We arrived not long after they opened, and really had the museum to ourselves until about 11--by the time we left it was packed and there were no parking spots. We (two adults) enjoyed the museum a lot--plenty to see and do for all ages. The park nearby is gorgeous--we came back with our dog and spent a few hours... More

We always enjoy visiting the Denver Museum of Nature & Science and our visit yesterday was no exception. We specifically wanted to see the Konovalenko exhibition (Gem Carvings of Russian Folk Life) and it was very interesting but there is much more to see in this excellent museum (Egyptian mummies, prehistoric artifacts, mineral/gem, Indian cultural & wildlife exhibits, and some...

This place is a little expensive, but they do offer free days. The IMAX is a huge screen with great shows. There is everything from fossils to mummies!

Science museums are not necessarily my thing, but this one is a winner. The exhibits range from minerals and gems to mummies, from health to animals in their natural settings. THe museum is filled with interactive activities and the information presented is interesting and clear. HOurs could be spent here, and witnessing the excitement and involvement of tHe children attested... More

Celebrating my BFF's 42nd birthday in the most unique way. We did an elf scavenger hunt. There are small elves hidden within the dioramas throughout the exhibits. Some know where they all are. It was amazingly fun! The exhibits are jammed packed with a multi-sensory display of history, nature, and science. There are popular ones (e.g. Discovery Zone) that get... More

This was a great museum and anyone of any age could enjoy it. I went by myself and walked around for the afternoon, had lunch in cafe, and really had a great day. There was a mummy exhibit that I really enjoyed, it cost extra but was worth it! I also loved the gem exhibit, and everyone that worked there... More

Went here Tues.,2/14/17. Fabulous place to go back in time! The Museum is clean, so so informative on animals, prehistoric dino's, lots of exhibits for kids too. You just have to go. It's amazing. Visitors to Colorado MUST see this as many of the Dino bones are from here. This is a 5 star place to visit!

Visited last Saturday with my 9 year old and after 6 hours she still didn't want to leave. Her favorites were the rock and mineral and body exhibits, but she also spent 20 min watching the archeologist in the dinosaur exhibit. He was so nice and explained everything to her, which really impressed me. I loved the Egyptian section. One... More

We have very young kids, but they just loved this museum. There is a discovery area in the back (I think 2nd floor?) that almost seems like a secret as there is no description or advertisement of what it is. There are several interactive rooms with sand box dino digs, a building block area, a water display, an arts area,... More
