Don Harrington Discovery Center And Helium Monument, Amarillo Reviews
We spend a lot of time in science museums and such as we travel. I really wish more was put in to ours! While it is clean and the staff is friendly, it just isn't what it used to be. There's more to read than to actually DO and every time we go many things aren't working. We went at opening this weekend and found this to be the case once again. The wind machine card reader didn't work, several activities in the half that was open were broken, and even the theatre screen wasn't working properly . I would also suggest offering half-priced days on days that half of the building is closed to change out exhibits. They do warn you at the counter but honestly nobody wants to make a group of kids leave right when they get there . We took family that was in town with us since they hadn't been in years. We warned that they would be disappointed but they were optimistic. It didn't take long for them to change their mind. Definitely not worth the money any more.
Good for kids over 3. There are a few things for babies to do, would like to see some more visual or color and pattern displays that would be attractive to babies. There is a safe baby play area which is nice! Have not seen many places with a safe space for crawlers to 18 months.
A really great place to visit with kids. It's definitely a must visit
Kids enjoyed it, though it wasn't big. Membership (or in our case ASTC membership) gets you into the museum and the show. Hands on science center with free parking. The large soccer billiards table was neat.
Not very sanitary. Every time my child visits this place she always ends up with Strep Throat or just sick with RSV or the Common Cold. It is not a good place to visit regularly for I have found myself going there a lot less now that my child is 5. We started taking her when she was an infant almost weekly sometimes daily, and as the years went on it of course became super lame, and there was so many germs that are clearly inescapable. So now I do not plan on buying another year membership. I also want to mention how sad the New Years Eve event was. Only a handful of kids got a balloon if not more than one (greediness). There were at least 100 or more kids left in the back ground just to watch only a few kids enjoy the event. It was heart breaking to see how many children were disappointed that year. It was also no good to have to pay such an awful turn out.
