  • Excellent place for family visits. After 1 trip we became members. We loved the Play Ball exhibit and the history of Colorado. We recommend natives and transplants visit at least yearly to learn about the culture and history of our beautiful state. Reminder street parking is usually a challenge and the meters now take credit cards in addition to coins. It is across from Denver Art Museum (DAM) and within walking distance of several other downtown attractions and eateries, we recommend making a day of it.
  • Very interactive museum with different exhibitions. I particularly liked the recovery of the history of the original inhabitants of Colorado - the Ute people. Their traditions and civilization is well depicted and explained and the effort to keep them alive and connect into today's world is well supported. Equally, the hall with the 100 significant objects representing the history of Colorado is a marvelous and innovative idea. Highly recommended for all visitors to Denver!
  • The traveling exhibits are always interesting. The snow boards were very well put together and decorated. The kids art show impressed not only myself but my family. To see how many amazing young artists of all different mediums are in Colorado.
  • Really cool museum to learn about Colorado and its history. Parking is available on street at meters and there are parking garages around too. The price is affordable. Located next to good resturaunts and bars on Broadway. I recommend this place to all visitors.
  • Enjoyed an evening here for a gala! It is beautiful for an event, however the dining area can feel crowded and gets hot. Other than that I absolutely loved the main entrance and rooms outside to explore!
