Denver Museum of Nature and Science

The Denver Museum of Nature and Science is more than just a Natural History Museum. In the Hall of Life, the human body is the focus. The Coors Mineral Hall has many gems and minerals on display. And the Space Odyssey exhibit explores our universe. But the place that used to be called the Denver Museum of Natural History still has plenty to offer in these areas. There is a wide variety of exhibits showcasing modern animals, and the Prehistoric Journey exhibit explores the history of living things.
