What an unbelievable museum. They touch on everything!! The only thing we did not do was go to one of the Imax shows. They have a nice cafeteria for lunch, with a salad bar, etc. All was good! Parking was easy and ample. Great day!

I'm a museum-aholic, but this place surpassed all of the museums I've been to. It's almost a bit too overwhelming, and you just can't see everything in one visit. I grew up in Los Angeles, and would go to the Museum of Science and Industry

You could spend a whole day here. We only took in the main part of the museum and one of the IMAX movies. We had a great time and our kids enjoyed it very much and would go back next time we are in Denver.

Museum is large & so very much to see. The price is right for sure. We spent a whole day visiting so make sure you allow time to tour. Plenty of parking available. The displays are awesome with detailed information placards related to what you are viewing. All is neat, clean & in order. Plenty of rest rooms. Snack bar... More

I've been to a lot of science museums, but this museum probably has the best mineral and gem exhibit I've ever seen! Worth a visit.

Two adults and 4 children and we all had a good tome. There are many exhibits, discoveries and IMAX movies. We went into the space exhibit and were there over 2 hrs. We all found something to do, even the 2 yr. old. We also went into the children discovery center and they had a blast. There are nice seating... More

Unique permanent art exhibit by Vasily Konovalenko is located on the 3d floor of the museum. I did not see anything alike in any other museum around the Globe. Each of a dozen compositions on display does not exceed 1 ft., is made of gems, minerals, metals, petrified wood, enamel and represents Russian folk. It worth to visit museum just... More
