  • Great museum to have in the area!! Not only is it an awesome museum, you get some really pretty views outside as well! We got there a little late (4:15 PM) and they close at 5 PM. I went and asked them if they would discount ticket prices for me and the staff told me that they could do kid prices for us or we could wait 15 minutes and it's free after 4:30 PM. So naturally, we waited. We went to browse through the gift shop which was super cute with lots of fun stuff. They also have a little coffee stand as well! We were super stoked about getting to go in for free but I will warn you now, have a game plan for what you want to see the most. 30 minutes is definitely not enough time to see everything. We went into the gem exhibit first which was really cool. Then we sped walked to the wildlife exhibit and ran through the mummies really fast. Then we went to see the dinosaurs and we lingered in there for a lot longer than planned but it was so cool! We also managed to go into the expedition health exhibit right when it was closing so we got the whole exhibit to ourselves but were seriously running around through there which sucked since most of the exhibit is interactive. If you live in the area and money is tight, I would say go to one exhibit everyday for the last 30 minutes. Other than that, I would just pay to go!

  • My kids are 5, 3, and 1 and they all can spend at least 4 hours in the Discovery Zone learning and having fun the whole time. We enjoyed many of the other exhibits in the museum. I especially loved the Egyptian mummies. The Space exhibit and Body exhibit are great for school aged children, but mine aren’t quite ready for the whole thing. They have a small section in each for smaller kids in case you have older kids and younger kids. The Discovery zone is absolutely amazing thought and now that we have seen most of the museum it’s our go to place for hours of fun. When the weather is nice we like to pack a lunch and eat it in the lawns or on the sky view terrace. The view of Denver and the Mountains is gorgeous!

  • Pretty cool place! I lived in Denver for years, tried going a few times before but could never find parking (Body Worlds were very popular apparently). This time I managed to find the spot a few few from the main entrance - go figure. Anyway, a pretty cool museum - lots of amazing exhibits. A must for any family if their kids are into dinosaurs. Very cool mineral exhibit as well - it feels like you're in an old mine.

  • Loved this place as a kid and love it still as an adult! Definetly set aside a full day so you can explore the whole thing and play with all the interactive exhibits. I wish I had brought snacks with me but they do have a cafe with basics (pizza, yogurt, juice, soda), its pricey but hey were you expecting otherwise? I loved the gem sculptures and the mummy exhibits so make sure you make your way to the 3rd floor! As a kid I remember the massive size of the dinosaur bones and was not disappointed as an adult! Overall great way to spend a day learning and enjoying this cool museum.

  • This is an amazing place to take the family. Exhibits are well done and very informative. I highly recommend getting a family pass for the year, it is worth it! Planetarium was wonderful. Took my kids this past Saturday and they are begging to go again already. Recommend packing a lunch to save money. The cafe can add up quickly.
