Visited with my son. He had a blast! It was smaller than I expected but there was plenty to do. From an adult perspective, I wish there had been more options in the cafeteria, and there were a few out-of-order exhibits. It looked like the outdoor area was pretty cool, but we'll check that out in the summer.

We have been members for 3 years and my kids still get excited to go. With the new additions both inside and outside there is so much to do (for all ages) that you probably won't get through it all in one visit. My only complaint is that my young kids often leave things (sunglasses, water bottles, jackets etc) and... More

The area become very very slippery when... More

I went as a grandma with my grandchildren and found myself wanting to do all the activities set up for the children. Fun, fun, fun. Great learning.

We are visiting our grandchildren in Denver and their parents brought us all to the Children's Museum. What a great place for interactive and educational play. So many hand on activities for all ages. Great way to spend a cold winter morning. The staff was very accommodating and helpful with suggestions and answering questions.

This is a world-class museum with multiple age-appropriate layers of interactive activities for children and families including a quiet area for toddlers who need a few minutes with less stimulation while remaining surrounded by the most delightful, high-quality quiet learning experiences.

Thank you for taking the time to review the Museum. We are thrilled to hear you had a great time. Thank you for also pointing out to other guests that we do have a low-sensory area in case your kiddo is easily overwhelmed. More

I read reviews about the museum being overcrowded and was worried, but once I got there you soon realised it is busy because it is AWESOME. We had been in denver in december and it very hard to find play areas with the cold weather and snow. The museum offers so much for kids to do in terms of play... More

Neat little museum. We had 4 kids with us; ages 6-9. We spent 3 hrs here and had lunch. Interesting and fun interactive exhibits, but the building is very compact and tight. Each section was VERY crowded and busy. We went on a summer weekday. Lunch was ok- not a huge variety and one register.

Had slight sticker shock at the admission price but as soon as you get in it's totally worth it. Great interactive exhibits. The bubbles were our favorite.
