Mondays are school-group free! With no large groups in the Museum, you can play and learn with a little less hustle and bustle.

At the Children's Museum of Denver, we strive to make our exhibits accessible to children of all abilities. Every exhibit is wheelchair accessible, and wheelchairs are available at the front desk upon request. Service animals are welcome in the Museum. In addition, the Children’s Museum has a guide and schedule boards to help you navigate our facility and get the most out of your visit. Learn more.

Lockers are available on a first come, first served basis for 50 cents. Non-locking cubbies are also available at no charge.

We offer limited stroller parking throughout the Museum, especially as we ramp up construction on Museum expansion. If possible, we recommend a stroller-free visit.
