Lots of interactive activities, very clever spaces, totally caters to the kids. Parking is free, once you tell the parking lot attendant at the aquarium you are going to the Children's Musuem

While the intent is good, this museum needs a lot of work and help. They hold several fundraisers but I have not seen much improvement over the course of 6 years. I wonder where the funds are going. I would recommend this museum for children ages 2-4 and that's about it.

Erica ~

Thank you for your review of the Children's Museum of Denver. We greatly appreciate and value feedback from our guests. I'm not sure when the last time you visited, but we've recently made a lot of changes! We installed a new physics exhibit, Kinetics, a rocket science exhibit, 3, 2, 1...Blast Off, and revamped the Art Studio and the Assembly Plant. Many of these great changes have been geared specifically to serve the older kids (6-8). And, our summer exhibit opens this Saturday, June 15. We'd really love it if you'd head back and check out all the improvements and additions!

Thank you again for your feedback.

We had a great time... 3 little ones under 5. We also took the grandparents. They have so many interesting things like the climbing areas.

Very hands on for kids. Easy to get involved. So many different activities for kids to do. The shopping one, and the fun climbing areas are always favorites.Also it is hard for kids to run off, without an adult noticing.
