Curiosity Cruiser

Museum on the Move

Introducing the Curiosity Cruiser, your friendly neighborhood museum on wheels! The Denver Museum of Nature & Science is hitting the road in a pop-up vehicle, stocked inside and out with fun activities for some on-the-go wonder for families ready to explore together and curious adults on their own. 


Mars Outpost at Colorado Mills

Kids can explore what it might be like to land on the Red Planet in the free Mars Outpost play area at Colorado Mills.

With planets orbiting overhead, Mars Outpost features a Mars-scape, where kids climb through a rocket-turned-habitat, use a telescope to view the planets above, plan what to pack for life on Mars, try out interactive screens that encourage wonder about our universe and the scientific process, and more.

Mars Outpost is located inside Colorado Mills, near the Children’s Zone. It is well-suited for children under 10 years old, with special opportunities for the littlest astronauts in the toddler section of the play space.

Mars Outpost is presented with generous support from the Sexton Family Foundation.

Dinosaur Gulch at Cherry Creek Shopping Center

Dinosaur Gulch at Cherry Creek Shopping Center is a free play place designed for early learners, ages 0–5, with soft, climbable structures modeled after dinosaurs from the Cretaceous Period, such as Tyrannosaurus rex and Pteranodon. They are surrounded by colorful logs, flowers, mushrooms, and a slide shaped like a volcano.

This experience is located inside Cherry Creek Shopping Center, outside Macy’s on level one.
