In Denver, museums are as plentiful as the mountain air. For more than a hundred years, the Denver Museum of Nature and Science has invited visitors into halls full of information about the area’s natural and cultural history. The Denver Art Museum, meanwhile, displays a wide assortment of art, including American Indian works, contemporary pieces, photography, and textile art. The Museum of Contemporary Art Denver is dedicated entirely to modern art. Elsewhere in town, the Children’s Museum of Denver emphasizes education through creative experience, while the Forney Museum of Transportation showcases more than 600 artifacts, including Amelia Earhart’s car and a Big Boy steam locomotive. All told, the museum scene adds to a long list of excellent things to do in Denver.
