With exhibits featuring everything from dinosaur bones to Egyptian mummies, the Denver Museum of Nature & Science is a great place for budding scientists of all ages. It focuses on six major areas of scientific research: anthropology, zoology, geology, health sciences, paleontology and space science. Determine your physical condition in the Hall of Life or experience the different stages of Earth's development by taking the Prehistoric Journey before watching a film about space travel at the IMAX Theater. One Yelp.com user writes: "From prehistoric creatures to the outer edges of space, each exhibit transports you to another time and place … with a planetarium, IMAX, and touring exhibits to choose from this place is the perfect place the expand your mind!"

Entry to the IMAX and the planetarium will add a couple dollars to the price.
