Museum Exhibits, Easter Breakfasts, and More!

April 1, 2021

This weekend is Easter, and with it, all the Easter egg hunts and Easter breakfasts you can fit into one weekend—including some exclusively for adults! The Mile High City is also hosting some exciting new exhibits at Denver Museum of Nature & Science, including an interactive T. rex display and an exhibition that explores the vast mysteries of Stonehenge.


Tales of the Wild West abound, but how many stories have you heard that are actually about the history of this unique city we live in?

This is your chance to find out how the Mile High City was founded, the key players in its development and growth, and all about the highs and lows that have brought this resilient city to the point it is today!

The mysterious circle of monoliths has been puzzling the world for centuries. This is your chance to get some new inside information! The temporary display at DMNS features 400 artifacts and includes breakthrough sciences that are helping experts discover new insights about the phenomenon. 

As a World Heritage Site, Stonehenge is on many travel lists, but until you have the chance to journey there in person, why not get inspired by this exciting exhibition? With some stones that are over 20 feet in height and weigh more than 50,000 pounds, scientific analysis has shown that they were transported from over 150 miles away! How’d they do that?
