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!
