DENVER M– USEUM OF NATURE AND SCIENCE (Check out Photo Gallery for more pics!)
This museum will enlighten, delight and inspire you. The museum has 3 levels of displays and interactive activities. This facility is a smoke-free environment. Food and beverages are not allowed in the exhibits. From mummified bodies, flesh-eating dinosaurs and black holes this museum is a definite ‘Must See’ while in Denver!
The entrance is Level 1. Start out the day with a meal in the T-Rex Deli and Cafe and check out the museum shop. On Level 1 are the Insects and Butterflies exhibit, Space Odyssey, Gates Planetarium with your ticket to the Universe and Gems & Minerals. In the IMAX 3D Theater, I explored the world through an amazing experience. The 3D movie is viewed with special slip on glasses for the ultimate journey.
Level 2 includes the Discovery Zone where you can interact with computerized programs. The Expedition Health sends you on a journey through the human body. Large glass enclosures display North American Wildlife, Edge of the Wild, Bears & Sea Mammals, South Pacific Island, Australia and the North American Indian Cultures. “Full size”, authentic appearing animals and life-like enclosures will have you experiencing wildlife like you never have before. Every display is depicted in its own building area accessed by walkways and open atrium settings.
Level 3 displays Birds of the Americas, Prehistoric Journey, Egyptian Mummies, Northern & Rare Birds, South America, Bostwana, Africa and Explore Colorado. The Sky Terrace is the best view of Denver.
The exhibits are unforgettable. The massive enclosures and the research to re-create every scene is quite remarkable.
The museum department consultants can assist in scheduling meetings or other events which can accommodate 15 to 3,500 guests. Events are catered in with award-winning menus created by on-site culinary professionals.
