Our reciprocal museum membership back home got us in free to the Children’s Museum of Denver, so we went 3 days in a row. The first two days I had to drag Toddler out kicking and screaming. “Wait! I want to see something else!” he wailed at the top of his lungs. Luckily, he wasn’t the only child to do this upon exiting. As you can guess, kids really like this place! The third day, I gave him more warning. I said, “OK, it’s time to go. What would you like to do again before we go?” After going through the rabbit hole again, he walked out calmly and bubbling about how much fun he had.
There were several exhibits he enjoyed; painting, puppet show, hearing the heartbeats of different animals, playing on a real fire engine. But, the real highlights were the grocery store/restaurant, and the forest.
I highly recommend this as a place for the under-8 set. It’s also very near the Downtown Aquarium, Six Flags, and Confluence Park if you’re planning a day in the city.
