Denver Museum of Nature and Science:
I visited this museum several times as a kid growing up in Denver. It's in Denver City Park, which is a gorgeous park to visit before or after the museum.
Near the entrance:
The next day, we visited the Wings Over the Rockies Air and Space Museum. This museum is located in a hangar at the old Lowry Air Force Base.
And they got to sit in a few planes:
I liked this model of an airplane from the 1960s that showed the large seats of the plane and the formal attire of the passengers.
We saw a 10-minute video about flying over the Rocky Mountains narrated by Harrison Ford, who apparently flies in Colorado often.
Admission for our family into both of these museums would have cost $99.75, but was free with our Perot Museum membership. We have plans to use our Perot Membership at other museums in Florida and New York later this year. Can't wait to explore some new museums on our future trips!
Have you used a local museum membership in other cities or states?
