the traveling exhibits are worth visiting, but you have to pay for the exhibits on top of general museum entry fees and by the time you're done with the visiting exhibit, you're probably too tired to make it through the whole thing. i do love the interactive exhibits and the paper/ journals inviting people to reflect on what they're viewing...

The exhibit is now gone but Modern Masters was wonderful. Overall, the DAM is a great place to spend some quiet time, and they have a wide variety of different cultures and works. On some Fridays, they have members only events with live skits and wine tastings! Overall, one of Denver's best cultural spots!

This museum spans several buildings. There's so much to see, we couldn't see it all. Very helpful staff.

The building was impressive outside and in. We enjoyed the western art collection and also the Asian collection. Also, enjoyed the display of quilts. Their collection of European and Impressionist works is not too extensive. We noticed that in several galleries there were nicely done spaces for families to do activities that tied in with the works displayed.

Campus style with several buildings in a park like setting. Nicely laid out and well organized. Nice holdings and displays. Lots of helpful staff. Children's areas throughout yet has an adult feel. While there a dance group was doing Native American dances to music which you could view from that area or from above in the Native American holdings area,... More

Loved the collections and variety of works. I especially enjoyed the Daniel Sprick paintings. There are hands on activities for the younger children and adults.

The Art Museum is a must visit while in Denver, and my wife (an art major) said it was one of the finest she had seen in the U.S. Exhibits were wonderful and the layout of the museum was really user friendly, with hands-on sections for children to really "feel art", and reading rooms (with comfy sofas) throughout. Excellent!

This museum has a good collection overall, but it's special features are superb: the pre-Columbian exhibits and study rooms may be the best anywhere. Great depth and breath. The early western and contemporary western art is another special treat. And they mount some excellent special exhibitions. It's a full day and a treat.

The museum is just the right size for browsing, A thoughtful touch: in addition to ample spots to rest, portable folding stools that can be taken anywhere on the floor and returned after use. The museum shop had a big selection of merchandise. The Palettes restaurant offered good food and is a great place to people-watch. Free admission on the... More

We happened to be in Denver for the day and after some time spent on 16th street walking around enjoying the street performers we made a trip to the Art Museum. I wish I would have had my kids with me as there was TONS of take home art projects they could have worked on. I was really impressed with... More
