Plenty of dioramas laid out beautifully. The number of animal taxidermies was incredible. The best part was the geology section. It was beautiful and fascinating. Food was okay, but there were lots of choices. Not very easy to get to from downtown if on foot though.

Overall we had a great day. There was so much to see, and we seen it all, took about 6 1/2 hours to see everything. Food was very good and fairly cheap. Gift shops had so much stuff you could buy and very reasonable prices. Only reason it got a 4 was we were a little disappointed in a few... More

It's always a great day at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science. As a grandparent we have an annual membership so I can bring all my grandchildren. Ever changing, there's always something new and of course, extremely educational. Great place for the entire family! We have lunch in the cafeteria as additional support.

I took my wife and son to this place and was truly amazed by the amount of exhibits that was inside. We learned so much and found this to be one of the best museums that we have gone to. I would highly recommend this to anyone.

Always buy the membership when you are visiting this museum. It worth it because you can use it at other museums around the country. It is a nice place to go if you have children. If you don't have kids try going on a less crowded day. It's worth the price of admission. Also you will have to pay for... More

What a fun place to visit! We were there 3 hours & did not see everything. Volunteers are all over to explain the exhibits, & it was as much fun for me as it was for my 8 year old granddaughter. She wants to go back again, & see the IMAX movie, & planetarium. It is a great place to... More

Visited with a 10,13, and 14 yr olds. Everyone was very pleased. Lots of camp groups on our visit. There was lots to see and do. We had the most fun and experience in the Health Expedition area. I would recommend getting the Mile High Culture pass to save money.

We have been to the Museum before. We always love it and look forward to the special exhibits. This year we were a little disappointed with the mythical creatures special exhibit. We were glad that it was a free special exhibit because we felt it was lacking in being really filled out. We really enjoyed the dinosaurs and the gems... More

It was longer than we thought. 5 Hours to be exact. Could have been longer, if wanted. This Museum without a doubt, was one of the finest we had the pleasure of going to. No exception. It was not just Paintings of all types but Masterpieces. Marble statues etc. all 5 Flores. Be prepared to stay the day if you... More
