Where are we going today?

Playing, creating, experimenting and exploring and GREAT way for kids to learn (and parents, we know you like them learning!) Which is why the Children's Museum of Denver should be on your list for your family day out!

The museum is a place where kids and adults alike can come and play, create, discover, explore, and of course - learn (but sometimes they don't realize they are!)

The Children's Museum of Denver has some amazing exhibits, all of which are completely interactive so kids can really get hands-on with them. Are they feeling creative? Then let them get MESSY at the Art Studio! They can be inspired and create all sorts of paintings and art work.

If your kids are more machines and tool lovers, then The Assembly Plant might be their thing. They can engineer buildings, design trucks and even construct helicopters - pretty cool! Or perhaps they just love...well...BUBBLES! The Bubbles exhibits is bubbling up, out and over in a place where kids can create and manipulate these fun, soapy scientific masterpieces of fun!

For those readers in the family they can sit, relax and enjoy The Book Nook, where they can become immersed in wonderful stories of brave heroes traveling through exotic and exciting lands. 

From a shopping market, a vet surgery, to and outdoor play adventure, you certainly will be wondering where all the time went, still not having seen everything! 

So grab the family and get ready for an exciting day of discovery, play, and revelations - it really is for the whole family!

    This was a perfect place to take my 10 month old son. It was difficult deciding what activities he would enjoy while visiting Denver. They have a great play area for children his age!

    I volunteer here but when I was little I used to come here a lot. Now when I'm volunteering I see so many kids having fun, their parents are having fun (most of them). All the staff are super friendly and so fun to be around. It makes me happy and proud to be a part of it.

    FILTHY!!! We went to the Children's Museum of Denver as soon as it opened and were absolutely disgusted at how dirty the infant section was. It looked like the vacuum they were using was broken because there were streaks of dirt everywhere. The pond looked like it hadn't been cleaned in months. There were stains all over it. After my son crawled around he had black curl hairs stuck to his clothes!!! I will never take my child there again. Also, when we paid, we were never given a map or explained anything. The girls behind the counter just continued...Read More

    My kids loved this place, especially the ball area! The different areas were pretty clean/picked up and I was impressed that the other parents were helping keep the areas neat. I don't think I saw one staff member during our 2 hour stay. We arrived shortly after 9 and left right as a big school group was coming in so there weren't a ton of people there when we were, which was nice.

    Great fun with the kids. Try your best to hit it during a down time since it can get very crowded. It seems as if they have a big addition in the works.
