Lutz Children’s Museum
Every visit to the Lutz Children’s Museum is exciting because exhibits change frequently and special programs are offered daily. Most exhibits and activities are designed for children aged two through ten. The museum’s home is a former schoolhouse. Gallery halls were once classrooms, and the school auditorium is now used for classes, parties, concerts and special events. Downtown Manchester and the historical district are right down the road.
Old Sturbridge Village
Several times a year, Old Sturbridge Village provides opportunities for kids to get a more in-depth Village experience with two-day, three-day, and five-day programs. The educators at Old Sturbridge Village have designed the Adventures programs with specific themes and ages in mind. Every Adventure session offers kids the opportunity to explore an aspect of the Village's history and environment. All programs include an afternoon snack, hands-on crafts, and the chance to learn something new while making lasting friends and memories.
