Prehistoric Journey at the Denver Museum of Science and Nature

2-3 Hour Experience at a Museum

What better way to gain and expand curiosity about Earth’s rich history, and what our landscapes, animals, and seas were like long ago, then to see it up close at the Denver Museum of Science and Nature!

Children will be guided by Abbey on their walking tour of the Prehistoric Journey Exhibition, stopping in the book nook area to work on the Dinosaur Floor Puzzle. Here, kids will also enjoy a storytime with Abbey, either practicing reading aloud themselves or being read to. At the Sea Lily Reef diorama, they'll seek and find creatures that once inhabited our ancient sea floors; tactile exploration will take place at the Dinosaur Bone Bar; and then the group will take a short film-break to learn about the K-T boundary layer and asteroid collision that meant “lights out” for the Dinosaurs, and from which came the emergence of mammalian life.

Abbey will meet your child at the entrance to the museum, and the Experience will end in the same place for easy pick-up.

What Parents are Saying

We LOVED everything about Grasshopper! The customer service experience was exceptional! I felt like so much intentionality was taken to ensure that the activity would be both age appropriate and fun for my kids. Our experience leader was so easy going and chatted with the kids during the experience, and really took the time to engage and get to know them. We are definitely going to be using Grasshopper again! Thank you!

Grasshopper offered my daughter an opportunity to learn in a vibrant, fun setting that was continuously customized for her attention span and interests. Her Grasshopper teacher was fun, engaging and supremely personable. She took the time to get to know my daughter before diving into anything. I felt more than comfortable leaving my daughter in such capable hands…and love that she truly learned some new things from the experience. We will be using Grasshopper regularly to broaden her horizons and expose her to new concepts in a safe and compelling way. The icing on the cake is that the experience took place in our home, at a time that was convenient for us!

Our Grasshopper experience was amazing! I have four very curious kids at different ages with different interests, and the experience had all four of them engaged the whole time. Also, as an educator, I was very impressed with how the teacher led the program. She obviously knew what she was doing, and the minute she left, my kids were asking for another experience.
