Denver Museum of Nature & Science
This museum is one of the city's most popular attractions, drawing almost two million visitors a year. There are stunningly detailed and vast permanent displays on North American Indians, Egyptian mummies, dinosaurs, and minerals. The museum also hosts such traveling exhibits as Ramses II, and Imperial Tombs of China. An IMAX cinema, gift shop and cafe are also on-site.
This place is awesome, we took our kids there and they had a blast. The best part is that MILITARY IS FREE ADMISSION. I would recommend the place to everyone I know. If you have to pay full price it is WORTH THE MONEY.
The staff/volunteers are very friendly and helpful. Really cool "Lifestyle" exhibit personalized to each visitor if elect to partake. Lots of Dinosaurs since the Denver area has many fossils. Big minerals and gems exhibit. Small mummy room but still fascinating. Hands on Space exhibit that everyone got into. I did expect a little more but I am used to Field Museum in Chicago.
We had a good time at the Museum. If you plan to do the museum, the Imax, and the Planetarium, be sure to plan on being there from open to close. There is alot to see in the museum itself. When we were here they had the Titanic exhibit (which you have to pay extra to see....it was a little confusing figuring out everything you wanted to see and how much it would cost) The Titanic Exhibit was awesome and worth the extra money. We also watch the Imax Movie on the Titanic. By the time we were done with this and the musuem portion, we didn't have time to do the Planetarium. My favorite part of the basic musuem was the area that dealt with life and health. You get a life card and can put it into different tests throughout the exhibit and at the end you get a printed sheet that tells you about your info on your health.
I love going to this museum because it is so interesting. I have been there twice on school field trips and the teachers like taking us because we learn a lot of new things.
The exibits are awesome and I would recommend this museum to everyone.
The whole family enjoyed the museum, the family age range 10-42 years. Great information, exhibits and overall presentation. The Life Hall was very educational for the whole family, but the teenagers really enjoyed the most.
This was a great place to take our children. They did not realize at the time that they were learning new things and was very intreged by many different dispays and areas of the museum. From a week long vacation in Denver this was the place that they keep telling everyone about. We live outside of St. Louis and all the attractions are free,so having to pay for any activity was a downfall.
We had a great time with our kids at the Museum. We went to IMAX and saw a film about Greece. The kids also loved the Dino's. One word of advice. The food and drinks are very expensive (like any amusement park) so take your own water.
