Amazement Square, The Rightmire Children's Museum is dedicated to motivating children and adults of all backgrounds toward greater creativity and understanding of themselves and the world through hands-on learning.

The Museum's exhibits and educational programs encourage all participants to explore the arts and humanities, culture, science, technology and their interdisciplinary relationships.

Amazement Tower, a meandering tangle of pathways, tunnels, illuminating stairs and glass elevator, connects all the Museums exhibitions, and is the tallest indoor, interactive climbing structure in the United States.
