It was free so I recommend that you get the library pass. The museum is very small and good mostly for children with good imagination.

Lutz has a fun collection of toys, exhibits and animals on display. The exhibits are interactive. It is a great indoor experience. That said, the outdoor playscape is not very good, and one of the picnic table benches was broken and had rusty nails exposed.
