(Denver, Colo.) Douglas County residents can attend three upcoming free days at The Denver Museum of Nature and Science.

Visitors of all ages are invited to explore the 123-year-old building and its recent renovations. 

On Jan. 29, Feb. 6, and Feb. 26, guests can enjoy a free day that includes taking in two interesting temporary exhibits and experiencing the newly refurbished theater—all at no charge.

The Unseen Oceans exhibit takes guests on a journey from the depths of the sea to the surface while learning about how scientists preserve underwater ecosystems. Unseen Oceans closes on April 9.

The second temporary exhibit, After the Asteroid, showcases a trove of newly discovered fossils found at Corral Bluffs near Colorado Springs and displays scientific evidence of the asteroid impact 66 million years ago that wiped out the dinosaurs. 

The newly-renovated Infinity Theater offers updated experiences and innovative technological improvements for guests. Experiences include a new 3D cinema screen, multi-channel surround sound, a hearing induction loop, an updated closed captioning system, a laser projection system, and a new concessions area.

In addition to documentaries playing now like “Serengeti” and “Ocean Odyssey,” the museum plans to screen classic Hollywood movies and independent movies, plus live stream concerts and performances, other multimedia shows, and more.

Exhibits are free with entry tickets. Guests can reserve free day admission tickets online.

Tickets to the planetarium and Infinity Theater range from $4 to $10 per person.
