There were so many really weird displays that I have a hard time remembering the few that I did like! There are a lot of nice areas for children with quite a few fun & creative activities for them to do. They also have a really nice restaurant and several gift shops.

This museum is architecturally striking and its collections good. Especially worth the visit are the native American collections.

If you like pre-Columbian artifacts you should see the huge exhibit in the museum just across the street using the over-street walkway. The artifacts are placed according to location and time line. This is probably one of the best in the country.

A friend took me to see the Museum about 8 years ago and I loved everything about the place. I needed a hip replacement at that time and wasn't sure I could navigate throughout the building. My friend told me not worry, she would ask for a wheel chair in order to take me around the place. It was wonderful... More

This is a great museum if you love art. They have traveling exhibits that are spectacular. They have educational backpacks for little kids to keep them engaged. They have different ones for each floor. A nice way to spend a day indoors with plenty of exercise while taking in the beauty of our world through the eyes of artists.

This Museum has something from everywhere. From French impressionists to native basket weavers. The rooms flow nicely, but expect to see anything in a room, there doesn't seem to be a real theme to each room or section like most galleries. I guess that why its a museum!! but you will enjoy it.

Came in for the weekend with my girlfriend to experience the culture of Denver. This was a wonderful part of our weekend. Awesome architecture throughout the building. It makes you feel like your walking on the walls when you go down the stairs, it's crazy. The exhibits were intriguing and fantastic. Did a wonderful job of showcasing local artists. Overall...

What a world-class museum. Our family loved this place. There are two buildings connected by a pavilion – one is a fortress-like structure and the other is a complex geometric unique building clad in titanium and glass, designed by Daniel Libeskind. While known for its collection of American Indian art,there is some wonderful modern and contemporary sections as well as... More

Do visit this museum if you're visiting Denver from abroad (or the East Coast). It's not the Louvre, nor the Met (and please don't go to Denver with that attitude), but it's truly different and unique. I really appreciated the native american art sections and some of the the contemporary american art. They are quite distinct from those typically seen... More
