University of Colorado Museum of Natural History

When you're looking for places to go that offer fun and educational activities for kids, the University of Colorado Museum of Natural History is a good bet.

Natural history & natural wonders

Interactive science and art exhibits let kids go hands-on with learning -- while also giving you a break from reminding your youngsters not to touch anything. Two long-term must-see exhibits include Fossils: Clues to the Past and the BioLounge.

From animal exhibits to displays spotlighting plant life, fossils to galleries on evolution, there are plenty of things to do with kids at this Boulder museum -- and admission is free. However, parking fees vary, except on the weekends, when unlimited free parking is available in residential areas west of Broadway.
