This excellent museum makes learning about science, health, nature and human history fun. With a focus on interactive exhibits, DMNS is very much a hands-on experience and utterly engaging for all ages. It's possible to spend an entire day here and not discover everything. But for families with young children, it can also be experienced one cool exhibit at a time. Don't miss the Discovery Zone on level 2 where dinosaurs, construction, science and more await young explorers. Egyptian Mummies never fails to fascinate, but there's also the intriguing Gems & Minerals exhibit, and, of course, Prehistoric Journey, which takes visitors back 3.5 billion years. The stellar planetarium and Phipps IMAX Theater are just icing on the cake. When it's time to take a break there's the convenient T-Rex Café, and don't miss the sweeping city and mountain views from the third-floor sky terrace.
