Lovely museum

I loved this museum. The exhibits were great, especially the dinosaur exhibit and the one that takes you through the origin of life & evolution. A fun way to spend the afternoon!

We were initially attracted to the dinosaur exhibit but were equally entertained by the mummies! The museum also houses a great collection of gemstones and minerals, with placards that detail the physical and chemical changes these stones go through that differentiate them from each other. The IMAX movie was an awesome experience, as was the Planetarium show about black holes.

Free parking right in front of the building and there is parking below the ground. Located next to the zoo. Walked inside and and purchased tickets right at the kiosk in two seconds. I saw lots of couples, families, senior citizens and children. There is a large gift store and bistro / restaurant on site. There are 3 levels with... More

I took my adult sons to see the Mummies exhibit. I don't belong to the museum anymore since my sons grew up. The price tag for the exhibit was quite high without the membership. The exhibit was good but not great, especially at the non-member price. Feeling a bit disappointed.

I have been visiting the Denver Museum of Nature and Science since I was a small child and now I'm retired so obviously this represents a lot of years. It has always been, and still is, a great way to spend a day. The exhibits are top flight and amazingly displayed. There is something there for virtually every taste. They... More

We stopped at this museum on our way to the airport from a ski trip. Our 6 year old son LOVED it. I'm pretty sure he could have spent a week there. We had to leave to catch our flight so we did miss out on a few area. My husband and I also enjoyed the museum. Definitely recommend!

This museum did not disappoint, it has something for everybody, we visited all 3 floors, including the Imax 3d theatre and the planetarium. Parking is easy with plenty of places and has a small cafe area too.

I go to the museum 3 - 4 times a year. My kids love it (I have 4). My youngest likes the space exhibit. They have NASA kid suits and a make believe space shuttle cockpit. The water play display is nice too.

We visited during the holidays so it was pretty crowded but not unmanageable. Parking was easy in the attached garage. We purchased tickets for the Mummy exhibit which limits the amount of people in the area during your time slot. Very nice gift shops and decent cafe. Would have loved to spend more time seeing all the other exhibits but... More
