With free parking and a location right next to the Denver Zoo and City Park, the Denver Museum of Nature & Science is a destination attraction for locals and tourists alike. One of the museum's more popular exhibits is "Space Odyssey," which simulates a journey through the galaxy.
Families will appreciate the accessible and engaging treatment of science, as well as the special kid-centered programming, though the museum puts on special events for grown-ups, as well. For example, on the third Thursday of every month, DMNS hosts the Science Lounge, an adults-only events where locals can enjoy music, free food, a few drinks at the pop-up bar, as well as engage in science activities and displays on topics like geology, genetics, and poisonous animals. Don’t miss the SCFD Community Free days, which grant free admission to all the regular exhibits (check the website for upcoming dates).
