Exhibition Sponsors

Each year, the Museum draws large audiences to its world-class temporary exhibitions, which receive widespread publicity throughout the Denver metro area. Sponsorship of these premier opportunities offers companies the highest level of visibility and closest association with the Museum.


Education Sponsors

The Museum serves more than 300,000 schoolchildren each year through free Museum visits, an array of science education programs, scholarships for underserved schools, distance learning, and teacher professional development opportunities. Support for these programs is vital to encouraging children to tap into the power of science and creating a vibrant Colorado community.


Event Sponsors

Annual event sponsorship opportunities are available for companies looking for additional visibility and opportunities to entertain clients and reward employees. The signature fundraising gala, Museum After Dark, sells out each fall, with 750 guests. The Science Lounge series-geared toward young adults-and other events for a variety of audiences are also available for sponsorship.
