Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    A beautiful and informative museum for all ages. Do check out the 3d Theatre. Enjoyed the hours I stayed and checked out every floor and exhibit.

    A lovely museum which is really in two buildings attached by a walkway. I particularly enjoyed the decorative arts area. They have a large and wonderful gift shop with many interesting and unusual items. Lockers are available for $ .25 but it took me a few minutes to figure them out. I had looked online for details for our visit and when we arrived the prices on the board by the cashiers did not match what I saw online. It occurred to me that those prices were for general admission plus the special exhibit. It did not list general admission only but I asked for it plus senior discounts and was given it.

    Nice railway station in the center of Denver. Gives a good impression of the history of Denver. Inside the station you have a variety of shops, Snackbars and Coffeeshops. The station is still used as it's purpose.

    Awesome experience that I recommend to any whiskey lover visiting Denver! The tour is fun and educational and the whiskey is delicious. Make sure to stop at their bar after for a cocktail (or two). The staff are always friendly and helpful.

    We took the guided tour. It was great. The guide was very informative. We not only learned the history the house in Denver,but also her history from when she first came to Colorado.

    Free guided tours that last an hour are available weekday at 11:00, 12:00, and 1:00. Very interesting and entertaining. You can walk to the top near the rotunda and go outside.....100 steps to get there. You must have a guide to go up. Beautiful views from there. Just below that is the "attic" which houses an interesting museum. It is an easy walk from the capitol the catch the free 16th St. Mall shuttle which we took to the end and walked back the other way. The capitol building also is beside Civic Center Park which has a few nice bronze statues.

    Amazing - well documented variety of transportation. This museum has diecast collections and bicycles to motorcycles, tractors, cars, delivery vehicles, fire trucks, railroad engines and airplanes. It was a real treat to walk through and see all the different means of transportation.

    I went to see the Frank Lloyd Wright exbibit. It was well worth the visit, and I found the permanent collection rooms equally interesting. The collection is well-curated and the building is architectually interesting. The staff were pleasant and helpful.

    Visited mid-August, and they had only recently reopened for tours. Based on older reviews, you used to just be able to show up at certain times, now you have to write on for tickets. They have a couple of tour times during the day, and you list your preferred date/times. Only complaint is that it wasn't until almost the date that we were told we had tickets, so if you are in a limited schedule be aware that you might not be able to lock things in very far in advance.

    Informative tour, interesting historical exhibits. You can see into the minting floor, so on our morning there were streams of pennies running along the conveyer belt.

    Keep in mind this is a government building. So there is security, you can't have any bags, and no photos inside. Be sure to be early as they tell you, they won't let in people who are late.

    As others have mentioned, you get an uncirculated penny, and penny blank. There's also a nice gift shop.

    Plenty of parking in near by garages.

    We were in town and deided to go last minute. We had a party of 8. Bought tickets to Pretty Woman the day before our performance, so only seats left were the balcony. Would skip the balcony experience in the future as you really are far away from the stage. Parking was easy and theatre was nice. Definietly will go again, just not the balcony.
