  • I visited the Denver Museum of Nature & Science in August 2015. The museum is three stories filled with exhibits, science and interactive activities. I spent over two hours at this museum and I enjoye...  read more »

  • our visit started weeks before when I sent an email to ask about if they could store our luggage while we visited... we received 2/3 very helpful and friendly emails back making sure I had all the inf...  read more »
  • Our favorite Denver attraction! Our kids love it more than the Denver Zoo. It is very large and well organized, something for everyone and the additional rotating exhibits never fail to impress. We tried the restaurant (T-Rex Cafe) this trip and we were all VERY impressed with the menu selection and quality, as well as the affordable pricing. Just over $4 gets a hot children's meal with a generous portion, 2 sides, and a drink! The grilled items are fresh and delicious and the salad bar was top notch, very impressive. We bought a membership which has paid for itself in just 2 visits!
  • Very clean museum with quite a few nice attractions. If you love animals, this place is perfect for you! Lots of animal displays from all over the world. Mummy display was very small but still interesting! The IMAX 3D experience was top notch. Definitely my favorite part of the visit. The museum has a small cafe with reasonably priced snacks and drinks as well.
  • I asked if there was a military discount when purchasing my tickets. The person behind the counter said yes. When I showed her my VA ID, she very rudely told me "our discount only applies to active duty and retired military." I have no problem with this but the Denver Zoo right next door offers their military discount to all veterans so I don't think I was asking for anything that justifies the way I was treated. She actually made me feel bad for even asking. The discount isn't that great anyways so I don't really see the need to be so strict and rude about it. For as much as they charge for tickets you would think that they would have updated their permanant exhibits even just a little bit in the past 15 years I've been going to there. Disappointing.
  • Best museum experience I have ever had! Very thoughtfully designed sections. Wide range of categories covered, from bugs to big bang! Museum staff is amazing as well. Had very detailed discussions with two of the curators. And to put cherry on the top, they have good cafeteria. Anything less than a day here is not sufficient!
  • So worth the money! My husband, 6 month old, and I spent all day here and we still had to rush at the end to see everything. The exhibits were phenomenal and the food in the cafĂ© was tasty. Will definitely come back if I'm in the Denver area.
