My husband and I toured the Cell free as part of Doors Open Denver. When I think about this exhibit, I think in Red. So many graphics were in red. Glitzy, loud with space-age type of doors. Terrorism is not new and usually a reaction....More

This exhibit was interesting, insightful, and educational. They do a great job of making such a complex topic simple for you to understand, while also making it engaging. Now I want to learn more about this topic. The front staff was friendly.

This was a cool mini museum, if you will. If you're prior service, this is basically an upscale version of terrorism training. This is well organized and a clean place. We were the only ones there on a Friday morning so we had plenty of...More

Incredibly informative, unique and well presented. Very interesting experience that I don't believe exists anywhere else in the country if not the world!
