  • Cool stuff to do but better venue for families with younger children. Would still go back for some of the rotating exhibits.  more »
  • Something for everyone! You can interact with many of the exhibits, so it's a good place to bring restless kids. They have a special toddler area, musical instruments to play, live animal exhibits (in...  more »
  • We love the museum. My son talks about it for weeks after every time we go. We always find a new thing to play with or explore and it’s always a new experience. So lucky to have this in our town!  more »

  • A lot of the time when you go to a hands on museum quite a few exhibits are out of order. I was happy to say that very few were malfunctioning during our visit. My favorite part was all the musical instruments that we're available for play and the jam room. I enjoyed watching my husband and daughter play together. The price was also very affordable and we enjoyed the couple of hours spent there.
  • My family loves coming to the Discovery Museum! All the exhibits are very hands on and allow kids to really explore some cool concepts. The young child section is a blast, with water play and building areas. The music garage is fun to explore for all ages. It introduces many different instruments and allows you to play around with them.
  • This place is so amazing to spend a few hours at. The membership is reasonable, and depending on the level you also get admission to the Denver Museum of Nature and Science. I have a 1 year old, and the Foco museum is such a fun place to her. Everything there is made to be played with, or explored, and she always has a blast. 10/10 would recommend this to anyone and everyone!
  • Definitely exciting experience for children, Toddler's zone is not much but age under 2 get in for free so it's worth it. Adult fee is $9. Food and drinks are not allowed to bring in. They have water fountains and I'm not sure about toddlers bottles. Discovery about animals(insects) music, lights, sounds and more.
  • This place is good for a quick day trip with your little. If you have kids under 8 but older than 3, some of the activities are too young or too big for them. My little is between those ages and the toodler area was too young for him and most of the instruments were too big (and wasn't interested). Also, some things were too academic for him. We only stayed for and hour or two. We did have fun, but unsure if the price is worth the amount of time we spent at the museum.
