My husband, who is not an art enthusiast, really enjoyed this museum. I loved it!! It was well organized, with each type of art on a different floor (like European, Mayan, sculpture, etc). No trouble parking nearby in a garage. Wonderful experience!

We originally came here because we were downtown and had free time to spare. It was definitely the right place to go because it is a huge building full of exhibits! There were so many pieces to look at. It was very nice inside and although there were many people there I never had to wait in line to look... More

What a great collection of art but too bad it is run by a bunch of stiffs who are forced to check any personality or humor at the employment desk. If you like lots of rules....come here! Stay behind the lines, no talking just whisper, don't even think about touching anything, no laughing, etc. If you are a stuffy stiff... More

spent hours and was impressed with all the special touches--especially environments designed for children and parents--and their DRAWN TO ACTION exhibit and do it yourself design station focused on socially-engaged art.

My wife and I were at the museum for two afternoons (we had only planned one) and could have spent a lot more time there. There is the original building which has many floors and a very diverse collection and the newer building which is mostly contemporary art. There was a great collection of Japanese woodcut prints and lacquer which... More

Wow! This is one of the most beautiful museums we have visited. We enjoyed the exhibits, however, if you are not interested in modern art, this may not be your cup of tea. I would still recommend seeing the building, the architecture is amazing. Worth a visit!

I have been to the art museums of NY, BOS, CHI, Dallas, Seattle, etc. and am highly impressed by the selection and presentation of the art, architecture and ambience of the museum. Three hours were not enough! I'll be back.

See my Comfort Inn Review. Outstanding building. Wide variety of collections, excellently presented. Don't miss Native American and Quilt collections -- both are easy to miss, but should be visited, for sure. Exhibition of Western art sculpture was terrific, too. Plan on spending a good 4 hours or more inside. Good gift shop, too.

The Denver Art Museum provides an excellent environment for viewing art. For my first visit, I spent between 2-3 hours and saw about two-thirds of the exhibit space. I prefer more classic, fine art and tribal art over contemporary, and I was actually surprised that a museum of this magnitude had way more modern/contemporary space as a percentage of the... More
