  • My husband and I toured the Cell free as part of Doors Open Denver. When I think about this exhibit, I think in Red. So many graphics were in red. Glitzy, loud with space-age type of doors. Terrorism ...  more »

  • I'm still trying to figure out what the purpose of this exhibit really is...It felt like propaganda by the Republican Party/Fox News to show you how gruesome terrorism is, without really teaching you ...  more »

  • The CELL was a great educational experience. They do a great job at taking something that is difficult for most people to understand and breaking it down in a way that makes it interesting and make sense. The front staff was very friendly. Great prices too, especially for students.
  • horrifying, fear mongering. waste of money, waste of time. i am astonished as to how this building is considered educational, and as to how it is funded. also, the bathroom sink didn't work.
  • I wanted to learn more about terrorism, but other than the exhibit on what to look for in suspicious activity, and the screen about terrorist cells around our country the rest of the museum was disappointing. Seeing pictures of the lone terrorists and bombing devices and the loud bombing movie did not do anything but scare me and my family. Was that the point? To be afraid? How is this Museum funded? By the way the Museum does have an entrance fee, and some of the bloody loud exhibits are not for children.
  • While I was in the downtown Denver area I noticed that this place had a sign out front that said "free admission" so I was like OK and went to check it out. I was expecting it to be like any other museum with displays and videos, but that's where it went off the rails. The first room is set up museum style but after you go through the big doors you are bombarded with fear mongering, giant video displays surround you with graphic pictures and videos of death, destruction, explosions, and violence. I believe the goal of this place is to either make you become xenophobic, never step foot outside ever again or for you to become super paranoid and suspicious of every and anybody.
  • I tried to go there twice last week. Both times there was a sign on the door saying it was closed for a private event. However, before I went the second time I had checked their website and there was nothing on their schedule. What a waste of time and effort!
