We are visiting family in central Virginia for Thanksgiving. Today we went to @amazementsquare in Lynchburg. It's a hands on kids playspace spread over four floors of an old building in downtown Lynchburg. There's a climbing structure connecting the floors for kids 5 and up and light up stairs for the rest of us (elevator is also available). Auggie loved the bees, the farm, the music studio, the physics play area (golf balls go on a roller coaster, a ski jump and more), the James River model with working locks, and the Native American exhibit. I really appreciate the way the Native American exhibit talked about the Monocan culture native to this area, and distinguished them from the Lakota and Pueblo people. They showed traditional homes and culturally significant items for each of these cultures. The exhibit explains that there were/are many tribes in North America, each with their own language and traditions. We spent about three hours here, and it was really fun with plenty of moving around and experimenting.
