This was an interesting point of interest. The legs (columns) of the structure were filles with books and historic items to let people of the future see what it was like to live in 1968. It is basically a huge multi compartment Time Capsule.

This monument is not at the spot where helium was discovered. The monument is outside the Discovery Center. Not the same....

If you like quirky art combined with science, then this exhibit is for you. It's located on the grounds of the Harrington Discovery Center and should definitely be visited during your visit to the museum.

I didn't know that Amarillo was the helium capital of the world. Fun trivia and interesting monument. Worth stopping by to see and snap a few photos.
