I have visited many Children's Museums and I was very disappointed in the limited number of exhibits. It was very crowded and we actually had to wait in line to see each part of the museum. Some of the exhibits on the website were closed. However, there is an expansion underway that could really improve the museum. For a one... More

This place was a hit with our group of multi-aged children. The exhibits were clean, entertaining and well thought out. Bring a group of kids and find the KID in you again!!

The first Tuesday night of the month is free here from 4-8 pm, and given that it would save our family roughly $40 for something we planned to do on vacation anyway, it seemed like a no brainer. HUGE mistake. We arrived at about 5 pm and had to wait in line for approximately a half hour to get in,... More

An excellent place for Kids. I took 3 kids ages 5, 6 and 7 along and they spent 5 hours without a fuss. Greatly recommend this place for all denver residents and visitors. Only thing that can be changed is the entry fee. $9 for kids is a bit pricey!

Over priced, out-dated, run-down, dirty, unsafe, lack of creativity and learning activities, unorganized, crowded, no parking, bathroom toilet paper rolls and old food containers as materials for kids art stations, mix matched and heavily used hands on items, missing pieces, broken pieces and no staff replenishing stations for new comers. Absolute worst and most disappointing chrildrens museum experience for my... More

We've been to many children's museum and this was one of the best that we have visited. The kids loved the fire engine as well as most of the exhibits upstairs. Every time I thought we had seen everything, we'd find another exhibit. Everything was in very good condition. I saw that they are in the middle of expansion as... More

Great place with lots for little kids to do from playing with fire equipment, being a vet, to painting to bubbles. Don't skip story time the workers do a great job with it!

We've had a membership off and on to this museum for the past 4 years, since our son was born. I have to say that every time we go here, we have fun. The fire engine is his favorite but several of the other exhibits are a close second. The only downside of this place is that it sometimes is... More

As the mother of 6 and grandmother of 5, I consider myself something of an expert on children's museums by now. We have been to these museums all across the country. After reading the reviews, I am sad to say that this museum is OK, fun for kids, but limited it it's exhibits. The set up /floor plan leads to... More
