My children are 14, 11, and 6. They loved everything! We did the planetarium show about the solar system. Very informative and entertaining. Went to IMAX and the lady recommended the lemur monkies for kids. Liked it so much that my history loving son wanted to see the IMAX about d-day. It was great as well but a little loud... More

Everything was amazing, highly recommend. Very easy to get around the Museum and hours were spent on the hands on Health Check they had going when we were there.

We went on a Wednesday to avoid the crowds but it was FULL of daycare groups. They would walk the kids to an area and let them be free. At the body area where you could do different things had a line of 10-15 kids at each station with no adults. In the space area they had an exhibit where... More

Cool museum - glad we visited. Our kids enjoyed some of the interactive exhibits. And it was quite educational - they left asking lots of questions.

Went to the Mayan Exhibit. Expected more actually since we had just gone to Belize & Guatemala and been to Tikal. I've been to the Anthropology Museum in Mexico City & expected more I guess. I want to go to the Imax show.

What a great way to spend a few hours in Denver! I'm not a very big art fan and skipped the Denver Art Museum, but still wanted to have a cultural day. As others have said, the museum is huge and houses not only large dino skeletons but taxidermic animals such as earless seals and polar bears! In addition to... More

The DMNS is a wonderful place to take kids of any age. The new Discovery Zone was a great place to spend an hour. Although, my daughter wouldn't have minded spending some more time there. This museum has such a wonderful variety and depth to its Space and Mineral collections. Additionally, there is so much more to see from Egyptian... More

We went with our 2 teens and they were engaged and interested in the entire visit from entrance to exit. Little expensive and recommend going during the week for parking and fewer crowds.

If you have a couple of hours to spend, this was a great museum. Both of my boys enjoyed the visit. The special exhibit was amazing! We loved the fact that the museum is large enough that you do not feel overwhelmed with crowds. The employees were all very helpful and full of knowledge.
