  • Hover near an African watering hole, stand just feet away from polar bears, and try out hands-on activities in the wildlife diorama halls.
  • Let the little kids "excavate" fossils, experiment with water in action, test building methods and materials, and create art projects in the Discovery Zone.
  • Take a “hike” on Colorado’s Mount Evans as you actively put your body to the test in Expedition Health.
  • See thousands of authentic objects, including mummies, dinosaur fossils, animals, Native American artifacts, and spectacular gems and minerals from around the world.
