“One of the best museums in Denver.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

The Denver Art Museum is a true Denver treasure. It is composed of two different buildings. Both buildings are architectural treasures. The older building is 7 stories and each story holds galleries representing art from different cultures and continents. There is a large pre-Columbian art section, A really good European art gallery. :) A definitely must see in Denver. :)

“Loved it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

Interesting building with some great pieces of art! There was a textile exhibition on while we were there and instead of it all being in one room, parts of it were spread throughout the standing exhibitions - very well presented and very well thought through!

“World class museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

I lived under a mile from this museum and went every time they had a free day. Some of the exhibits stay in place, but alot of it changes. It's definitely a must see - and I'm not a huge museum person.

“Outstanding Art Museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

The Denver Art Museum (known as the DAM to Denverites) is one of the city's jewels. It has excellent collections of Western and Native American art, and an ambitious schedule of traveling exhibits. Anyone who enjoys art can spend a most enjoyable afternoon at the DAM, especially if it includes a meal at Palettes.

“Spun exhibit not to be missed...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

Yes, the Nick Cave portion is amazing, but the Spun exhibit is integrated in to all sections of the museum in clever ways--plus the curators have come up with the best interactive exhibits I have ever seen. They really leverage their collection in interesting ways...
