The DMNS has a new kids area that can occupy kids for hours. The Space exhibit in also very kid friendly. It is a great place to visit on weekdays in winter. The kids can run around and enjoy the dioramas without bothering anyone. The food choices on site are good and they offer healthy options at very fair prices.... More

We brought our family here after a week in Colorado before flying out. We were impressed with this wonderful museum. The exhibits were informative, and the staff was especially great.

We have been members for many years. They keep us posted all the new exhibits. The Silk Road was very informative. Sometimes they match the I-MAX movie with the exhibit. Always check that out. I would stay away from Fridays. Seems the teachers plan field trips for that day. They were on top of the dig for the finds in... More

The only way to do this place is to get a pass. The museum is so huge that my kids only make it through a couple of the exhibits before they are done. Some of the exhibits have an old feel to them and probably haven't been changed out since 1975, yet somehow we still love this place and are... More

We visited the Denver Museum of Nature and Science on a Monday during the holiday season. It is a large complex with a wide variety of both permanent and travelling exhibits. The museum is open every day of the year except Christmas from 0900 to 1700. Parking is available in front of the museum as well as in an underground... More

I wish we had more time and stamina! There is so much to see and do at this museum. I especially enjoyed walking through the dioramas and looking for the hidden elves. Ask at the information desk for the sheet that explains where to find them. Fun for kids and adults. I didn't like that certain exhibits cost extra (not... More

A great way to spend an afternoon in Denver. Saw both of the temporary exhibits and 3D movie at IMAX in addition to the permanent exhibits. A good value for the cost!

Went with my 5 year old grandson, his mother and my wife. Exhibits were informative for all ages. We all had a great time and learned something about, space, animals, whales and health. Would highly recommend to anyone visiting Denver.
