    Very restful place to spend some time away from the bustling city of Denver.

    Wonderful variety of trees and bushes and other flora.

    Well worth a visit for serenity

    What a drive with switchbacks, great views, and thinner air at the top. Be sure to take your time and enjoy the ride up to the top. Bring a jacket for the top it's colder, This is higher than the famous Pike Peak however no train! You must drive it. We loved it. If your comfortable with mountain driving this is worth the drive.

    This is a must-see if you’re passing through Denver! Aside from the obvious eye catching architecture, the inside of the station is warm and bustling; perfect to stop into on a cold and rainy day ☔️ The inside smelled sweet and there are plenty of places to sit and lounge while waiting. Inside the station also offers a cute bookshop, and a few good looking restaurants. Don’t miss out on taking a look around this place!

    Coors Field in Denver isn't the newest major league baseball stadium but it is one of the most enjoyable to visit, especially after a night game. The first time my wife and I attended a game at Coors, not long after it opened in 1995, we recalled that it was located in a dilapidated area, underdeveloped area. The only saving graces were it was only two blocks east of Union Station and we were able to walk to and from the park from the Brown Palace Hotel. How things have changed! Located at 20th and Blake Street in the now bustling and vibrant LoDo neighborhood noted for shopping, restaurants, bars, nightlife and entertainment, the home field of the Colorado Rockies is a go-to destination. One unique aspect of Coors is that fans can walk on a concourse that encircles the entire stadium. Fans sitting in the first base and right field areas are treated to a spectacular view of the Rocky Mountains to the west. Most seats are painted dark green but seats in the 20th row of the upper deck are painted purple to mark the elevation of one mile or 5,280 feet above sea level. Remember, Denver is the Mile High City. On this occasion, for a Giants/Rockies night game, we chose to purchase seats in the center field section known as the Rockpile, which is as popular in Denver as the left and right field bleachers are in Chicago's Wrigley Field. Sitting at the very top of the Rockpile reminds me of when I was a student at the University of Illinois and sat on the top row of the upper deck on the east side of Memorial Stadium. The Rockpile is a long distance from home plate and the nearest hot dog strand but the view is breathtaking even if the air can be a bit chilly. After the game, stop at nearby View House Ballpark for a late-night snack. It is one of the most entertaining sports bars in town.

    I'm a Denver resident and long-time supporter of the DMNS. It's definitely one of Denver's greatest assets. It has brought to town stellar traveling exhibits such as the Pharaohs of Egypt, the Aztec Empire, the Dead Sea Scrolls, and items that were recovered from the sea floor from the sinking of the Titanic.

    Of course, the museum's special exhibits change all the time. Among the *permanent* exhibits I enjoy: a phenomenal gem and mineral collection (including some amazing Colorado gold nuggets); a fascinating collection of mammal fossils found at Corral Bluffs near Colorado Springs documenting the rapid evolution of mammals in the first million years following the mass dinosaur die-off 66 million years ago; and a good 'Prehistoric Journey' through the history of life on our planet (if a billion years of species evolution interests you).

    Also, this museum has lots of good reconstructed dinosaur skeletons -- many from Colorado. Several exhibits are geared toward kids, but I can't speak to those, having no small children of my own.

    The DMNS also has a pretty decent cafeteria food selection, for a museum. So: take a cafeteria break midway through your visit to recharge and refresh! Allow yourself plenty of time.

    Lovely building and great escape from the intense heat in late September. Friendly staff and a great museum shop - particularly the sand art.

    Tour guide Chris was great, very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. The tour and distillery were both a great experience, didn't feel rushed.

    I 😘 ve the ability to purchase tickets and to have a live person to help in times of uncertainty.
    I also loved how the animals are cared for and how the staff is knowledgeable and educated.
    The one negative I experienced was the lack of care and poor interaction of the train staff. The young children who many are very young and don't yet understand time we're expected to wait an unreasonable amount of time to take a train ride. The staff spent way too much time standing around.

    The Molly Brown House Museum in Denver was a popular tourist attraction after it was designated as a Denver landmark and listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1972. But after the Unsinkable Molly Brown gained notoriety in the epic 1997 motion picture Titanic, the 1889 Queen Anne/Richardsonian Romanesque structure at 1340 Pennsylvania Street, a short walk from the Brown Palace Hotel, became a must-see destination for visitors from across the country. Designed by the well-known architect William A. Lang for the original owners, Isaac and Mary Large, the house was purchased by Molly's husband, James Joseph (J.J.) Brown in 1894 for $30,000. The title was transferred to Molly in 1898 due to J.J.'s deteriorating health. Molly's real name was Margaret. She was a philanthropist, activist and socialite. She survived the sinking of the Titanic in 1912 and was known as the "Heroine of the Titanic" for her service to survivors and "The Unsinkable Molly Brown." The house was sold after Molly's death in 1932 for $6,000. It became a rooming house for men, a Jane Addams Hull House settlement and a rental for rooms and apartments. But it deteriorated until 1970 when a group of concerned citizens formed Historic Denver, Inc., and raised funds to restore the house to its former glory. Today, visitors can tour the house and view exhibits, furniture, china, stained glass windows and photographs that interpret Molly's life, Victorian Denver and historic preservation.

    Head to elegant Larimer Square for shops, people-watching, and dinner. Larimer Square is the city’s oldest and most historic part of town where the first gold prospectors from the Old West era staked their claim.

    There’s a relaxed vibe and it’s the perfect part of town to chill into your weekend in Denver. You’ll find hip coffee bars, urban boutiques and exclusive stores, and maybe some street performers. For dinner, take your pick from a great range of chef-led restaurants or one of the many different cuisines available.

    This is an excellent park with a lake, play areas, large fields, jogging / biking trail, and small botanical garden. My only gripe would be the port a johns need to be serviced more frequently and the jungle gym, which was apparently vandalized, needs to be repaired.

    I was very satisfied with my first trip to this museum and plan to be back when visiting Denver in the future. The salon presentations made great sense to me, giving a very organized and visually appealing review of art and design in the recent century.
    Kirkland’s work was new to me, but I found his early watercolors and most recent dot paintings my favorite.

    Very nice aquarium, though smaller than we expected! Great displays! Great hsark and stingray exhibits. Great jelly fish tank! Well worth the cost!

    Fun to visit for the mile high step - we visited when the building was shut for Labor Day weekend but it was still a good place to visit for the views of the city. There was an extremely hot market in the park nearby - it was boiling in early September.
