What are the hours of operation?


Expanding Minds Unlimited - the Colorado Springs Children's Museum and Natural History Museum opened for public hours this past September 2017.
We are currently open to the public on Saturdays from 10am to 4pm.

During the week our focus is expanding young minds.  Many schools and centers bring field trips to the museum. Although we may expand our public hours in the future as of now our focus is private events, field trips and classes during the week.

The new EMU Market will be every 3rd Saturday of the month - hours are 10am - 3pm.

The EMU Farmers market starting this June 2018 will also run every Saturday. Dates and times will be available my the end of January 2018.

We have a lot going on at EMU and the Colorado Springs Children's Museum and Natural History Museum. Send us an email and ask to be included in our monthly newsletter to get updates on hours and events once a month. Thanks!


How much does entry to the museum cost?


The cost for public hours: $6.00 per person.

For school field trips, our standard fee is $5.00 per child, with teachers and staff being free. Some per/student costs can be lower based on school budget or other needs or if the school is a Title 1.

Costs for birthday parties are our basic package of $150, and our more expanded packages from $200 to $250.
