Dinosaur exhibit with local connections was extremely well done. Planetarium show was worth doing as well. Space exhibit was very interactive and more geared towards children. We were able to see everything of interest to us in about 3 hours, but if we had more time, I would have done an imax show. Overall, nice place that was worth the admission cost.

fun for a visit - minerals and gems/ dioramas are always a fave - but don't bother coming here on the weekends, there are a ton of kids- unless you have a bunch of your own, you will feel frustrated....facilities are a bit dated -the exhibits are a bit dated too.

This is a wonderful museum. We have been members for a few years. They hold may member only events which are amazing. Early previews of exhibits, coctail mixers, etc. Very quality exhibits. My boys have both attend this museum as school field trips as well and the staff does a great job at helping out and organizing the visits. The location is very clean. You could spend a whole day there exploring.

This was recommended to us by family who live in Denver. The Heath Hall (not sure that's the correct name) was FABULOUS. There are so many activities including a lab that is wonderful. We spent a few hours in that exhibit alone so we didn't go to that many other exhibits but the Hall of Animals was also very interesting...Overall a very good museum

My husband and I were members here for many years before moving to the mountains. Their exhibits are always informative, and often employ hands-on fun while learning. This is a fun place for everyone in the family, as it has offerings for all ages.
