The Children's Museum of Denver offers a giant space where kids can play and develop. All of the Museum's exhibits are designed to target the children's motor and sensory skills, their creative thinking, problem solving and to teach them about the world. Events from sleepovers, trick or treating and birthday parties to Easter egg hunts, story times and play times are held here along with regular educational programs.
Things to Do
- The Museum has a whole bunch of play spaces for your child to explore. They can play at being a fireman at the Fire Station No. 1, a vet at the kid-sized veterinary clinic or learn how to shop for healthy products at the Farmers Market.
- The creatively inclined can express themselves at the Art Studio while those who want to be let free to explore nature can do so at the Big Backyard exhibit.
- For the youngest learners there is the Center for the Young Child, a safe environment with a pond, a meadow and a village where they can practice their developing skills.
