This was one of my first stops in town and it was a wonderful way to spend the day. I saw a movie both at the planetarium and the 3-d theater and both were super great. There were many very interesting exhibits and it wasn't too crowded during the week.

The last time I visited I was about 25+ years younger and I was very pleased to know that this place was just as awesome today as it was then!! The exhibits kept everyone in our family engaged from us old peeps, to the teens to our 9 year old. I was shocked at the number of museum guides ready... More

Good on cold boring days...and nice days. They get top notch exhibits rolling through constantly, and they have an imax that plays awesome educational movies.

As a retired Science teacher, I expect a lot in a facility of this type, and the DMNS doesn't disappoint! This is an excellent, well funded and maintained facility, and there's almost always something new.

A great museum for adults & kids. Check out the planetarium. The dinosaur exhibit is really good, especially since Colorado is a hot bed for fossils.

Lots of parking, just find the underground area. The exhibits are both local and world wide. There is usually a feature exhibit that is with the museum for a month or so. The cafeteria had decent enough food. There are lockers. There is an IMax with several options. The exhibits are similar to the American Museum of Natural History in... More

We loved the science exhibit with ability to see your own cells under a microscope. There are many exhibits with lots of interaction. Our 6 year old wants to go back asap!

For Spring Break we took a trip to the museum to see Mythical Creatures and The Silk Road. The creatures exhibit was fascinating for children. The displays were colorful and had interesting explanations. The only problem was that because of the popularity it was crowded. The Silk Road was fascinating for adults and children. We loved seeing the silk worms... More

This was our first visit to the museum after moving to the Denver area, and won't be our last. Unfortunately, our visit coincided with several grade-school field trips, plus school vacation week, so the museum was overrun with kids, and it was hard to view and enjoy some of the exhibits. So that's the negative part. If you want to... More

The DMNS is Denver's premier science and nature museum. It's a must-see for anyone visiting the city. We take our children and grandson at least once a year to enjoy the science exhibits and planetarium.
