There is very little to do here. It is a monument. You can look at it. It does have an interesting story but, the entire visit would take maybe 5 minutes.

Beautiful piece of artwork if you're not into science. Interesting facts and presentation if you have a science interest. Next door to the Don Harrington Discovery Center.

We stopped here as a quick stop on our way through Amarillo. It was a nice park to get out and walk around in, but as others have noted, there isn't much to see here. It's the equivalent to stopping at one of those roadside historic markers that you see on the interstate. It's not far off the highway, so... More

Science lovers rejoice. This free-to-see monument is a great little stop. If you have school age kids, they'll learn a bunch. If you just like nerdy monuments, you need to stop. If you have young kids, there's a park right by there so they can run around. The monument is on the grounds of a Discovery Center. The monument is... More

If you are into science, and understand the periodic table, you'll appreciate this monument. It was awesome.

We only saw this because it was next to the discovery center. It was not a big deal or very memorable for our family but perhaps others would like it.

My husand and I went to see the Helium Monument which is just outside of the Discovery Center and were fascinated by the large sundail and the fact that it is a time capsule as well. It would be a fun outing for kids and it's just outside of the children's museum so it's not that hard to get to.

In the parking lot of the Discovery Center. Just a funny looking sculpture but educational. Would not drive jut to see if but if in the area worth a read.

We really enjoyed this beautiful structure and had an interesting discussion about what might be in the time capsules. Too bad we won't be around when the last one is opened!
