This was one of the BEST experiences we had in Denver. The information and lay out is wonderful, and we loved the large dinosour exhibit.

“Wonderful Museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

This was our first time to the museum. We went to see the temporary Pompeii exhibit and enjoyed both the temporary exhibit as well as their permanent collections. the wildlife dioramas are quite fun though limited compared to the NY museum of Natural History. The lunar modules were cool as were the museum shops. We didn't have the opportunity to explore much beyond those exhibits, but they do have a planetarium and IMAX on site as well. Great way to spend the day.

“A must see”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

This museum is a treasure. The exhibits range from a great area about space travel to dioramas showing wildlife to dinosaurs to Egyptian mummies. The Imax is great as is the planetarium. Special exhibits can be expensive but worth the price. Spend an afternoon but bring your wallet!
