It's child's play at Denver's new museum building.
Emphasis is on hands-on learning play: children can shop in a tiny store (with counters and fruit stands at child height) and learn about marketing; in a mural room, they can look down from a giraffe's height or up from bug's eye level to learn about points of view. Some exhibits are just fun--a smiling dinosaur, Hollywood make-up tables, a roomful of plastic balls.
The museum is open Sundays and Tuesdays from noon to 5, Wednesdays through Fridays 2 to 5, Saturdays 10 to 5; special hours for preschoolers only are 9:30 to noon Tuesdays. Children must be accompanied by an adult. Admission is $2.25 for children and adults. For an update on events, call (303) 433-7433.
From Interstate 25, take 23rd Avenue (exit 211) east to Seventh Street; turn right, then right again on Crescent Drive.
