The Museum is modern and spacious with well laid out and educational exhibits. The entry foyer has two giant dinosaurs above which i am sure exites all the children who visit.

The dioramas are the best I have ever seen in a museum! The realism and details put into the dioramas are most impressive. The map and signage is easy to follow. A great place to learn about Colorado

You'd never know this museum is 117 years old. It looks as if it has only been around about 20 years or so. Most of the exhibits and dioramas are in excellent shape. This is a family oriented place with a number of interactive exhibits....More

It was good to get out of the heat after the zoo. Pretty typical science museum. Very interactive for children.

I would recommend this museum for families, particularly those with younger children. A lot of the exhibits seemed to be child-focused (pictures and simple language to explain concepts, etc.) but they were still informative and interesting. The Vikings exhibit was incredible and there were plenty...More

Great area for young kids. They can dig for dinosaur bones and water area. They have a section for 2 and under also.

We went late in the day with the primary purpose of seeing the Viking exhibit. It was very well executed, a lot of information as well as artifacts.

This is a place that the family and I never get sick of. No matter how many times we go there is either a new exhibit, something we have not seen or something we want to do again. We have a membership and it is...More

How long does it take to go through museum and exhibits? Is the Vikings exhibits wheelchair accessible? Is it too noisy for hearing impaired individuals. What is the indoor temperature; is a jacket necessary?

I feel like I am repeating other's answers, but here it goes. We only spent about 4 hours at the museum, but we focused on the exhibits that interested us the most. As many have said you can spend as much or little time at... More

Is a free day a good time to go, or is it to hectic to be worth it? I.e., if I take my kids to the discovery zone, will they ever get a chance to play, or is it usually just too crowded? Thanks so much!

If you simply can't afford to go to the museum otherwise, then by all means, take advantage of the free day. That said, it is a total zoo on free day and I can confidently say you'll get more out of your visit when its less... More

Can you only purchase tickets online? Or can you show up to the museum and buy your tickets there for the day?
