We enjoyed our visit here and the exhibits we view all very well done. It can be pricey if you want to view all features of the venue (Imax and the special "Mummys" exhibit was also present at the time. To do all this was a little costly I thought.

My wife and I are members of the museum and went recently to see "CHOCOLATE: THE EXHIBITION". It was fascinating to see how chocolate is made and the different products. We also saw the Imax movie National parks Adventure which was also excellent. There is a great gift shop where we usually pick up a souvenir or book of interest.... More

Always a mainstay in Denver as it is always intriguing us with new exhibits ... such as MUMMIES. Figure needing most of the day unless you want to go to just one exhibit. We used Uber to take us from Union Station to the museum and back. Easy access, plenty of escalators, elevators, stairs and plenty of places to sit... More

Enjoyed the variety of exhibits. Paid for the special mummy exhibit and was not disappointed. After about 12 the place was overrun by unsupervised school kids but that doesn't detract from the quality of the experience. Just too much to absorb in a single visit. Need to come back.

Plenty to do to fill a whole day. Pay your admission package to include the activities that you want to do. This takes some studying. Get the family to walk around the outside of the building to see the sculptures, while one parent decides what to include. staff are very helpful. Lockers are also in foyer. IMAX - Africa and...

This is by-far, one of the best museums around. The mineral collection here is outstanding and very interesting, if you are into that kind of thing. I remember the dioramas from my childhood and they are still fantastic, so life-like, a great way for everyone to see what animals should look like in their environment. The dinosaur exhibit is good... More

I went on a free Bank of America day. My friends said this is the place to see. Loved all the exhibits. They made some great "snapshots" of life with different animals and areas around the world. Dinosaurs were awesome and huge. Everything is well done.
