Loved this museum!

This was such a wonderful experience. My favorite part was the rock and gem collection. Prepare to be dazzled. I also enjoyed the exhibits about animals.

We went on a busy Saturday but found it easy to navigate through the crowds. There were lots of kid friendly interactive parts to each exhibit. The space exhibit was a little outdated but everything else was really top notch. There is a ton of realistic wildlife exhibits and a good size gem and mineral collection. We loved the dinosaurs...

We attended the IMAX National Parks Adventure 3D movie on a Sunday afternoon. Our daughter was with us and she was on crutches and in a boot. We were directed to the elevator and to an area where we could sit without having to climb a number of steps. Employees went out of the way to accommodate.

The majority of the exhibits at this museum were dioramas. They were huge and very detailed. We spent three hours here and didn't see everything. The children's area was a lot of fun and a nice break for our three year old. We didn't have a stroller but were able to rent one for $1 inside which helped tremendously. The... More

This place has memories, i Max movies, mummies, and much much more, all in one beautifully historic building, with stunning views of Denver outside, and of the whole world inside. 10/10

Visited the museum in the middle of the summer and it was filled with kids on summer camp who were all well-behaved and eager to learn. The museum had a special exhibition about robots. Some parts were super - while others unfortunately seemed to be broke. We saw a 3D movie about National Parks which was quite appropriate this close... More

I have been here several times over the years. My son loved it when he was young and still does as a teenager (although he is more selective about the exhibits he likes). We have done the movies and exhibits and can honestly say we have never been disappointed. The cafeteria has decent food choices so packing food isn't necessary.... More

Enjoyed our visit especially the space exhibits, interactive displays and Imax. There were a lot of interactive displays that were broken or not functioning.

We could have spent three days here. The museum is extensive and interactive. One of my favorites exhibits -- The dinosaurs-- many of the most dramatic specimen in a space that allows for comparative views. In all areas, there are live experts who are available for explanations and demonstrations. Another amazing display is an electronic globe that shows weather patterns... More

We recently purchased a family membership to the museum! We absolutely love the exhibits and the people. The robot display was fantastic! I like that the museum changes up some of the displays to keep it fresh and the planetarium is amazing.
