Traveled here with kids ages 8,10,15 and there is something for everyone. Went on a crowded Saturday but still managed to see just about everything. Wish we had gotten there earlier and spent all day rather than just 5 hours.

I love the exhibits here. There is so much to see and do my kids love spending the day here. From rock and minerals, to space, dinosaurs, mummies, health/body--this museum has it all. One thing I wish--is that they didn't charge extra for their special exhibits--or that it was less expensive. I feel really lucky though to have such a... More

The museum is a lot of fun, especially the health section. You definitely have to make sure to get the peak passes when you go into the health section, they make things interactive and fun. A lot to see as its split into 3 levels so, plan on spending some time exploring. Definitely recommend for kids of all ages. My... More

The museum is a wonderful way to spend a day in Denver. The planetarium is always enjoyable. Being museum members also makes it an affordable full day activity.

Nice exhibits- many interactive- make this a great place to take the pre-teens and early teens. Fun to do with older kids/adults as well but some exhibits (space, animals, etc.) are really geared towards children.

I went there with 2 girl friends. About half the museum were real animals that had been stuffed. This part is similar to the Field museum in Chicago. There was a section on mummies. Ireally enjoyed the rock and gem area. We saw the National Parks Imax movie. There is a special Robotics exhibit, but we did not pay extra... More

Yesterday my wife and I went with a friend who's a Denver resident to visit the Denver Museum of Nature & Science specially to see the special exhibit on Robots. It was outstanding, with a wide variety of technology and range of interactive as well as observed activities. The oldest example was a robot designed in Germany in 1921 to... More

The exhibits are great. Only thing I would suggest is that you start in the morning. In the summer even on week days the summer camps are everywhere and gets sooo very crowded. When I left around 11:30 am there were no parking spots and the whole garages was filled and it was a MONDAY. Anyways the museum is always... More
