Cultural Institutions

Our Denver Bonds will protect and preserve our zoo, museums and theaters — institutions that have engaged Denver residents with new ideas and information for more than a century.


New learning opportunities
The new Center for Science, Art and Education at the Botanic Gardens will be an international hub for scientific research and exploration. With expanded classrooms, an herbarium and an auditorium, this facility will inspire students of all ages.

Improvements at our unparalleled facilities
The Denver Zoo is home to more than 4,000 animals, including many endangered and threatened species. By replacing the 48-year-old animal hospital at the Zoo, we will ensure these animals have access to the best care. At the Denver Art Museum, improvements will make the 46-year-old North Building safe and accessible for visitors and help preserve rare art collections.

Critical repairs and maintenance
Maintaining our unparalleled museums and theaters requires additional upkeep. Infrastructure repairs, safety enhancements, and energy-efficiency improvements will ensure the Denver Museum of Nature & Science, Red Rocks Amphitheatre and the Denver Center for the Performing Arts continue to be safe spaces for us to experience the arts, history, and the natural world.
