Teacher Advisory Committee

Amazement Square strives to be a valuable resource to teachers in Central Virginia. Teachers are invited to participate in our Teacher Advisory Committee to help the museum in developing and evaluating educational programs and exhibits.

Please contact the Education Team if you are interested in participating in the next Teacher Advisory Committee meeting.

Sponsored Admission Program

Sponsored Admission scholarship funds are available for schools with 50% or more of students on free and/or reduced lunch. Scholarship funds for reduced admission are limited and distributed on a first-come, first-served basis. For questions about sponsored admission for schools and to find out if your classroom qualifies, please contact education@amazementsquare.org.

The Sponsored Admission Program was established to help the museum fulfill its mission to be accessible to ALL community members. Learn more about Amazement Square’s other Sponsored Admission Programs.

 The Sponsored Admission Program is made possible by an endowment established by Ms. Mary Lenker, Yuille Holt, Jr. Family, and Lea and Andy Larsen
