This was a business trip that gave me some free time. I explored the Mummies exhibit which was very interesting. There were a lot of things to see an explore. The views outside of the museum were awesome! I'd love to go back next time I'm in Denver.

Went to this Art Museum for my daughter's 16th birthday. Works are well organized and there is plenty of space to prevent over crowding. Well kept and clean facilities. Colorado resident for general admission are $10 and anyone under 18 was free. Due to the Star wars costume exhibit there were numerous children running about and creating noise.

Had a very pleasant visit to the Denver Museum of Nature & Science on a nice sunny March day. Even with multiple school groups in the museum, it did not seem crowded. We used the Denver Culture Pass for our admission, which was a great deal. The museum has some fantastic dioramas, which look like they were just recently installed,... More

The traveling exhibits make it desirable to visit DMNS throughout the year. The docents are also knowledgeable and eager to add to your visit. Parking can be a problem (popular museum), so factor that in when planning.

Loved this Museum. The dioramas were well done and for those who are squeamish about the thought of them using real animals, they have a scene that demonstrates how they create the animals using plaster casts. Excellent variety of animals, gems and stones, dinosaurs, mummies, space and solar system. There are plenty of interactive sites for kids as well as... More

I have been several times to see various presentations. I am never disappointed. The Theater is comfortable and the volunteers are extremely helpful. Their restaurant is suited to many appetites and easy to access and get around in whether you are a couple or a group. Also, their exhibits are always extremely well done.
