Interactive education and great fun for children of all ages! Took our 14-month old granddaughter when in town to visit and she loved it. It will be a must-do location every time she's here!

Four floors of activities for kids. A zip line. a tunnel which runs on all floors. A room you can paint on the walls. This place was awesome. Our niece loved it. This is the best one we've taken her too.

We love spending time at Amazement Square. It gives us an opportunity to explore, touch and learn. Each exhibit allows us to learn new words and gain a new understanding of the world around us.
