My sister took our kids, ages 2-10, here and they all LOVED it! The younger kids loved it all, and the older kids really liked the bubbles, the painting, and making their own designs and objects out of all the recycled products they had! We went home with sooo much rubbish! We also, went during a school day so there... More

My 4 year old loves this. They are expanding (which is good!), so it will be neat when that is completed.

We went there first thing while getting into Denver on New Year's Eve. It was packed! The only thing the boys (11&5) liked was the bubble exhibit. There was only a floor and a half of exhibits. We went to the children's museum in Springfield, mo last year so this was a total let down. $36 and we didn't even... More

Top notch children's museum. If you have a 2-5 year old, you must bring them here. Several average play areas, with a few exceptional examples like the Newton's pneumatic area, bubble science area, and firetruck exhibit. An easy place to spend 2-3 hours. They are also in the middle of an ambitious expansion project which should bring many more exhibits... More

We disliked that the toddler section of the museum was closed for construction this time. :(, our little one would have loved it!

Love this place. But it needs expansion. Too small for the many many many kids. It gets too busy on weekends and holidays

This place was awesome. My 1 year old and I accompanied my husband on a business trip here, and to get out of the boring hotel we went here one day. We were in Heaven! We played so hard! Wore out my little one (just what I wanted). The Young Child's room was so pleasant, padded, bright, relaxed, clean. I... More

The Children's Museum of Denver, Colorado, is now a special place for my grandson, currently 22 months old, and me. We visited recently and had a good time. The exhibits are interactive. He liked climbing on and off the real fire engine. His favorite was the exhibit of Newton's Laws of Motion, which involves loading balls into contraptions that carry... More

I took both grandkids, 2 and 3, to this wonderful facility. The fun never stopped. It was crowded, but there is so much to experience that we never stood around waiting. From the firemen room to the bubble room it was fun fun fun. And they learned a bit too :) I highly recommend this exciting fun filled museum. We... More

We took our 31/2 year old Grandson to the Museum. His favorite place was the Fire Truck room with a Full size Fire truck to get on and explore. He also enjoyed the Tree House, Bubble Room, Book Nook and Make a craft room with tools. They are in the process of adding on to this Museum and he loved... More
