Whales: Giants of the Deep

When: Oct. 31-Feb. 16 2015

A book I often read with my kindergartner poses the question: "Would you rather be a minnow or a whale?" Without fail, he replies "minnow," because he doesn't like the idea of having to come up for air all the time. The Whales: Giants of the Deep exhibit now at the Denver Museum of Nature & Science (2001 Colorado Blvd., dmns.org) isn't going to fix that problem, but it will attempt to wow like-minded pragmatists with a 58-foot-long sperm whale skeleton, a life-size replica of a blue whale's heart, and much more. You get access to it all for your typical $8 to $13 DMNS admission cost. The exhibit's up through Feb. 16, but today's as good a day as any to challenge your existing perceptions. — Kirk Woundy
