With exhibits featuring everything from dinosaur bones to Egyptian mummies, the Denver Museum of Nature & Science inspires learning in the young and young at heart. This impressive facility houses artifacts pertaining to a variety of scientific areas, including anthropology, zoology, geology, health sciences, paleontology and space science. Some of the more popular displays include the wildlife exhibit, which includes more than 90 habitat scenes and information on animals from around the world. Meanwhile, the hands-on Space Oddyssey area introduces travelers to the outer reaches of the galaxy and beyond.

Although some previous visitors note that the Denver Museum of Nature & Science is smaller than those found in other cities, many people who have spent time here say it's a worthwhile stop, especially if you've got kids in tow. "I was expecting our girls to be bored rather quickly, but I was mistaken," one TripAdvisor user said. "They were all over the place and went through the health and fitness portion 3 times!"

Located in City Park, just south of the Denver Zoo, the Denver Museum of Nature & Science is easily accessible via the No. 32 bus, which runs through downtown and LoDo into City Park. The museum is open seven days a week from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. General admission costs $13 for adults, $10 for seniors and $8 for children ages 3 to 18. The museum also offers daily shows and screenings in its planetarium and IMAX theater; you will have to pay extra to attend. You'll also have to part with extra cash to peruse temporary exhibits.
