    A really neat place to visit and run by some people who do an outstanding job. Tour was great and well worth the admission. If you have a weekend in Denver, work this in.

    Loved the display. The “Big Boy” engine is fascinating, the vintage cars are beautiful, and to top it off, there are Burma Shave signs! A real blast from the past. Great experience.

    I had no idea this museum existed. The collection is sure to please anyone who loves a modern aesthetic. The staff was very friendly, easy parking. I enjoyed myself quite a lot!

    Great hangar showcasing various aircraft, including a Start Wars X-Wing complete with R2-D2. It was really cool to look at aircraft that were actually flown in wartime. Great place for people who love space, planes, and history! A person with general interest could finish the exhibit in 1-2 hours, but if this is of special interest to you, I'd plan for 2-3 hours. Free parking was available right in front of the hangar. There is a brewery right next door (Lowry Beer Garden) as well as a bagel shop, Woodgrain Bagel & deli, and an Italian place called Cafe Mercato, which was amazing.

    We were very impressed with the amount of ballpark memorabilia - from so many stadiums, new and old. The layout and presentation was great. Bruce was on hand to share stories, point out several rare pieces, but most of all share his love of baseball. We highly recommend a visit to this very special museum!

    I've been to this museum before for a child's birthday party (it was great for that!) and brought my visiting brother's family back when we were exploring the town. It was interesting and fun and it doesn't take too too long. There is a good gift shop and firetruck on which kids can dress up and play.

    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.

    nice little museum. had 2 or 3 presentations going but not too much. it's just not a city for a major museum. it's nice though. i'd go again next season when something new is there, mostly to support the arts in denver. just can't expect too much.

    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.

    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.

    We arrived a few minutes early & got to tour the museum area which was pretty cool. Tony was our guide and he was super knowledgeable about all the aspects of the tour. It was interesting to learn all the facts & behind the scenes stuff that goes on. We are die hard Broncos fans so this was a very awesome experience!

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

    This is a small art museum that celebrates Latin-American artists through rotating cultural exhibits. During our visit, the thematic strand was surviving domestic abuse in the Latin community. There were many works done by local artists around this theme. There is a small gift shop on site of pieces donated to the museum and proceeds go to the charity tied to the artistic theme of the season.
