While you can help yourself to the masters in one or two galleries within the museum, there is a surprising amount of modern art to enjoy. Sculpture, pop art, etc. spent most of my meandering with a smile on my face. Loved it.

We had 2 visits. The first after we had arrived in May and on a cloudy stormy day this was a delightful refuge especially as the modern art exhibition was running (some of which passed me by). This cost extra but was worth it but more special from our perspective was the wonderful collection of American bronzes - a feature... More

I enjoyed strolling through the Denver Art Museum and was able to take in a reasonable amount of the exhibitions in about 4 hours time. The entire staff at the museum were most assistive, personable, and incredibly friendly. Unlike some city museums, the place was not overcrowded allowing me to leisurely progress through the art and enjoy the overall experience.... More

The spectacular architecture of the rather grandiose building proved to be the best piece of art in the entire museum. The art-lover would be well served to remain outside in the nicely appointed courtyard. Upon entering the odd and angular structure, I was met with an open expanse and yet no art. The striking absence of anything art should have... More

I was really impressed with the architecture--inside and out--of DAM. It's brilliant that so many attractions are connected to each other in a few blocks. I also enjoyed the opportunities to make art on-site after being inspired by masters.

The DAM is a great museum, starting from the outside - an intriguing design by Daniel Libeskind, and a spectacular location, over the road. The musuem's design dictates its layout, as it is not your run of the mill, square or rectangular building. The place is so large that it cannot be properly viewed in one day. Best to come... More

DAM has an expansive collection, and lots of interpretive tools including reading rooms on each floor. We spent most of our time with the Western and Native American pieces, as well as the contemporary works. Regardless of the works you choose to visit here (the Asian art collection was also rich), each exhibit is well curated and contextual. Make the... More

There is a nice variety of art here. There are many different styles/periods to see. Easy walk from the Sheraton Hotel. It is also a kid friendly museum in that there are things for kids to do including a sculpting room, and two craft rooms.

I'm always impressed with the DAM. The permanent collection is fairly impressive, and there is almost always a temporary exhibit there that captures my attention. The building itself is pretty unique, and I like the way the interim spaces (halls, stairways, etc) have been put to use.
