So kids, get ready to be engaged, inspired, and excited as you enjoy this interesting and fun family day out experience in Amarillo!
The Don Harrington Discovery Center offers sixty different permanent exhibits and traveling exhibitions where visitors of all ages to experiment, explore, create, tinker, play, solve, and discover the world with their own hands.
Sounds pretty fun to us!
Kids can explore over 8,000 sq ft of hands-on fun from not only the permanent collection but national and international travelling experiences too. They chance every spring, fall and summer, ensuring that when you head back, you'll find something else to enjoy!
The permanent exhibits allow kids to explore the wonders of space, and the weather conditions on Earth and beyond. For those younger scientists, Kinderstudio is where kids up to 6 years can enjoy interactive and imaginative play with the climbing structure, tumbling space, performance space and more!
As for the seasonal exhibits, you might soar to new heights as you explore the history of aviation, where you can be inspired by all kinds of in-flight science.
Kids might take a tour of the "giants" of space, learn about science from a simple sphere or take on the imagination playground.
