I went on a free Bank of America day. My friends said this is the place to see. Loved all the exhibits. They made some great "snapshots" of life with different animals and areas around the world. Dinosaurs were awesome and huge. Everything is well done.

We had a good time on our trip here. The animal exhibits we amazingly detailed. The rocks and minerals were extensive. Where the disappointment came for us and my young son was the prehistoric exhibit. He was excited to see some amazing dinosaur displays. Much to his disappointment he had seen much better and much more extensive exhibits in small... More

This is meant for kids and teenagers, but really any age can enjoy this. I have been several times and I still get a kick out this place. This is one of those places that you get out what you put in; meaning don't just walk around; get involved and participate and read the presentations.

Their current traveling Mummies exhibit is one that the whole family enjoyed and learned lots about. There are lots of details, displays, and interactive info about both the Peruvian and Egyptian Mummies that kids and adults alike can learn more about. A must see before February 2017. The Space center is always a fun and interactive way to get the... More

Several areas of the museum are very interesting including the exotic mammals, prehistoric and currently traveling mummy exhibit (they have a regular one, this is extra there for a few months). Great for young and older kids alike and enjoyed by parents!

Very affordable and was not overcrowded for the Sunday we went. They have some really cool "interactive touch screen displays" - you can see what is under the cloth layers of a mummy, move & rotate in 3D space - really fun! Enjoyed all the exhibits on display, very interesting & educational. They also had people at a few stations... More

This is definitely one of the best place in Denver area for family fun! Dinosaurs, Gems in mining cave, Space, Nature over Colorado area,,, Children loves to enjoy the discovery zone, too! One more thing... parking can be hard in nearby place in holidays... but they also have remote parking place (around the Park area).
