  • Both of my kids (ages 6 and 3) love Amazement Square--we got 1-2 times/week all year round. The exhibits change frequently, but there are some tried and true favorites, like the paint room, which both...  read more »
  • Great place to take children or grandchildren during inclement weather. Also, they have numerous activities for families. 
  • This is the standard by which other kid's activities should be measured. The best children's museum we've ever visited. 
  • Award winning children's museum next to the James River in Downtown Lynchburg, Virginia. The childrens' parties there are engaging, full of history, science and lots of interactive stimulation for young minds. France Perretti is the Birthday Coordinator for scheduling your next event a for your little one's special event. She has a degree from Lynchburg College in Early Child Education and is also Licensed Teacher from the Commonwealth of Virginia. Clients love how Frances can take a special request to customize your loved ones special day!
  • Can not believe some of the reviews: "no food inside..plan ahead." The place is not a restaurant and you should always plan ahead..even if you are at home you shoudl plan ahead; why would someone write this in a review about a place doesn't pretend to be a food court? A jewel; a great place for kids and families. BUT..plan ahead...about food and restrooms? Maybe you folks should plan ahead and stay at home?
  • Fantastic place to take your kids with all kinds of activities and games, and interactive displays. As one bad review mentioned, not really a place to take someone with a wheelchair or who has issues with mobility, as there are a ton of stairs and levels to navigate. If you just have an active child, this is a bonus though, with a jungle gym in the center that goes up and down through the levels and at the top has a view of the whole river area. It's semi-expensive, but worth it. The staff is a bit aloof and non-present, I'd like to see a little more staff that can not only help kids, but also chill them out a bit, usually there are birthday parties going on and many kids roam free throughout the building running and yelling, etc. Not a huge deal, but it can get a little grating with so many kids being unsupervised and hitting and slamming various objects from the interactive stations, which is distracting for kids actually using the items. Overall though, a must see for kids, and very unique for this area.
  • Highly recommend this place. We have had a membership for 3 or 4 years now. Kids learn from the exhibits, staff takes the time to engage the kids, etc etc etc!
  • Good place for kids. One of the better places in Lynchburg for the little ones to run around and explore while learning at the same time. The top floor has a hidden loft that leads to a neat view of the James River and the active train tracks below. Be forewarned, they have nowhere to park a stroller inside or outside. Also, there is no food inside, so plan ahead. Overall, highly recommended.
