and for the past 11 years we have been happy to provide a community space try to be inclusive to the different communities around here,” Suttee said.

Suttee also discussed the future of the museum.

“The ultimate goal is to have a free standing space of our own ... I think that would be the best way to maximize the museum as a community space, but I think for right now we really appreciate being a part of the University Place community, I think we are in a great location,” Suttee said, “I love the exhibit we have and I hope we don’t change anything too soon.”
