What is there to do?

Located in a former school house, the Lutz Children's Museum is ALL about giving kids a fun, playful and educational day out!

All of the exhibits have been designed to allow kids to explore history, culture, and the sciences, and what's also fun is that the exhibits change frequently, so there might be something new with every visit!

Geared towards kids aged 2 to 10 years, one day your visit might transport you back in time to the 1940s, with Roosevelt in the White House and Glen Miller on the radio. Kids can use those imaginations as they shop, attend school and explore their home during the war years. 

On another visit, it might be the farm that catches the children's eyes! Connecticut has a rich farming history, and kids could experience visiting a local farm. The difference? You're in the 1800s!

Also at Lutz Children's Museum are live animals! Yes kids, you heard that right. The staff are trained and licensed to care for injured wildlife, so kids can learn all about the rescue and rehabilitation process. An invaluable lesson!

Even when you arrive your experience will begin, with the hallway displaying their extensive collection of artifacts.

A playful, educational, historic and creative day out for kids under 10 years at Lutz Children's Museum. So let's go kids, the fun is waiting for you!
