Top Rated Attractions in Denver

Search Radius (Miles)
Denver Museum of Nature & Science

This museum is one of the city's most popular attractions, drawing almost two million visitors a year. There are permanent displays on North American Tribes, Egyptian mummies, dinosaurs, and minerals, all stunningly detailed and vast. The museum also hosts traveling exhibits such as Ramses II and Imperial Tombs of China. An IMAX cinema, gift shop and cafe are also on-site.

Children's Museum of Denver

This is a place where a child's natural urge to experience the world hands-on comes together with art and science projects, building materials and imagination. The museum includes nine interactive Playscapes including the CMD Fire Station #1, My Market, Center for the Young Child, Under My Feet and Over My Head, The Assembly Plant, Making the Team, Arts a la Carte, Around the Block, and Alphabet Soup. There are also several programs, activities and special events held throughout the year. Check the museum's website for a complete listing of upcoming events.

Denver Public Library

This library, a post-modern structure full of turrets and odd geometrical shapes, is a bastion of knowledge. Internally, the academic atmosphere of each study area is indicative of individual moods. Six of the ten floors of the library are open to the public. Keeping with the tradition set in 1894, the library still has a world-class children's facility. The library is a regional depository for government publications. It offers extensive genealogical resources as well as historical books, photographs, art, and memorabilia chronicling the American West. The library also offers fiction and non-fiction texts, periodicals and computers allowing free Internet access. Tours are available.

The Denver Puppet Theater

If you are in search of a break from the normal kid diversions of arcades and such, bring your children here for a few hours of refreshingly different fun and amusement. Be sure to arrive at least a half-hour prior to show time to give your kids time to "play" with the puppets and roam freely around the puppet-making workshop. Owner Annie Zook has a wonderful talent for bringing dolls and puppets to life for children. Each show lasts about 45 minutes.

Wings Over The Rockies Air & Space Museum

This museum occupies Hangar Number One on Lowry Campus, formerly known as the Lowry Air Force Base. Here, visitors can view 31 aircraft, from a World War II Corsair to the B1A Bomber. The museum also houses extensive exhibits on the history of Lowry Air Force Base, World Wars I and II, former President Dwight D. Eisenhower and even the Hubbell Telescope. A display on the science of flight includes a space station simulator.

Colorado State Capitol Building

Modeled after the venerated United States Capitol, the Colorado State Capitol is a neoclassical beauty constructed using Colorado white granite. Standing exactly one mile above sea level, the building meticulously epitomizes Colorado's Gold Rush through the Gold Leaf on its striking dome. Quintessential illustrations on the stained glass windows further immortalize the capitol's respect for the state it calls home. The Colorado State Capitol hosted its first general assembly in 1894, and it was inscribed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1974.
