The Children's Museum of Denver at Marsico Campus believes in kid-powered learning. Every day, our expertly designed exhibits and programs open doors for Colorado's curious young minds to express what they know and to discover, create and explore more - on their own terms.
Since 1973, the Children’s Museum of Denver has served the metro-Denver community as a learning institute dedicated to the education and growth of young children and their caregivers. The Museum provides rich play experiences and a dynamic learning environment for children to joyously learn through innovative and interactive Playscapes (hands-on exhibits), engaging daily programming and year-round special events. Last year, the Museum served more than 359,000 children and their grown-ups.
The Museum is currently under construction on a $16.1 million expansion to create a 9-acre campus and new experiences; doubling the size of the current facility. New exhibits include: The Art Studio, Altitude (a 3 ½ story climber), Water, Energy, The Teaching Kitchen, and Joy Park: An Outdoor Adventure. The expansion is slated for completion in late 2015.
The Children's Museum of Denver is a 501(c)(3), private non-profit organization, and a Tier II SCFD member.
