The Denver Museum of Nature & Science is showcasing three new exhibitions. One will challenge your brain in new ways, another commemorates our first voyage to the moon, while the last will transport you to the unseen world beneath the sea.
A trove of remarkably preserved fossils found at Corral Bluffs near Colorado Springs brings into sharp focus how Earth recovered after the devastating asteroid impact 66 million years ago that wiped out the dinosaurs. This discovery is a watershed scientific moment, and the Denver Museum of Nature & Science's bilingual exhibit brings it to life.
Anywhere you look in nature, color holds meaning. It evokes emotion, signals alarm, and creates disguise and illusion. In this special exhibition, you’ll learn how to decode the hidden messages that different colors can send. Delve into the color spectrum as you make your way through immersive rooms, each representing a color of the rainbow. Then, explore some of nature’s mysteries that are hidden in plain sight: creatures that change color, plants and animals that give off an eerie glow, and shades of color that the human eye can’t detect.
