Only about 8 things in whole place are actually interactive. Old school electronic movements, very cheesy. We were very disappointed, due to high cost to get in versus actual quality of views and items. Animal are all recreated and false fur is bare in some spots making it fell even less and less real. This place needs more animal noises,... More

We have taken our grand kids for two 3D movies in the past month and it is a great location with a very comfortable theatre. The movie on Kenya was excellent and the flying monster movie was good too.

The kids loved the visiting Lego exhibit. That's why we went. The permanent wildlife exhibit is OK, but might not be very engaging to a lot of kids. Our 5 year old got bored looking at the stuffed/mechanical animals after 15 minutes. It's really geared to older kids say 7 and up. The Imax movies are nice.

We were lucky enough to go during the exhibit of animal artists. Amazing works of art in so many different mediums. The globology section was relateable for adults and children. Included in this were "diaramas" which were educational and great to look at.They really gave you a feel for the parts of the world they were demonstrating.

We didn't quite know what to expect from the Wildlife Experience based on the website descriptions. Now that we've seen it, it makes more sense. It's basically a modern take on typical museums with motion-activated animals and people in the diorama scenes instead of everything being stuffed. You can walk through different habitats and see all the animals. Along the... More

Best location near Parker to get away with the grand baby and stroll down an enclosed ramp 1,2,3 times. Especially good for the littles who love to ride and look, senses tuned! Exercises the old Grandma without worrying about weather-related issues. And when it is time for the babes to stretch and crawl, there is a room dedicated to just... More

We were looking for something to do near Lone Tree and happened upon this place. They were having a discount day, $5 per over 3yrs. They had live wolves there that day which was neat. It's like a zoo but the animals are automated and set in a mock natural habitat. They do have an aquarium area with live fish,... More

We stopped by to kill time before checking into our hotel. It was super quiet. We did a scavenger hunt and played games about each climate zone. The IMAX was probably a good show but we were so exhausted from traveling we got a 45 minute nap. There isn't a ton to do for Tweens. There was a little kid... More

This is a nice museum with a nice variety of animals and activities for kids of all ages. It's especially convenient during cold winter months when you feel 'cooped up' inside. Plenty of room to walk and kids to run - a concession stand/deli and a couple of age appropriate play areas. It is definitely worth the trip!
