The place was fun, and crowded and cramped...and pricey, but we enjoyed the IMAX movies. We saw the "Secret Ocean" and "Space" movies, the latter being our favorite! Very informative and amazing! Plus, it was a good activity for a very cold day.

I enjoyed walking around the museum located in an old hanger. Bombers, fighters, missiles and bombs. They even had a star wars x fighter replica. was reminded of my grandfather who was a pilot and veteran. when he was alive he loved war movies and he would have loved this place.

We went to the museum after a short morning at the zoo next door. We were amazed from the beginning at the exhibits. The space exhibit and the health exhibit were our favorites. The lab area was fun for both kids and adults. We were only able to see about 75% of the museum, so we are looking forward to... More

We enjoyed our time at this museum. The mineral exhibit and the special Silk Road exhibit were my favorites. I would go back again when they change out the special exhibit to see something new. This was a great rainy day activity.

The gem and mineral exhibit is outstanding. So is the dinosaur/prehistoric area. Native American section is nice, and this museum does a pretty good job with zoology. Some of the special exhibits are also worth seeing. Try to go early in the morning (best) or late in the evening. Call ahead and ask if there are any particular days they... More

We've had a family membership for years, but we're finding it very valuable now that we have some younger grand kids to entertain. The "discovery zone" is a perfect place for play and learning, provides a little socializing as well when the children participate in the activities. The museum tends to be the busiest during the morning hours and weekends,... More

The geological and space sections are the best thing here.. The planetarium is definitely worth the ticket but could do with having a choice between an adult or child show. Whilst the animals are interesting it was too much focus on displays of stuffed animals. Dinosaur section was good but small. Skipped the native american section as it looked like... More

Very big, lots of nice displays of culture and history of Colorado such as animals and the people. Also very nice and interactive science exhibit. There is now an IMAX experience with selected movies. I tried the 3D journey into space, in my opinion it's not quite worth it. I would have loved to check out the planetarium movie, but... More

This is a must if you have kids of all ages. They have a variety of mind stimulating exhibits and demonstrations. The discovery zone is excellent for growing little minds and allows them hands on experiment with water engineering. The Dinosaur and Space wing are entertaining and educational to the little ones and even the grown ups. At the end... More
