    The staff at the museum were very knowledgeable and friendly and had many interesting stories about the Brown family and the contents of the house. Not all of the furnishings in the house actually belonged to the Brown family, but they are period appropriate. I thought I knew about Molly Brown, but I learned many things I didn't know.

    This amazing museum has something for everyone! Huge collection includes pedal cars, bicycles, a large collection of motorcycles, trains, planes and automobiles. Home to the Big Boy #4005 steam locomotive and Amelia Earhart’s Kissel Gold Bug roadster. If that wasn’t enough, they have a special exhibit that changes every 3 months. It was an eclectic display of convertibles “Top Down Fun” when I recently visited. I found the museum staff and volunteers to be very knowledgeable and friendly. Be sure to spend some time in their gift shop before you depart.

    Huge collection of aircraft to see and read about, seeing huey, f4 fantom, f111 and f14 is incredible, I wish I could see them in action. They even have the x-wing from Star War here an the flight simulator is fun too if you liked that.

    Excellent Museum with a wide variety of decorative and fine arts covered. I so-called it a hidden gem and should be added to your Denver itinerary.

    What a fabulous experience. So much memorabilia. Bruce greeted us and shared many of his special items that relate to the Brooklyn Dodgers and Ebbets Field while we swapped stories.

    This exhibit was a weird and wonderful ride through a surreal and often humorous world. At first we tried to make sense of things: where do we go first? How does this all work? Then we decided to just give up on logic and experience things as they came. I loved the organic part, my husband and kid loved the giant castle that doubled as a musical instrument, we all loved the subversive humor. We each bought Q-Passes for $3, and it was fun to "collect" memories. The food in the cafeteria was expensive but very fresh and tasty, the gift store was good with things for every budget. We spent just under 4 hours wandering the halls, and we had plenty to think about and talk about on the way home. The artistry was amazing, and thinking about the amount of work that went into creating this exhibit was mind boggling. I'd advise people to take an empty water bottle, there are places to fill it in the lobby. Finally, there are plenty of places to sit inside the exhibit (sometimes as a part of the art itself!) and elevators are available so people with limited mobility should be fine.

    We visited the Money Museum (bring valid Drivers License or Passport) not recalling knowing what to expect, this is not the US Mint. It was fine display of the history or US currency but a little lacking in explaining.
    Very nice for young children as it also caters to them.
    Overall worth the visit if you are in the area.

    This museum is in one of the oldest firehouses in the city. It is relatively small - only a big bigger than a row house. There is equipment from the days of horse-drawn pumps and a great selection of clothing and other equipment. And at only $9 it is a great bargain.

    Super nice and friendly staff! I had trouble understanding the artist and her exhibit. But if she reaches others, that is what is important. I would go back for a different exhibit/artist.

    The historic artifacts are mostly things you'd see in other museums of the West, though they do add to the story of the Black Americans who lived with them. For me, the best part of this interesting little museum was the rows of photos that line the walls. Be sure to read the captions; they'll give you a much better idea of the peoples' lives and achievements.

    Short but a fun experience. Cost $60 for 2 people which is a little steep, but there are some fun photo sets. The infinity room in particular was fun.

    Cute little place with interesting master pieces. Staff was friendly and gave an overview of the place. The scavenger hunt was interesting.

    The only reason I do not rate this place as Excellent is because it is so tiny that, even as the displays are fantastic, there is very little to see, and hardly enough to warrant the place being called a museum. It might be better titled Casa de las Americas, to lessen the expectation of the visitor, and the deception.. What is on display is interesting though. The place is located in Denver's so-called art district, with lots of little galleries and many interesting murals. The Uber driver recommended I visit the place during the day and said this is a no-go place after dark.

    Great little museum. It's free and very educational. This little museum is chalked full of great information on the judicial system with lots of interactive stations. We really enjoyed the visit. The museum curator even took us up to see the supreme court room (court wasn't in session)! Everyone was pleasant, informative, and approachable. A great experience for kids and adults.
