Unfortunately, tours are only done two days a week and only four are allowed at one time. However, this was a wonderful, up close tour of the prominent Harrington family's home. The Harrington's fingerprints are everywhere in the Amarillo area, as well as New York.

There's nothing "can't miss" about this place, but if you live in the Texas Panhandle, your life has been affected by the lives of Don and Sybil Harrington, and it's interesting to see how they lived. And the holiday decorations add a nice touch too.

Touring the Harrington House is an incredible treat. Tours are free, but you have to call ahead to schedule your tour (they are only available on Tuesdays and Thursdays at specific times) for up to four people, and the minimum age is 14. You have to be careful not to touch anything to help with preservation, but it is like... More

Tours aren't given very often and are limited in number. Well worth finding the time to visit. We were glad we visited here first then recognized the Harrington name the Plains museum. Fantastic that the house is exactly how they lived and the people they knew. Free too

First it is only open Tuesday and Thursday by appointment, tours are conducted on the half hour, between 10 and 12:30, So to not be disappointed, call in advance to reserve your tour. The tour guides are all volunteers and do a wonderful job of showing and explaining the home. They will not talk about the family so don't ask.... More

The free 50-minute tour, offered on Tuesdays and Thursdays, has to be pre-arranged by phone. The tour guide offered many details about the home and its owners. The home is fully furnished with many original items.

The house is beautifully preserved and the displays are stunning and include art and collectives from all over the world. The tour guides are passionate, friendly and impressively knowledgeable. However, be aware, this is museum is private, not... More

The Harrington House is a private museum in the former home of Don and Sybil Harrington. The house exhibits the success achieved by this family, not just from the oil and gas industry, but their deep involvement with the ars and other extremely worthy causes. The mentors have a remarkable knowledge about almost every aspect of the home, its furninshings,... More
