Museum Publications

The Denver Museum of Nature & Science has an active research program and authors a variety of publications.

Location: Level 1, Level 2, Level 3

From Alaska to Argentina, Africa to Australia, more than 90 wildlife and habitat scenes illustrate our planet's amazing diversity. Like three-dimensional "postcards" from places near and far, they capture moments in time, showcasing the world's wondrous animals and the delicate ecosystems in which they live.

Bears and Sea Mammals Hall will be closed August 19-23 and October 7-11 for renovations.  

For Educators


Museum Seek-and-Find

Artist Kent Pendleton, who painted diorama backgrounds for the Denver Museum of Nature & Science, often hid tiny elves in his work. A few are visible throughout the Museum. The elves are well camouflaged, but if you download the sheet below and use a Museum map, you can seek out the elves as well as some other surprises.
