Too much for one day... upgraded tickets to membership

We first went a few weeks before this review, and there was so much to see on level one that we had to upgrade our tickets to an annual membership. The great thing is that your... read more

We first went a few weeks before this review, and there was so much to see on level one that we had to upgrade our tickets to an annual membership. The great thing is that your ticket price is counted toward the membership in the same day, so for the cost of one more set of day passes we can... More

One of the best museums I've been to. Lots of exhibits. Very innovative. Good for children. Worth the trip. Loved the poison exhibit and the mythical creatures exhibit. Permanent exhibits great. Plan on spending several hours there. Beautiful park adjacent.

My daughter and I visited here and had a wonderful day exploring the museum. We arrived at 9:30 and stayed until 3:30. For $47 total for the two of us, we got entrance to the museum, a planetarium show and an Imax movie. There were several selections each for the planetarium and Imax shows. In addition to the regular offerings... More

We came to Denver and had this on our list. We live in DC and go to Chicago and NYC all the time, so the snob in me did not expect this to live up to comparisons with the Field, Smithsonian, or NY Museum of Natural History. I was wrong. We got here at 10, left at 4, and could... More

So I got a pass a couple time when my daughter was younger. It's a good place to run around to in the winter when it's cold and you don't want your 5 year old to get frost bite. I like the rated g movies on the IMAX, great stuff for little ears. We love when they have the exhibits.... More

Met with a girlfriend and both of our kids for a really enjoyable day and much needed catch up. We enjoyed the planetarium show, the dinosaur exhibit and the outer space exhibit. The kids especially enjoyed the Discovery Zone portion which is really special, far more interactive than most. Great place to bring the kids and be able to chat... More
