The Children's Museum of Denver is all about kid-powered learning, aka interactive fun and exploration for children from newborn to eight years. Among the most popular exhibits is Kinetics!, a space dedicated to physical science where kids build ramps and tracks to send bright orange balls soaring all over the room. The Center for the Young Child is the hot spot for the very youngest visitors. Other favorites include spaces where children and families can explore bubbles, water, a fire station and energy, among other intriguing options. There's also an art studio, an area called Assembly Plant where kids use real tools and their vivid imaginations to create objects, and an expansive outdoor adventure space. Every exhibit is geared for particular ages, e.g. 0-3, 2-5, and 4-8.
