Learn, Grow, & Connect: Children’s Museum of Denver at Marsico Campus

Play-based learning is becoming increasingly popular because, at the end of the day, children naturally learn through play. During the week, while parents are at their 9-5 jobs, children, in their roles as students, often spend extended periods seated at desks in schools. However, the traditional method of learning at a desk doesn’t always resonate with every child’s learning style.

A unique way to get students excited about learning is to visit the Children’s Museum of Denver at Marsico Campus. Designed for ages newborn – 8, the Museum’s overarching goal is to teach children and families through the transformative power of play. The Museum not only serves as a space for families to bond but also fosters moments of wonder, joy, and meaningful connections within a secure and nurturing environment.

“We believe in kid-powered learning, and our exhibits and experiences are designed to promote the power of play,” says Michael Yankovich, the President and CEO of the Museum. “Play is essential for a child’s cognitive, physical, social, and emotional development, and boosts executive function, strengthens a sense of agency, and fosters resistance to stress.”

At the Museum, an array of offerings awaits families seeking enriching experiences. Through workshops, year-round community events, and one-of-a-kind exhibits, children are effortlessly engaged in activities that stimulate their curiosity and intellect. These experiences are intentionally designed to challenge children’s minds without them even thinking about it.

Whether a child is investigating, imagining, exploring, or creating, the Museum gives children the opportunity to learn while gaining confidence in subjects like math, science, and art. In an era dominated by digital distractions, the museum offers a refreshing YouTube-free environment where children can immerse themselves in hands-on experiences.

By embracing play-based learning, the Museum offers a holistic approach to education. Here, children are not merely passive recipients of information but active participants in their own learning journey.

“We love that we live in a city with such a thriving cultural and arts scene and are proud to provide Colorado families with young children a unique place designed especially for them,” Yankovich shares.

For 51 years, the Children’s Museum of Denver at Marsico Campus has changed the lives of many students and their families. As families step through its doors, they embark on a journey of discovery and enlightenment, where every moment is an opportunity to learn, grow, and connect.
