    Normally I don't like to spend a day touring a dark museum, but this is a must see. Yes there were school kids all over the place, but there were plenty of quiet times also. This place is huge & will hold a bunch people at the same time. There's plenty of seating around to rest your puppies. If the weather is agreeable, go to the observation on the top floor, to see a great overlook of Denver with the Rockies in the background. We did the IMAX (Lemurs) that we enjoyed & I think we saved a couple of bucks buying the tickets together. If I lived...Read More

    Great place to spend the afternoon with family. My 10 month old loved the kid zone area. We even got to participate in a drum class. He loved it. They have something for everyone!

    Visiting the Denver Museum of Nature and Science for the first time was overwhelming at first because I've never been to a museum that was so big. There were many exhibits that I couldn't get to with the time I had. But I enjoyed the Egyptian Mummy's, Discovery Zone, Expedition Heath, and the African exhibit. The Expedition Heath was my favorite because it was a hands on exhibit. It was fun to learn new things and use my body as an example. The Discovery Zone was where kids could be hands on and enjoy puppet shows. I felt that the discovery zone...Read More

    I give it a 3 and not a 2 for simple nostalgia. The elevator was TINY and took 20 minutes before we looked for a new one. The second elevator was down. We had to search around for the third. The food is highly priced. Admission is a little much for the size of the place. Military families no longer receive discount (which needs to be updated on their website). Carpets and information phones need repairs. The new Discovery Zone would have been nice had half of the stuff been working.

    We really enjoyed exploring the museum. It had all sorts of different exhibits that were very eye-opening, including lots of science history on Denver's surrounding area, different parts of the world, and even space. The kids part was really cool, too, with lots of little interactive experiments and games for the kids to learn more about living a healthy lifestyle.

The Expedition Heath was my favorite because it was a hands on exhibit. It was fun to learn new things and use my body as an example. The Discovery Zone was where kids could be hands on and enjoy puppet shows. I felt that the discovery zone is great for children because it teaches them to work together with other children. The African exhibit was interesting because the animals looked so real. It was like being in Africa with all the wild animals. The Egyptian Mummy exhibit was also a fun exhibit because it showed the side of Egypt that I've never seen before. Overall it was a great museum and it was fun in the process. I really enjoyed my time because all the employees were nice and very helpful. The layout of the museum wasn't to confusing it was easy to get to what exhibit that I wanted to go to. I loved this museum it was interesting, fun, and great for all ages.
