We went for the dinosaur exhibit, which was very good because it focused on the colorado, Wyoming area. But then we wandered into the diorama exhibits and we were blown away. The hand painted domed displays, the taxidermy and the attention to detail of the plants and flowers was truly amazing. Teenagers actually put down their phones for awhile. Look... More

It was a very crowded day at this museum but there are many great exhibits. Our favorites were the gems and rock. The animal skeleton exhibit was also good. We watched an IMAX show on national parks that was interesting but I've seen better.

Those young and old can find appreciation and interest in many of the exhibits. The quality and uniqueness really sets it apart from other museums. The gift shop is also a must see for the little ones. The rock collecting is definitely a favorite.

Having this museum so close to me makes for a great place to go any day, anytime! Traveling exhibits, shows and the hundreds of permanent exhibits! We keep a membership.

The Denver Museum of Nature and Science is a great place to take your children/grandchildren to learn something new about all kinds of things. They have special exhibits all of the time that are interesting and fun. The planetarium is a great way to relax and watch the night stars in the various shows that they feature. With all of...

Always love to visit this museum. Always try to do a 3D movie when there - they are the best. Have seen some very unique exhibits - Bodyworks (years ago) was my favorite!

Enjoyable and nice facility. We tend to go the museum of nature & science once a year or so to see whatever special exhibit is taking place and then to wander around. This year we went to the Viking exhibit. Overall it wasn't bad, but given that we went to Norway last year and saw significantly better exhibits it's not... More

We love this museum! I have a 5 year old and he always asks to go to this museum. Every area has something fun for kids other then just looking at the exhibits. Our favorites are space, animals, and of course discovery. My boy can easily spend 5 hours here. Also make sure to look for the hidden leprechauns in... More
