The Denver Museum of Nature and Science

Member Rating 3 out of 5 by camera-gal on September 14, 2000

The Denver Museum of Nature and Science is a great place to take the kids. They will learn so much and there's many hands-on activities to keep them busy.

General admission to the museum is $7.00 for adults and $3.50 for kids which is pretty reasonable compared to other science museums. If you want to see only an IMAX movie, it's $7.00 or $3.50 for kids, but the museum offers a combination discount for both the IMAX and admission for $11.00 and $7.00. Still not bad. The one in Kansas City is almost double that.

Throughout the year, the museum has special exhibits to attract people. One example is the current Vikings exhibition combined with a Vikings festival. Other exhibitions include the Ice Age and Voyages of Discovery. The Science and Nature Museum maintains permanent exhibits as well. These include anything from Explore Colorado to Egyptian Mummies.

The Phipp's IMAX is a big draw because of it's size--over four stories high.
