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.


Children of all ability levels deserve the opportunity to experience the joy of creative expression and hands-on, interactive learning. That is why in 2003 Amazement Square joined efforts with LAUREL Regional Program, a school that serves students who are severely mentally and physically handicapped, to help improve the education and recreational opportunities available to students with special needs. Through regular hands-on programming, students who participate in Everyone is Special Partnership are able to focus their creativity in new and innovative ways.
