Safe Spaces Policy Statement

The Denver Museum of Nature & Science exists to be a catalyst and ignite our community’s passion for nature and science. In order to fulfill our mission and live out our values, we strive to provide a safe place for everyone to follow their curiosity and desire for discovery, regardless of race, ethnicity, age, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, sex, gender identity, and range of abilities.  We foster a culture of inclusion that celebrates diversity of thought, promotes mutual respect, and advances authentic intercultural exploration and collaboration.


The Museum reserves the right to refuse service to, or revoke access to anyone we determine is threatening this safe, inclusive environment. We comply with Colorado laws and work closely with our cultural peers, community partners, law enforcement, and security experts to enact best practice safety and security measures.
