What is there to do?

It's time to get WILD on your next Denver family day out, because were headed to CU South Denver Museum, a fascinating natural history museum filled with hands-on exhibits that offer a whole range of learning experience for kids.

Are you excited to explore the exhibits?

How about we start with Globeology, which is a one of a kind experience featuring seven significant biomes from all over the world (Kids, if you don't know what a biome is, then that's another great reason to visit, then you can learn!)

This 30,000 sq ft exhibits takes you around the world, exploring the depths of the oceans, to the Arctic Circle. You can observe the magic of the northern lights, explore majestic reefs, and find yourself nose to nose with polar bears!

You begin your journey in the canopy of a tropical rainforest, and continue with animatronics and special effects that form an immersive experience with the world's wildlife and habitats!

From the depths of the oceans, to the outer reaches in space, Science on a Sphere exhibit uses computer imagery to project information about Earth onto a sphere, showing a whole range of incredible scenes, including storms, climate change and ocean temperature.

Playful kids will love to learn that at CU South Denver Museum there is also Imagination Playground, featuring innovative playground equipment that transforms the play space into one of social development, movement and learning.

With so many more things to see at this Denver museum, you might just have to go and see it for yourselves!

C'mon kids, the wonders of the world are waiting!
