Children's Museum of Denver
Kids will love the Children's Museum of Denver for its engaging activities that allow young imaginations to soar free. Paint yourself silly in The Art Studio, frolic in the Bubbles exhibit, and learn the ropes of animal care at Ready Vet Go! The museum accommodates children of all ages, even the littlest ones, at its Center for the Young Child. Experience learning like never before, and be sure to check the calendar for a list of upcoming classes and events that offer a more hands-on approach to learning.
Discover the fascinating world of underwater creatures alongside your children at the Downtown Aquarium. Soak in the sites of the colorful Coral Lagoon exhibit before heading to the murky waters of Shipwreck, where you'll see how an underwater ecosystem might adapt to a sunken ship in its seabed. Catch the Mystic Mermaids show, an interactive performance where you'll see these mythical maids swimming to the beat alongside some of the aquarium's finest sea creatures. After you work up an appetite, spend the rest of the afternoon over a family-friendly lunch at one of the many restaurants in the complex.
