Our wonderful Denver Museum of Nature & Science offers families so much to see, do and explore. A visit can easily fill the entire day with wonder, knowledge and lots of fun. And, thanks to our city’s Scientific and Cultural Facilities District, you can expand your mind, not your wallet on the institution’s annual FREE Days.
The prestigious institution is known for its famous wildlife dioramas, extensive work in archeology, anthropology and paleontology, as well as human physiology, health, mechanics, astronomy and more.
And, with its revolving and traveling exhibits, young and old alike are bound to entertained, engaged and leave a little smarter. What more can you expect from a museum? It makes for a perfect day of quality time with friends and family.
The FREE admission is obviously very popular, so plan accordingly for parking and large crowds. It’s also important to note that the complimentary admission does not include any ticketed exhibits, IMAX or Gates Planetarium.
Currently, the regular admission price is $19.95 for adults, $14.95 for juniors (ages 3 to 18) and $16.95 for seniors 65+. (You can save $2 on admission, when you buy your tickets in advance online.) As a result, the FREE Days offer monumental savings. A family of four (two adults and two children) would save nearly $70!
