When I was 10 my sister insisted we go here on our family vacation when all I had on my mind was Elitch's. Since then my memory persisted and as an adult I have been drawn back many times. You will be too!

The museum is an awesome place to spend a couple hours. If you have younger children, the dinosaur exhibit "Prehistoric Journey" is one of the best around. It beats New York City museum. There are interactive displays and the docents are remarkable! My kids also...More

There is always so much to see. I enjoy how they present all the exhibits. The IMAX always has very enjoyable, interesting and detailed information. The Imax at times also shows wonderful movies at a very good price.

I spent all Saturday morning in this museum with some friends and I am glad to say that I saw some embalmed animals that I have never seen in my life. To visit for sure if you are in Denver and have free time.

Great, educational trip for a cold Saturday. Exhibits are informative and interesting. While the space and dinosaurs seemed to be most popular with the kids I preferred the native American portion. Egypt was way too but overall it was worth the money. Planetarium and Imax...More
