We’ve been to the Wildlife Experience 3 times while visiting family in Colorado, the last visit was before it was transferred to CU South. This was a great place to spend 3 or 4 hours with the kids. We did 5 distinct activities that kept us busy for an entire afternoon. First we watched nice IMAX show (this was extra),... More

We went here to see the Lego exhibit they had. The exhibit was tiny and not that great. There were only a few things to look at at maybe twice activities. One of them was broken. Terrible waste of money. Wildlife Experience itself was really terrible. If you are into taxidermy then maybe this place is for you. Otherwise, go... More

I did enjoy it for awhile. The animals are really well set up and its neat to walk through the different areas of the world. Its very clean. The art and sculptures are very nice. The theater is very nice and clean too. Alot of the stuff in the kids area seems to be out of date or not working.

We were members for several years and loved to take the kids because it was the only "museum" type activity in South Denver. They often had really interesting exhibits ( reptile exhibit, Lego exhibit, etc...) as well as seasonal events that the kids really enjoyed. The staff was always incredible and well informed. Then CU came in ...... Now, no... More

I love the brew and wine fests held at the Wildlife Experience. The movies are also fun, and the exhibits are wonderful. The last time we attended was shortly after the announcement that REMAX had purchased the WE and that it was becoming a new home for University of Colorado. I think that it is a great place for the... More

There are so many options when visiting TWE. We've had a membership for a couple years, so we can go in on most breaks to see the new exhibits, and revisit the permanent Globeology. The Science on a Sphere globe they have upstairs can be used by teachers to show any type of data from NOAA! There are a few... More

This museum was privately owned and was donated to be a part of the C S U campus. A large part has been converted to classrooms. The main museum is still intact but the future of the museum is unknown. They have cancelled all memberships. It was a fun place to take the kids during cold afternoons and although it... More

A nice theatre showing great Imax movies! The animal exhibits are rather disappointing. A fun movie experience on a cold winter day.
