Learn why Amarillo is the “Helium Capital of the World” at the Don Harrington Discovery Center, a hands-on children’s science center with more than 100 exhibits on natural history and core sciences. Outside the center is the helium monument, four helium-filled steel columns fitted with time capsules. The Space Theater is a digital planetarium that offers out of this world trips to our nearest neighbors in the solar system to the depths of deep space. The highly flexible digital planetarium can take you from Mars to the edge of a black hole in the wink of an eye.
