When we travel around North America for my husband’s job we love visiting all the family friendly attractions nearby. Our family has so much fun checking out local sights. This past month we’ve been in the Denver, Colorado area. We love this area. There are so many fun places to visit, beautiful mountains, blue skies, and lovely parks. My kids loved the Denver Children’s Museum. In fact, less than a week after we visited, my daughter asked to go again. I must admit, we had a lot of fun.
The Children’s Museum of Denver offers the following amazing and fun exhibits:
- 3,2,1 Blastoff
- The Art Studio
- The Assembly Plant
- The Big Backyard
- The Center for the Young Child
- Click Clack Train Track
- Fire Station No. 1
- My Market
- Ready Vet Go!
Now, tell me the truth, that is a lot of exhibits, isn’t it? We had so much fun. Some of the exhibits, I asked my husband if he might be having more fun than than the kids. Really.
The Children’s Museum of Denver is open 7 days a week. Entrance ticket prices start at $7! For all the fun we had there, $7 really is a steal! The Children’s Museum of Denver is located at:
2121 Children’s Museum Drive
Denver, CO 80211
Yes, at the Assembly plant you can use recycled materials to create art! This exhibit and the Art Studio is where my Princess spent most of her time. She loved it. Do you see her using that child sized saw? That made me nervous, but she did great.
The Art Studio was actually my personal favorite exhibit. I used that leaf stamp (above) and made a fall picture too. After two brightly painted pieces of art, my Princess reluctantly moved on from this exhibit.
While my Princess was painting, my Little Man was next to her coloring on the window with approved window markers. Very fun!
If you are in the Denver area, and you have young children, you must add the Children’s Museum of Denver to your itinerary. You won’t be disappointed.
