NOT THAT INTERESTING!!

Would NOT chose to spend money or effort to visit this institution again! It cost 2 X as much in transportation as admittance!

A Denver Must-See!
Oct 2021 • Solo
This Denver Museum is so fun and interactive. Great for all ages! It explores everything from minerals and gemstones to the human body to space. They also have quite a few of life-size dioramas of animals from all over the world that look so realistic! Give yourself at least 4 hours at this location. It’s truly a wealth of information! And also don’t miss the 4th story balcony that overlooks the nearby park and the Denver skyline. Really a great experience !

Museum informative, missing an opportunity to expand information/exhibits
Sep 2021 • Couples
This museum is relatively large. There are activities for kids. The best exhibit was the dinosaur exhibit, but it was more of a pre-historic exhibit as it went over the earth’s origins as well. I saw a ton of people with kids just run to the dinosaur portion of the exhibit. This was the largest exhibit. The mummy exhibit was shockingly small, just one room and barely any information. The health exhibit has some interactive portions that are okay, although no information that blew my mind. The planetarium was fair - nice seats, good screen, but the show just showed me the planets with one or two sentences about each planet and some moons, nothing new or that interesting or up to date. I’ve been to larger museums, or at least museums with more comprehensive exhibits. Only took us 3-4 hours to do the whole thing - and I read ALL the info in museums. Would I go again? Probably not. Would I go again if I had kids? Maybe the special exhibits - not too expensive for a rainy day.

Great Visit
Sep 2021
We enjoyed the displays and the interactive parts of the museum. Kids would really like this museum. The displays of the mammals and birds are spectacular. There were a lot of "empty spaces" where I suspect some new things will be coming.

Love This
Aug 2021
It has been a long time since the last time I went to a Museum, and this one exceeded my expectations. The shows and attractions were breathtaking. I didn't have the chance to see everything, as it is so big and there are so many attractions, I look forward to going back and spending a full day there in order to see everything.

Great Visit
Aug 2021 • Family
We really enjoyed the museum and could not see all of it one day. We like to read most of the information and after 4.5 hours we were ready to leave but there was still so much more to see. We viewed both IMAX and Planetarium Shows. I purchased show and entry tickets online. My 12-year-old grandson came along and enjoyed the museum.

Educational!

Had a great visit at the museum, spent about 2 1/2 hours walking through the exhibits and could have been there longer if we had visited the IMAX or special exhibits. The museum is located in the City Park which was beautiful.

Lower Your Prices
Jul 2021
Took two separate trips this summer, and both were new for our grandchildren. It's sad that I only can give it a 3. We have to say we loved all that the museum offers!

If we had done every event - which our grandkids preferred we do - it would have cost each of us around $30-40 dollars. Then we have to stop at the gift shop!

Except the IMAX, (timed tickets were needed) all other events had no lines, few customers, and many volunteers sitting with nothing to do.

Maybe consider a business plan that would lower the costs - especially for what you deem as special events - it may attract more customers?

Entertaining Afternoon
Aug 2021 • Couples
Went with my partner for the afternoon. It was interesting and we learned a lot. The permanent exhibits were wonderful and engaging. We bought extra tickets for one of the temporary exhibits and it was well worth the extra. We didn't have our kids this time and really wish we had for our dinosaur fanatic.
