The Denver Museum of Nature and Science (DMNS) is in the preliminary stages of envisioning a transformation of the east entrance and plaza outside the Museum into a more accessible and inviting space. The project is called the East Plaza Revitalization Project. Plans include revealing the original, historic staircase leading to the museum (see attached photo), now encased in a canopy that serves as the entrance to the Infinity Theater. Adding outside seating and making changes to the landscaping, including the removal of evergreen trees for security reasons, are additional goals. Improvements to the Infinity Theater Lobby are envisioned. The project also aims to offer improved programs like regular sensory-friendly screenings and Free Night Programming.
Another goal of the East Plaza Revitalization Project is to create spaces for private events like weddings and parties. Traffic studies for the feasibility of these uses are anticipated.
