$12 for a Museum Outing for Four ($24 Value)

Packs of children and adults wander through the hands-on exhibits of Lutz Children’s Museum, learning about farm life in the 1800s and the history of the 1940s in carefully constructed displays. Infants under 1 year old are admitted for free.

Lutz Children’s Museum

For more than 50 years, Lutz Children’s Museum has delighted children with hands-on exhibits designed to introduce young learners to history, science, and nature. A re-creation of Main Street à la 1943—scaled for visitors aged 2–10—winds through the museum’s clean interior and displays fixtures of that time, including storefronts, a school, and an Internet café. The museum reaches back even further into time by showcasing an interactive farm from the 1800s, which invites kids to dress up as farm animals, milk an inanimate cow, and climb about in a hay loft. After exploring history and cultivating agricultural knowledge, budding young adventurers can fraternize with up to 50 live animals, such as Bounce the chinchilla, who is cared for by a trained and licensed staff of other chinchillas.

Lutz Children's Museum also hosts school-outreach programs, concerts, pedagogical special events and activities, and a nearby nature center, where beautiful trails line 52 acres of preserved woods. To combat modern meteorologists' fear of their own shadows, the museum additionally hosts the official Connecticut state groundhog.
