  • If you want to take your children out for some fun activities this is the place. It is a great location with access to an outdoor play area as well. They do children activities throughout the day. And if you get their family membership you can get free or reduced coast access to to many other science places across the US.
  • We had a great experience! Our 7 yr old grandaughter didn't want to leave after 4 hours! We adults were just as fascinated.
  • No one else has mentioned it but there is a really cool helium statue out front it was very interesting built in 1968 it has four time capsules in it..... pretty cool to see...
  • This place is awesome and the kids would probably spend a week here if they could.
  • Great place for kids to learn about science and discover new things.

Where to stay in Amarillo

Homestyle and boutique bed and breakfasts offer Texas hospitality near the downtown area. Chain hotels downtown fill up fast in the weeks prior to the rodeo, so book early to secure your desired room. Some of these hotels offer luxury suites and extra services, such as spas. Another popular option is camping in the desert to get a taste of the cowboy life.
