I first took my son here when he was a precocious 6 year old, and we spent the whole day marveling at the fascinating exhibits, especially the dinosaurs. I took him again when he was 17 and his brother 11, and again had an amazing day exploring all it had to offer... We've visited the Smithsonian and the American Museum... More

It's so nice the displays and care they give customers. They are happy you are there and they thank you for supporting their facility. I will be back and soon.

We had a very nice time.The silk road was very interesting and worth the extra money. The block hole at the planetarium was awesome actually felt like we were moving in some parts of the show , a definite must see.

Great diversity in this museum. Something for everyone - young and old. Many special exhibits throughout the year (extra cost) and at least three different things at the IMAX Theatre always running. There is a planetarium, too! We have been long time members and take the grand children often.

It's hard for me to give any place about nature and science a bad rating. This place isn't as big as, say, the Chicago Field Museum but it gets the job done. The restaurant was pretty good and at a good price and the entry fairs were cheap as well. Make sure you check out a show in the planetarium... More

this is an amazing museum. The exhibits were absolutely great, it made you feel as though you were actually in that time. There were interactive exhibits for adult and children . it was fun way to spend a couple hours.

I have always loved the museum and have been a member for most of my life. As an adult it is quite an interesting place to learn new things, but there are a variety of exhibits for all ages, from space to rocks and minerals to dinosaurs.

First thing is first - don't go for the first time on their "free day" in honor of Earth Day. I forgot this is Denver and the place was PACKED. Don't get me wrong we all still had a good time. However, if you don't want your visit to feel "rushed" for lack of a better word, don't go on... More
