Even the non art lovers in our family loved it here. Great building, great spaces to sit and rest and fab kids activities plus the unusual art

We visited Denver Art Museum (DAM) the first Saturday of the month which is a free day. The contemporary works on display were everything from exquisite to fascinating to weird and a little disturbing. Definitely enjoyed everything we saw. Didn't allow enough time for a tour, workshop, or the floral impressionist exhibit. There are fun and creative hands-on areas for... More

So many great things for children I wished I had one or was one. Lots of western art. Reasonable entrance fee. Buildings are fabulous. Allow plenty of time.

I have been to this museum twice. It is an excellent museum with phenomenal collections of Western Art and Sculpture and an incredible collection of Native American Art and artifacts. I highly recommend a visit. There are several other collections as well. I didn't have time to spend on the other American collections this time since they are quite extensive.... More

Not a big museum but with truly remarkable exhibitions. Currently two were featured: Blooms with a collection of impressionist flower paintings and Castiglione with a magnificent show of the work of this unjustly almost unknown master of the 15 Century. On the last floor of the main building you can find two gems in the recent acquisitions: Revolt a sci-fi... More

The not so good: difficult to find parking many places downtown. The good: elevators and facilities make browsing convenient. The great: endless art and other exhibits over several floors in two buildings. You'll see stuff you have never seen before unless you're a regular. Great but give yourself enough time to visit.

Just saw the special exhibit of 200 years of painting flowers. Fascinating. The staff and docents are extra helpful. While we were there, several groups of visually impaired and blind persons came through with docents explaining the paintings. I still don't know how to describe the color red to a person who has been blind since birth. Something to think... More

Any negative critics are probably comparing the Denver Art Museum to the Louvre, or the Met, or the Guggenheim, with unjustified criticism. DAM has an amazing array of art in two buildings, one of which is architecturally amazing as well. The museum has an excellent collection of contemporary, western, Renaissance, European, African, Asian, photographic and textile art. The cool, relatively... More

I've been to quite a few art museums in major cities, but Denver's is pretty good. I went with my partner who also has a good appreciation for art and history and I think it's not a place you can truly appreciate in one take. So many floors, so many artifacts actually left me feeling aesthetically fatigued. I would break... More
