Things to do in Colorado – Children’s Museum of Denver

Things to do in Colorado – Children’s Museum of Denver

Since the museum first opened in a converted school bus in 1973, they have served the metro-Denver community as the learning institution for young children and their caregivers. In no time, their need for a more permanent location was evident and they leased a renovated building on Bannock Street. Within months, the museum was drawing record numbers of visitors, so they began planning for a larger facility. In 1984, they opened their new building in its present location along the west bank of the Platte River.
