Humans are naturally curious about themselves and the world around them. At the Denver Museum of Nature & Science, we collect to better understand how our bodies, cultures, world, and universe work. We have 4.3 million artifacts and specimens. We use them every day for scientific studies, for educational programming and to inspire curiosity in our visitors. Our collections help the Museum create a community of critical thinkers that understand the lessons of the past and act as stewards of the future. Their preservation ensures that future scientists and generations of Museum visitors will always have access to them.
