We enjoyed the children's museum of Denver. It was laid out nicely and easy to navigate. I believe it isn't a very good value, a little pricey for the limited exhibits. The bubbles exhibit was the kids favorite.

Spent a couple hours here exploring. Over all it is a nice clean museum with some interesting things to learn about. One could pack up the kids and spend half a day here. It is not the largest museum but never the less their are lots to see but not to hard to get through it all fairly quickly.

Great place for your little one to blow off some steam where they are encouraged to touch and interact with EVERYTHING! Get the annual membership - it is very much worth it when you and your kiddos get stir crazy in the winter or, like now, when it is raining every day!

Lots of awesome and unique activites. It's about the price of a movie ticket, but if you stay there for at least a few hours, it's worth it.

We have two teenagers and an 8 year old and they were all entertained equally. There were so many activities and cool things to see it was really fun. Only drawback was the construction going on but other than that it was fun.

My 4 yr. old son always has a good time, I on the other hand find the place to be a bit unsanitary. It's a fun place for the kids, lots too do, but just needs a good bath.

Inexpensive, hands on science projects including a work shop, bubble factory, woodland animal climbing room, little ones climbing forest, dentist pretend, vet pretend, costumes, air powered ball and track build-its, an outside playground and cafe. You may not see anything other than the first exhibit, however, as it is a fire station with kids fireman jackets, a fire pole, fire... More

The Children's Museum of Denver is a fun, hands on, educational and interactive museum for young kids. The museum is relatively small for a large city but is in a process of expansion. This spot offers something for everyone with lots of classes, art program and story time. Have fun visiting with your kids, grandkids or relatives.

We went here with our 1 year old and his 2 year old cousin and they had a blast! Oh who am I kidding? The adults had a blast too! The bubble room was probably our favorite spot. The kids loved it all. The museum was clean and everyone was really nice. We liked how there were different areas for... More
