The Denver Art museum is a wonderful place. There are so many things that youngsters can do in the museum, too. It is very interactive. We visited when the Cartier Exhibit was in town, but we opted not to add that, as we assumed we would have plenty to see without the special exhibit. The western art is amazing and... More

Cartier in the 20th century is at the Denver Art Museum until March 15th 2015. I went to the exhibit with 2 of my friends and we were all very impressed with it. Wonderful objects and accessories with history to go along with the jewels and other fine art pieces. An audio guide is included with admission price. Jeweler to... More

The Cartier exhibit was amazing. I've heard great things regarding the caliber of exhibits from this city's art museum and we felt that our experience was a part of that trend.

I actually visited for extra credit for my art class, but I'm glad I did. After learning so much in my art history class, I was able to see the different styles and actually appreciate them! I was sad we didn't go to the cartier exhibit but everything else was all around awesome. :)

Located near the state capitol and the end of the 16th St. Mall, this world-class museum is known for its wide array of Native American art in a stimulating architectural environment. The pre-Columbian art is also stunning in that it covers virtually all of the major cultures with superb artifacts - some more than 1000 years old. There are areas... More

I just experienced the "Brilliant" exhibit. What a great presentation! It was a walk through history with a focus on the fabulous work of the jeweler to the affluent, Cartier. I am now motivated to get out all of my Mother's costume jewelry and wear it with a new appreciation of the place in time that these pieces represent. A... More

What a pleasant surprise. I was impressed with the balance and quality of the collections. In particular I could not help to notice how the museum sought to inspire the creativity of children. The Cartier Exhibit is one of kind that is presented exquisitely and was most informative. Absolutely go and see this. Kudos to the museum curator and team... More

This is a wonderful museum. If you missed Van Gogh, I'm so sorry, it was 7 years in the making and a wonderful show. But there is so much for everyone, all the time. I am a member, was a volunteer (guest services), but quit because they had too many volunteers and I couldn't stand being bored. That's a good... More

If you like history and art, this was an absolutely beautiful exhibit. It was 4 yrs in the works getting this to the Denver Art Museum and it did not disappoint. The staff was extremely informative. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour.
