Don Harrington Discovery Center

1200 Streit Dr, Harrington Regional Medical Center, Amarillo, TX

This small science center is a great place for the kids to explore space, music and even physics through interactive exhibits. The Imaginations Playground will have kids building giant structures with the giant foam blocks of all shapes and sizes. A few reptiles are on display and traveling exhibits such as “Wild Music,” where kids become musicians and can discover nature’s “musicians” too, are always making an appearance.

The Kinderstudio is great for younger kids under 6 years old with a climbing area and tumbling space, along with foam blocks and a performance stage for kids who want to get creative. Make sure to stop at the Space Theater too (included with admission, scheduled one time daily) and see the planets and stars on a galaxy voyage.

Families could easily spend a few hours here exploring!

Things to Know/Bring: Children under 2 years old are free. Situated outside the center is a large park with a playground, walking trail and pond for fishing. Amarillo Botanical Gardens is located a few steps away.
