  • Our family loves this place! They have something for everyone. Our toddler loves the water play and trains and older kids love the musical instruments. We like the planetarium shows as well. I wish they added a few more new shows though. Definitely visit this place!
  • Excellent place to take kids of all ages. History, science, music and art. Price seemed great for the experience we had. We will return. 1 yr old and 4 yr old loved it
  • Kids absolutely love this place ! So many musical instruments set up for them to easily play. I especially enjoy the impressive local folsom points collection, largest outside the Smithsonian. Fort Collins history area has video interviews from long time residents. The water room is sort of a puzzle in how to set up "logs" to best irrigate the digital trees. I could spend hours in there !
  • Great museum with original and creative exhibits. I've always been impressed with their ability to keep all of the hands-on exhibits functioning. Black-footed ferrets, movies in the digital dome, local history, science, and music all come together to create a very memorable experience.
  • just saw something i would have gone to today.... the diy music and reactable remix... too bad they were at 10 and 11 am.... on friday.... what kinda music related anything happens during the work week before noon.... you must be confused with the wrong industry
