Lots to see

I learned a lot coming here on our vacation getaway. It was a lot of fun! Just difficult to get around when there's a lot of unruly kids. But it's a museum what can you do lol.

This museum is our family favorite! Every time we visit Denver we make a day of the museum. From dinosaurs, to mummies, to animal exhibits, and so much more, this large, inviting museum has it all! If you are curious about space, you could spend an entire day exploring that area alone. If you want to take a journey back... More

I visited the Denver Museum of Nature & Science with family members who live in the Denver area. We had teens and younger kids in our group and this museum entertained us all. My six-year-old niece loves the Expedition Health exhibit and was thrilled to take us through the interactive and informative stations. Very worthwhile! We also enjoyed the gems... More

This place was awesome. My 2 year old son had a blast in the space and the Jurassic sections. So much to see and do here.

I visited the museum 60 years ago. My folks said I called it Dinosaur graveyard. I took my children 25 years ago and they called it Dinosaur Theatre. When my son was in high school in the early 2000's his best friend did all the programing for the planetarium programs.. The museum remains dynamic and current. It is not old... More

You can never go wrong with a visit to the Museum of Nature and Science! I have loved coming here since I was a kid. Always enjoy the special exhibits and Health zone. A little known fact and game you can play is "Find the Gnomes" in the dioramas. The artist who painted the dioramas painted Gnomes in some of... More

We actually went during a special dinosaur exhibit a couple years ago. That exhibit along with the mummy exhibit as well as all the permanent exhibits were all fantastic. A person really should go there 2 or 3 days to soak it all in, there's just so much! Well worth the time and money.

The Gems and Minerals exhibit is our favorite. We have a membership here and go at least once a month. It's a great place to stay warm in the winter and beat the heat in the summer. Kids especially love the space exhibit. The food at the T-Rex cafe is mediocre and quite expensive so you're better off bringing your... More
