Absolutely the best place in town for kids. Maybe the best anywhere. Lots of hands on experiences and games for all ages. The kids will stay all day and beg to come back.

Big kids and small lose themselves in interactive displays at this children's museum. I wish there were more of these type places for children

Amazement Square is a great way to spend quality time with children. Located in downtown Lynchburg, it is conveniently located near fun restaurants, walking /biking trails and the children love it when the train rolls by.
