Wild Color - Denver Museum of Nature & Science

Delve into the color spectrum like never before with "Wild Color." Discover some of the brightest and boldest examples from our collections—alongside experiences designed to awaken your senses (and serve as great photo backdrops!). In this special exhibition, you’ll learn how to decode the hidden messages that different colors can send. Then, explore some of nature’s mysteries hidden in plain sight: creatures that change color, plants and animals that give off an eerie glow and shades of color that the human eye can’t detect. Visit the Museum today—this exhibit is FREE with Museum Admission and offers content in both English and Spanish. You don't want to miss this celebration of color.
