I adore the Don Harrington Discovery Center! I always loved this place as a kid, but a couple years ago we discovered their After Dark series of events - themed events for the adult geek that take place several times a year - always fun, tons of activities, music, lots of food, and open bar. The exhibits are always changing! They have the year-round displays but the main attractions change throughout the year so there is always something new to see.

Small zoo but AMAZING animals ! We where really surprised we where down for a family gathering not residents of Amarillo so we looked up what to do and this was the number one recommendations! Being able to actually see the animals up close was amazing ! We live three hours away but would make the trip just to go back ! The kids loved every minute of it.

I loved it! It was a nice part of our family weekend. I really liked the student work! There were lots of historic pieces on loan from private collections. There were 3 floors to look at. Don't miss the sculptures outside and the converted cigarette - turned - art vending machine just inside (near the donation box). ; ) I won't be able to forget the puppy mill teapot! Outside there is a sculpture I liked on the NE side, with no name, but I call it Jumping Through Hoops to be the Top Dog.
