A great visit. One of the most comprehensive natural history museums we’ve been to, outside of DC. The numerous animal displays were extremely impressive, as was the Coors rocks, mineral and gemstone collection. This is a very large museum, and on a crowded weekend it...More

You can literally go to this museum every weekend with the kids. From fossils and dinosaurs to hands on activities, the kids will absolutely love it. The food is "ok" but I would have rather taken a few sandwiches. I would definitely go for the...More

The Denver Museum is one of the best in the country. Since many of the dinosaur skeletons were discovered in Colorado it offers tremendous variety and items that you would not see in anything but the biggest museums. If you have children between the ages...More

The museum is fantastic. The children's section has interactive water, a dig zone, small kids climbing, building, and museum staff that tell stories, beat on bongos, and tons of other activities. In the space gallery they have a observatory show just for kids. There was...More

Went for the Dior Exhibit and it was beautiful. The displays were set up stunningly and was breath taking. A little disappointed in the other exhibits, but it was still a great experience. Gift shop was way overpriced...

We appreciate you sharing your feedback but the Dior exhibit is at the Denver Art Museum and not the Denver Museum of Nature & Science. We hope you get a chance to visit our Museum in the future!

This museum is geared towards children but it is great for all ages. The exhibits are varied and interesting, and the Imax show was fantastic. Next time I'm in Denver, I'll be going again!

I do not believe there are audio guides. There are many workers available and exhibits have good explanations--in English and Spanish. I don't think in French.

Benny's at 7th and Grant - vibrant atmosphere. Traditional Tex-Mex fare. Nothing fancy about this place, just good food!

The Ramada Denver Downtown is within 2 miles of the museum, there is also a Days Inn Denver Downtown that is even closer - a little over a mile away.
