We have enjoyed going ourselves first and then taking visiting relatives with children for the many things to experience there.

Signed up for the family packet membership which includes 4 adults and children, in addition the Denver nature and science museum. Military discount was 15% off, making it $102 for entire family. Learn about music, animal, science, history, space and much more.

My husband, two kids (4 and 2) and I come here all the time. We love that it really is fitting for most age levels. The tot section is great (obviously for younger kids). But, even the rest of the museum is SUPER kid friendly....More

We used this as a rest spot for the kids on a trip from Denver and they enjoyed both the 360 degree movie as well as the museum. My oldest (10) especially liked the music section (drums, guitar, and DJ stuff) whereas my little one...More

Cool stuff to do but better venue for families with younger children. Would still go back for some of the rotating exhibits.

Something for everyone! You can interact with many of the exhibits, so it's a good place to bring restless kids. They have a special toddler area, musical instruments to play, live animal exhibits (including endangered black-footed ferrets retired from a nearby captive breeding program), dome...More

We love the museum. My son talks about it for weeks after every time we go. We always find a new thing to play with or explore and it’s always a new experience. So lucky to have this in our town!

When the weather outside is frightful, and the kids are not delightful, get out of the house and visit this museum. A lot of interactive displays to entertain them, and even a lot of adults. The museum is a little small, but a good variety....More

We love the Ft. Collins Museum of Discovery! We have three boys, ages 18, 11, 8 and each had a genuinely enjoyable experience. The exhibits are novel and varied. The museum is of moderate size, so 1.5 to 2.5 hours is sufficient time to make...More

This place is wonderful. It has a lot of interactive bits and pieces for kids (mostly about music) and a great place to visit if you're in the Fort Collins area. The place is not very big, but if you have the time to go...More
