We just saw the Cartier Exhibition and it is GREAT! So many diamonds, so many tiaras. The space dedicated to the workshop was very interesting. There is always something special going on, so check before you visit. And advance tickets are a must for the popular shows. Palettes is a nice urban spot for an excellent meal. Enjoy!

Has two large buildings filled with art connected by a walkway. Also has interaction tours. Spent four hours here and could have spent more.

We experienced a FAB 24 hour staycation in Denver and ended with a visit to DAM. The prime motivator was the Cartier exhibit and while we enjoyed it, we were blown away by the watercolors of William Matthews. In addition, we took in the Matisse exhibit......the Quilt Exhibit.....and the historic Western Art Collection on level 7 of the North building.... More

I went to the Brilliant exhibit. This was the largest collection of Cartier I have ever seen. The layout was just as beautiful as the collection its self!

the Cartier exhibition took us nearly 2 hours to go round, so rushed around the rest of the museum. But it was worth every cent just for the Cartier exhibition which was excellent, more diamonds & jewels than the whole of Bond Street!! Wish we could of had a bit longer to do the rest of the museum, but really... More

I thoroughly enjoyed the Denver Art Museum. I was so pleased to see a display of quilts. These quilts have given me some new ideas to try on my projects.

The artwork isn't spectacular and the museum doesn't contain boldface names but it's a great place to spend a few hours and the building itself is very nice and worth seeing.

This is a beautiful museum that always has an interesting exhibit in place. Like most of my favorite museums, this one shows awareness in contemporary museum trends and museum theory, as it finds ways to keep the viewer active in the museum experience and it includes some tactile exhibits. Material culture lovers will always find something of interest. Words of... More

The ultimate visual in Denver is the backdrop of then Rocky Mountains but this too is a worthy inclusion to your visit; and particularly if you find yourself in town an extra day or two. Located a short walk from the Capitol Building, the museum offers a visitor/family friendly, architecturally inviting, wide spectrum of amazing art. While individual tastes may... More
