Monday night we were invited to come to the VIP Grand Opening party at the Denver's Children Museum (see blogging has some fun perks!) And we naturally jumped at the chance to check it out. We have been members for a few years, but this past year when our membership expired I didn't renew it because of the construction going on, and being super pregnant and then with a brand new baby. But now we will definitely be doing that!
We have always loved the museum, but now, in Jasper's words, it's epic. And he couldn't be more right! There's literally something for everyone there. Even the older kids. Jasper was getting a bit old for a lot of the exhibits before, but now I know we could go and he would have just as much fun as the younger kids, if not More fun.
There are now 18 exhibits (and honestly we could have spent more than hour at each of the exhibits) and they are divided into four different types of play; Explore, Imagine, Investigate and Create.
Some of our favorites, they've got this 3 story tall climbing structor now that even adults can climb up which might have been Jasper's favorite, he said it was like a climbing maze.
They had an amazing macaroni and cheese bar at the party- amazing!
Their new and improved art room is amazing! It's like a legit art studio! I snuck in there to have a look but didn't want to risk bringing the kids in there because I knew my little artist loving kiddos would Not want to leave and I wanted to make it through the rest of the exhibits, but I can't wait to take them back!
I'm really glad they kept the ball room ^^^ as it's definitely one of our favorites!
I'm really excited about the new hands on kitchen they have. They will have real chefs there to teach classes for kids of all ages to jump in and help out! Tindra is obsessed with helping me make lunch and dinner, so I can definitely see that this will be a big hit!

We are so excited the new exhibits are done in time for winter! I can tell we will be spending a lot of cold days here!
