Good price. Lots of neat exhibits to look at. Fun and interactive. The new Whales exhibit is really cool. It was a little crowded, lots of school field trips going on, so loud kids running around was disruptive.

This is a very interesting museum. Not being from the US, I was very interested in all of the wildlife exhibits. I also went to one of the IMAX screenings and that was really interesting. When I left it was poring with rain, and there were no taxis waiting, so got very wet walking back to my hotel

This is a must do if you are in the Denver area. They have three floors of spectacular exhibits that are educational and interactive. Its for all ages, and it will take 4 - 6 hours at minimum to enjoy everything it has to offer. Best museum I've ever visited.

we went just last night with our daughter and her husband, for an "educators only" event at the museum. Of course we didn't see it all, but spent some good time in the geological area, new discover center (preschool oriented) and whales exhibits. Also caught a planetarium show about aliens, which was geared toward children but still good fun. This... More

I thought 3 hours was enough time to budget for this museum and I was wrong! It's very engrossing and interesting. Nature dioramas and gem/mineral section might be a little boring if you don't live in the area. Mummies exhibit is not to be missed - fantastic! I look forward to going back for their new exhibit 'Whales' and also... More

We did not set aside enough time to visit everything in the museum, but we really enjoyed everything we did see and we learned many new things. My favorite exhibit was the creative sculptures made a Russian immigrant. They were all made of stone and such funny scenes. We enjoyed the IMAX movie, too. I would recommend calling before you...

Normally I don't like to spend a day touring a dark museum, but this is a must see. Yes there were school kids all over the place, but there were plenty of quiet times also. This place is huge & will hold a bunch people at the same time. There's plenty of seating around to rest your puppies. If the... More

This Museum was pretty cool! There were a lot of different exhibits. The best one in my opinion was the Expedition Health! You get to do all these fun activities and you get your own pass that lets you save information. They even have a biology lab where you get to do actual labs!! Overall, it was a fun visit... More
