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

It gave us something to do. At first my kids were more observant but after a while they got into it and mainly liked the bubble room and the market area. Not sure if it is the best place for a 6 and 7 year old but maybe once the construction is done it will be. I'm confused as to... More

Although small, they had lots of great things for kids to do. Our two year-old loved everything, especially the fire truck. I felt the price was too high for what they had, but our kid really enjoyed it so it was worth it. Will be back when they finish the additions later this year.

My kids and I absolutely love this place. There is ALWAYS something interesting not only for them, but me as well. The staff is great. The facility is clean and well maintained. And the exhibits are fun. Certainly worth a visit. Great way to spend a few hours

We came in here one mid morning to let the kids have a little fun and give them a chance to explore a bit. Even though they were under construction they still had quite a bit open and available for the kids to explore. Both of mine had fun with the Fire Station on the first floor and the kitchen... More

Truly a fun place for kids and young teenagers. They had some neat exhibits but weren't encouraging my 14 yr old to participate much, but she enjoyed herself anyway. We had some neat photos taken, the museum was well kept and orderly. We enjoyed it but it may be more suited for kids 4-12 or 13.

Giving the place 3 stars for now and we enjoyed it while it lasted. We were there for about an hour total... Before running out of things to do. We took our 14 month old and he really had fun in the bubble room and the fire truck room. We had to help him with everything but he really had... More
