“Great place for all ages”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2013

Both the permanent and temporary exhibits are always outstanding. The volunteers are knowledgeable and enthusiastic. We bought a "grandparent" membership and took our toddler grandchildren for the first time. They had a great time in the kids' Discovery Area and also enjoyed the dinosaur exhibit and much more. We didn't take them to IMAX yet, but we love the shows there, The 3-D shows are especially impressive.

“Curiosity Landing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2013

The Denver Museum of Nature and Science is always great. They had a special event to watch Curiosity land on Mars and it was outstanding. Well organized even with the hundreds in attendance. Will continue to attend their special programs.

“Fantastic Interactive Fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2013

This museum has a large and diverse assortment of exhibits that offer something for everyone. The Expedition Life exhibit is fantastic....you can test your heart, walking, brain waves, eyes, etc... and get a printout of how well you did. Additionally there are several interesting labs that you can sit down and complete. The rest of the museum is excellent as well with many exhibits of animals and space. Personally, I found the gems (specifically native to Colorado) to be quite interesting...

“Awesome time!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2013

We have visited the Nature & Science Museum multiple times, the last being the landing of the Mars rover, Curiousity. The museum offers a wide variety of exhibits and they are both interesting and beautiful. The displays and exhibits are captivating and you leave wanting to go back in to look again!

“Excellent collection”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2013

It will take several days to really see all the Museum has to offer. Lots of heavily traveled visiting exhibits that are wort the time for sure, but the permanent displays of historical creatures is something not to be missed. And the gem and mineral exhibits are excellent!
