My family was visiting from out of state and stopped by on the monthly free admission day. Pretty cool dinosaur section, but otherwise, so-so.

We visited with three kids under 7 and we're planning on seeing the zoo today as well, but this museum kept its hold on is until closing. The new discovery zone is almost worth the price of admission on its own. Must-visit with small kids in Denver.

I LOVED this science museum and am glad I got to spend more than three hours there. It covers a broad range of science from dinosaurs to galaxies. Much of it is diorama-based and they are done exceptionally well. There are also lots of fossils. Plenty of stuff for kids, lots of interactive displays and they explain to all levels.... More

Made a stop at the museum while in town and it did not disappoint. From the moment you walk in and you see the T. Rex you know it's going to be good. This museum is very big. It took me and my wife over 3hours to go thru all three levels. It would prob be a all day thing... More

During our most recent visit (July 2014) we took in the Maya exhibit and iMax panda movie. I've heard less than positive things about the... More

Great Maya exhibit - plenty of hands on things for kids while adults read all the info. The kids loved the IMAX theater about the lemurs of Madagascar. Enjoyed coffee and wifi in the cafe. Wish we had more time for all the sections. There were no discounts available like AAA unless you bought a memberships which doesn't help visitors... More

Fun museum to visit not just for kids! They had the Mayan exhibit which was just ok since I have seen the real thing in person; Gems & Minerals were my favorite from the petrified tree trunk to the crystal cave and everything in between! Great show at the planetary! Space odyssey and lots more to see!

We have lived in Denver 20 years and this museum is our kids and my favorite. Could use an update to the health section but it is fun the first time. Ask for a map of the secret nomes hidden in museum. Great place for little kids to run around.
