The Denver Museum of Nature & Science has sixteen PhD curators that are making real scientific discoveries and are leading active research in the field and lab.
Museum scientists study the history, evolution, and diversity of the universe, the Earth, and its inhabitants. We make new discoveries and share them with our communities through presentation, publication, and programming.
The Museum is home to the last grizzly that lived in Colorado, the world's largest rhodochrosite crystal discovered in a silver mine near Alma, a Triceratops skull unearthed by construction crews digging a basement in Brighton, and more than 4.1 million other irreplaceable artifacts.
Discoveries from the lab to the field, from Museum Scientists and staff.
The Denver Museum of Nature & Science has an active research program and authors a variety of publications.
The library's collection focuses on anthropology, earth sciences, health sciences, space sciences, zoology, the Rocky Mountain West, and museum studies.
