Amazement Square - The Rightmire Children's Museum
Amazement Square is Central Virginia's first multidisciplinary, hands-on children's museum! Climb, slide and discover as you make your way through four floors of exciting, interactive exhibits, activities and programs.
Visitors of all ages, backgrounds and abilities can explore global and regional topics, the arts and humanities, science and health-related themes, as well as expand their creativity.
Such a cool place for kids! My toddler had a blast & we'll definitely be back. It's a little pricey, but the membership looks like a good option if you're planning to go a few times a year. I like that there are so many options for different ages & it provides very hands-on learning.
We have been taking our little one here since she was 1 year old. Our father-in-law always buys us passes so we never have to pay to get in. There is so much for kids of all ages to do here. Our little one really enjoys the pirate ship area which is for toddlers/babies. There is a big light bright underneath the ship that she will play with for a long time. The area with the golf balls that go down different tracks is also a lot of fun. There are slides and play areas, a water area, painting, dress up, music, and so much more. It is really nice to have it right here in Lynchburg.
I had been before and was not looking forward to going back this time. I attended a birthday party. I can say, I had a good time as well as my son. He was not ready to leave. Staff was very nice. I now look forward to coming back.
There was plenty to do for all ages. Loved the activities (especially the farm theme & the James River) However, I did find that there were unsupervised children using the elevator (older children were using the facility/elevator as their own social club). Many running & hitting each other with the big blocks in the "building" area. Seemed under staffed. But we still had fun.😊
This place was great! Very fun and interactive experience for kids and even the adults of those kids! My children and I had a blast exploring all four floors of Amazement Square all we'll definitely be going back to do it again!
