I have lived in Colorado for more than 50 years and I remember when we traveled away for arts and culture! Now, we are home to it! The art museum may not be for everyone (some people may not enjoy art but I enjoy having the option!), but the western art collection is solid and the Spanish colonial art is... More

Permanent exhibits are great, but check also the temporary / traveling exhibits which happen often in this establishment. These may vary, but are always from the finest Art Museums of the World!

There is no way that you can do this museum justice in just one visit. Like all world-class museums, their is a vast amount of art on exhibit. Choose an exhibition that interests you and explore that one. Don't try to see it all in one day. The traveling exhibits are always a treat.

This is a must see Denver site. In addition to major touring exhibitions, you have a permanent collection that is spectacular, and you have one of the finest architectural contributions to the Art World and the Denver landscape. This is a wonderful facility and one you have to visit.

The Denver Art Museum building is an impressive sculpture in itself. There are two buildings full of art from many regions, periods, and themes. The curator has arranged for some world renowned exhibits in the last few years. Getting onto the website to check out future special exhibits is well worth the time. I especially enjoyed the Van Gogh exhibit... More

Recent traveling exhibits include post-modern, abstract, impressionism, Georgia O'Keefe, western, and many others. We are long-time members, and we are always impressed by the far-reaching efforts of the DAM staff to secure great exhibits. In-house collections are extensive and well displayed. While this is not the Chicago Institute of Art or NY Metropolitan, it is, nonetheless, a great museum. In... More

I have been going to the Denver Art Museum for about 14 years, as I live in Denver, and just went again April 11, 2014. They have had great traveling exhibits that have included Remington's night paintings and a collection of Van Gogh's art. Their permanent collection is good; I enjoy the western and native American portions especially. The restaurant... More

The permanent collection is just okay, but they do a nice job bringing specials to Denver. The building itself is very cool and there are almost always things for kids to DO if you time it right. I saw a traveling collection of French paintings with a class and we had a nice visit

I have been to a few exhibits at the Denver Art Museum, that latest being "Modern Masters." Each time, the curating has been first rate. Major artists, seminal works of art that we all know and really need to see in person, and the visceral impact that awaits a visitor. You can walk right up to a Rothko or Picasso... More

Love it or hate it, the Denver Art Museum is one of the most unusual structures you will probably ever enter. It's actually two buildings. Both buildings are architecturally unique. The older building (North Building) houses mainly permanent collections, including an especially good Asian art exhibit. The new Frederic C. Hamilton addition houses many of the rotating exhibits. Primarily contemporary... More
