We expected the usual dumbed-down science approach aimed at the middle school crowd and that was true of the astronaut section, but the mineral and rock section was fantastic and geared toward all ages without being condescending.
This section was set up as a mine. The entrance was framed in timbers and the displays were set in the walls of the mine tunnel so that one has the feeling of walking into a working mine. Emphasis is on Colorado's indigenous rocks minerals and gem stones. My wife and I spent the entire afternoon there and loved it. Highly recommended for all, but particularly for "rock-hounds."
