Lutz Children's Museum

Go bug hunting and bird searching on the fifty-two acre nature preserve or visit the Main Street exhibit where students can step right into the 1940’s as they listen to Glen Miller on the radio, shop in wartime stores and go to school in the swinging era.

Group tours for grades K-5th merge exciting art and nature-based exploration in programs like Boogle Bones, Lost of Legs, and Wildlife Artists.
