The museum is much expanded since we last visited, across two buildings. It's a bit confusing to find the entrance, and to find one's way around the museum. But the entrance fee is reasonable, and the quality of the art is amazing. Downtown location makes it very convenient to stop by for a few hours between meetings if in DT... More

Saw a fine western art collection and had a fabulous lunch at the restaurant there. There are a number of exhibits to meet all expectations and tastes and the gift shop is large and well stocked.

Many people may believe that an art museum is only for adults, or maybe older teenagers. However, the Denver Art Museum caters to the very youngest. Saturdays and school vacation days, they have backpacks available with activities for particular areas of the museum, such as the pre-Columbian or Northwest Territories exhibits. My grandkids, now 5 and 7 love these and... More

We had a good time when we visited the museum. It is quite a large collection, but you have to visit quite a few floors of the museum if you want to see all of it. We really wished that there was a printed guide to explain more of the modern art. When we went in Colorado Springs they had... More

I was somewhat ambivalent about going, but so very glad we did! We arrived at opening and joined a free architecture tour shortly thereafter. We enjoyed hearing about how Daniel Liebeskind was chosen, the materials used, and the entire process. Very interesting! The exhibits were great too. We got to see some of our favorites: Renoir, Monet, Picasso and experience... More

The Denver Art Museum is amazing. It was good 20 years ago when it occupied one building, but today with its gorgeous new building (connected to the old one via a 2nd floor bridge across the street), it's one of the best art museums in the country. The building itself is amazing and there are lots of interactive areas for... More

The Denver Art Museum is a real gem. I was amazed at the collection of meso-American art works and their display. It was comprehensive without being overwhelming and the pieces were exemplary to my mind. I was fortunate to be able to see the Gustave Dore, La Famille du Saltimbanque: L'Enfant Blesse, stunning and emotionally powerful. Also of note were... More

You have to see this if you're in Denver! The building alone is a work of art. Great neighborhood to visit too.

This display alone was worth the trip to Denver. The gallery was arranged so one could get both far away and closeup views of numerous stunning quilts. Explanations and guide were unusually well written--and believe me, I have read hundreds of quilt descriptions, if not thousands. Bravo!
