CSU Spur is working to reach full capacity of programming throughout 2022; please note that not all programming is currently available every day.

CSU Spur is a free educational destination in Denver, open year-round to the public.


CSU Spur is focused on engaging PreK-12 students, families, and visitors around the topics of food, water, and health through real-world experiences. CSU Spur connects and inspires visitors through the ability to watch ongoing research, to see behind-the-scenes of services, and to watch professionals at work.


We’re excited to see you soon!
