I go to the DMN&S five or six times a year, usually with my boys (ages 11 and 13). They have two huge exhibition halls that have traveling temporary exhibits throughout the year. I've seen the same traveling exhibit in other cities before and Denver's is always the best. They consider traffic flow, kid entertainment, interesting facets, education, design and... More

Despite it being a beautiful sunny Saturday, many families were here to visit. Staff were friendly and helpful. We opted to just attend the IMAX theater. Directions were clear on how to access the theater. They even sell refreshments, including popcorn, for the movie (but you are not allowed to take food items into the museum afterwards). Their bathrooms are... More

This place is not the best museum for todlers, but it is pretty awesome for 5 years on up to 99. A decent planetarium section and lots of different exhibits. If you are local or planning on going several days, it is worth it to join as a member. The cafe has decent food and the prices are fair. Good... More

A fine way to spend the day with older friends. You can bring the younger children but i didn't notice where they could roam freely (especially if your child has lots of energy). Children that can read and have a bit of understanding will really appreciate this fine place. A lot of good stuff neatly sprawled out.

Phenomenal museum with engaging exhibits and TONS to see and do! When we moved back to DC for a bit this was one of 3 things we really missed --even in the dizzying array of national museums, there was nothing there like DMNS, and none of the museums had exhibits and events that are as engaging (to young children, teens...

We took our 7 year old granddaughter to the museum after school last Wednesday. We loved the new exhibit Extreme Mammals. You need tickets to this exhibit, but it's free, and you can print them at home, and just bring them with you to save time, and not standing in line. It was very informative and fun. They have a...

The museum has a lot of hands on exhibits that kids enjoy and traveling exhibits that add to the fun. If you have young children they have a wonderful area for them to explore all kinds of things, from dinosaur bones to gears to a great water area that lets them have fun without getting soaked!
