Wow. This Museum is worthy of a stop. The artist's family retained collection is massive, and brilliantly displayed in Denver's art district, in it's modern home; devoted entirely to the artist's lifework. Little know, a Mr. Still was a visionary. His ability to provide visual commentary on social issues is remarkable. Worth the 2-3 hours it will take to see... More

Took my older grand kids as an educational field trip. We all found it to be interesting and doesn't take long to tour.

I've read many of the complaints that the museum is dedicated to one artist - Clyfford Still. Apparently none of them have done their homework, or understand the artist. When Still died, he bequeathed his art to a city that would build a museum dedicated to his art and only his art. The museum is not allowed to display or... More

Since I live in the Denver area, I really had to visit this museum at least once. Once is enough and I would not recommend it to visitors with limited time. Even though I generally prefer modern art, I was not very impressed with Still's. I don't think it really merits a dedicated museum of this size.

I was a bit surprised by some of the reviews complaining that the museum is just about one artist. This museum houses an amazing collection of one of the most iconic artists in the abstract expressionist movement and they do a great job of providing historical and biographical context to his work. I spent an hour and a half in... More

It is a must see if you love museums. I love that Denver has this museum. Quite an achievement. I love the cement building. Very modern and interesting. The art work wasn't appealing to me. At the end they have stick figure pics on brown paper bags. I could have done better work. I hope it is more to your... More

Most people have had very little exposure to Clyfford Still, but if you like abstract art, than you will love this collection by the man who coined the phrase "abstract expressionism." This museum was built to house the collection, and the painting rotate regularly to keep the exhibits fresh, so the whole place feels dynamic but reverential. I perfect place... More

I went to the museum knowing very little about Clyfford Still and his place in modern art. I was extremely impressed by this museum. First, I am not into spending entire days at museums, so this museum's size and collection were perfect for me. You can take your time and still be finished in around 2 hours. The building has...

We enjoyed our visit to the museum as it was interesting, manageable and fun for both the adults and children. The kids sat and played with the wooden puzzles they have out and also walked around. We all really liked it. The building is very well designed.
