I end up visiting DMNS at least 5 times a year. Every time there are new things to see and new exhibits to discover. The tickets are really reasonable, and the Membership is even better, and usually pays for itself in about 2 visits.
This last visit we went to the Expedition health exhibit and did the hands on experiments. The experiments lab was really well set up and all of the activities were easy to understand, while being fun for both children and adults.
After that we went to see Deep Sea in the IMAX theater. It was really well done and the 3D made you feel like you were right under the ocean. The films are just 1 hour long, which is really perfect if you have kids.
I look forward to going back in October when the Myth Busters Exhibit will be traveling through town. The preview for it looked really great.

The Mammoth exhibit is the most highly decorated exhibit in the museum. There is plenty for all age groups and different shows and experiences in each exhibit. Be sure to check out the world on a sphere in the space odyssey. The titan painting is a lot of fun too... even if you cant draw.

The planetarium was a bit pricey for the show even though the show itself was interesting. The sights were great but being an Egypt lover I wish that exhibit were bigger. Be prepared for children on the loose. I know it's a family place but they just run loose. Overall a good afternoon spent enjoying the museum.

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."

The exhibits are a little spread out but in general it was a nice museum to visit. There are lots of informative exhibits with local history and a cool space "wing". Very family friendly.
