There are plenty of things to do with your family in Denver Colorado. Here are just a few of the best.
Denver has not one, but two children’s museums: WOW! Children’s Museum, with activities, hands-on exhibits, and activities for children of all ages, and The Children’s Museum of Denver, which has a 3.5 story climber, a 6-foot bubble that you can step into, and interactive exhibits where you can sculpt clay or learn to power a hot air balloon.
Denver Museum Of Nature & Science
If your children didn’t have enough educational fun at the children’s museums, they’ll love the Denver Museum of Nature & Science, where kids can catch an IMAX movie or a planetarium show, check out the discovery zone, or see exhibits on mummies, wildlife, and space exploration.
Lovers of sea life won’t want to miss the Downtown aquarium. This aquarium contains more than a million gallons of aquarium exhibits that present a look at aquatic ecosystems around the globe, such as the Stingray Reef touch tank. With more than 500 species of sea animals, children will love learning, exploring, and touching these aquatic wonders. There’s also plenty to do, with the Nautilus Ballroom, family amusements, plus great food to enjoy at the Dive Lounge and the Aquarium Restaurant.
Goldstrike Colorado Gold Experience
A trip to Denver wouldn’t be complete without experiencing a piece of Colorado history. You can take a guided gold prospecting tour and learn how to find (and keep) your very own gold. You can try basic panning, sluicing, or test out some high tech gold recovery equipment, including highbanking and advanced motorized suction dredging!
All these activities are just the tip of the iceberg for family fun in Denver. There are enough entertainment, educational, and amusement attractions to turn your trip to Colorado into an incredible adventure.
