If you’re interested in all things science and nature, you’d be a fool to miss this. With a quite staggeringly huge collection within its half a million square feet of space (I know, it’s tiring just thinking about it), this museum will teach you all about the natural history of Colorado, as well as less interesting things about the rest of the world. Taking you through various time periods, such as the age of dinosaurs, Egyptian mummies, how single celled organisms got to where we are today, and tons other stuff that will completely confuse Creationists. I’m surprised they’re not protesting outside, to be honest. And if for this reason alone, you should definitely visit.
