Amazement Square

Imagine a museum where you can climb through the walls and touch or play with everything! Amazement Square is a hands-on museum in Lynchburg, Virginia. They believe that creative play is one of the most important ways children can grow. Guests of all ages can paint on the walls, explore life on the farm, create a rainstorm over downtown Lynchburg, float a boat down the James River, and even rock out on stage in a band of your own!

 

The encore team is excited to experience Amazement Square with you, have fun exploring!
