I visit the DMNS often. I often go with my family and we can see their exhibits over and over again because they are so well done and interesting. We particularly enjoy the dioramas, the dinosaurs, and the space exhibit. Highly recommend the traveling exhibits...More

We love this place. The kids always have a great time when we visit. The Egyptian mummies exhibit was a highlight. So was the history of mining in the state.

We had a great time at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science. The dinosaur exhibit is excellent and many volunteers to teach interesting facts that we never knew. Big smiles from all the kids showed this was a 5 star day!

There’s a great variety of displays and the volunteers are always eager to answer questions and share interesting information. The kids section is especially great, though it’s extremely crowded on free days!

This place was great! We went for the Viking Exhibit which was fun and very well done. We ended up walking through most of the rest of the museum before it got too crowded. Go early to avoid the crowds. This is a great museum!

This museum features a wonderful space exhibit/interaction area. I would love to see it expanded some. There's a place where you can walk through and learn about mining in Colorado, with LOTS of examples of minerals and gems. Very educational visit. They were also featuring...More
