I learned a lot about Boulder by visiting this museum. My favorite part was learning about residents not being too pleased with the hippies when they first came to Boulder in the 60s. Although there could have been more for adults to do, I enjoyed...More

We enjoyed three interactive exhibits: DaVinci's machines, NASA, and Sportsology. There was lots to do-- touch screens, levers, trampolines and a maker space to build your own DaVinci-style machine. I loved this museum, which lets you observe, ask questions, test hypotheses, and discover answers.
