See The Animals At Cheyenne Mountain Zoo

Animals in Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, Denver

This is a beautiful zoo in the mountains where more than 800 different species live. Kids can take part in interactive demonstrations and educational opportunities. It’s a great, and fun way, to learn about the different animals.

Also, there many play areas for kids to enjoy and hand-feed the biggest giraffe herd in captivity.

Dinosaur Resource Center

Experience fossils from raptors, T-rexes, flying and marine reptiles, gigantic meat-eating fish and more! Kids can pretend to be a paleontologist for the day!

They can also view a functioning fossil preparation laboratory. A trip to the Dinosaur Resource Center is so much better than sitting in front of the TV all day!

Bear Creek & Fountain Creek Nature Centers

Enjoy your time outdoors, no matter what time of year it may be! Explore trails, observe wildlife, and learning from educational programs.

One thing you can observe is the outside/inside of a beehive – try to find the queen bee! Kids can enjoy comparing their arm span to the wingspan of different birds in the area as well.

This is fun for the whole family, no matter how old (or young) you are!

Ghost Town Museum

Ghost Town Museum

Experience an Old Western village in an indoor museum. It is made from structures that were a part of a vibrant mountainside community.

Kids can design a “wanted” poster, listen to the piano player, and look for gold.
