I can't believe I haven't rated this yet. One of my favorite places in Lynchburg. I love going with the grands. There are several floors of amazing exhibits designed to delight youngsters (and the young at heart). Lots of hands-on activities that make learning fun. The grands particularly like the farm scene area with the mini sit-on farm equipment. They... More

I went to amazement square for the first time for a friend's daughter's birthday party. This place is super cool! Even I, as an adult, enjoyed myself. This place is truly "Fun for the Whole Family!". The birthday party rooms are really cute and the staff is well organized and knows how to entertain kids well. Tickets are reasonably priced... More

This is our favorite inside place to take the 4 kids! We have a membership and make it a priority to take the kids 1 time a week. The staff is friendly and they all know our kids and take the time to play with them! The exhibits are very well created to capture the children's minds. Very well done!... More

Whenever we visit my parents in Lynchburg, we go to Amazement Square. My now 4 year old has been going since he was 2, and he really looks forward to each visit. There's a ton to do and the staff is extremely friendly. It's also always very clean. We now take our baby, and he loves it too. My only... More

Wonderful Children's Museum with regional exhibits and lots of activity. Many families camp out for the day on week-ends and the kids have a great time.

My four grandkids ages 3 to 11 absolutely love this place. I like it too. You can turn them loose to roam the four levels and know that they are safe and can't get out as there is only one way out so you can guard the door and not worry. First trip here I tried to keep tabs on... More

We have gone here so many times and my son loves it. It is great for people with children under the age of many 9, someone older may get a little bored. But it all depend on what your child likes. I have not gone back yet to see if they have the new attraction open yet but, my son... More

This is a wonderful place to go with kids. Lots of neat things to do. They've recently updated some rooms. They do have 2 toddler areas. If you have multiple children it's my advice to take a friend to help. Especially if they are different ages and have different interest.
