Well appointed galleries, interesting themed exhibits, it’s big enough that even on a busy day we didn’t feel crowded. A very unique building make sure to take the time to look around. Note: special exhibits may need tickets purchased in advance for a specific time.

As avid museum-goers, we were pretty excited to be within walking distance of the DAM from our downtown hotel. The building itself is exciting to look at and, from what we could tell, there will soon be an impressive extension. However, on the day we...More

Only one-half of the museum is open right now because extensive renovations are going on in the original building across the street, but it is still the place to be. I have recently been to several outstanding temporary exhibits there, such as Dior, Rembrandt's etchings,...More

I visited the museum during a 6 hour stint in Denver.hoped to see the Dior collection but it was sold out. The museum is extremely kid friendly and had some interesting art.

Denver is a very modern city and this site specifically shows the incredible architecture of the town. Many interesting exhibitions take place around the year, so this is a must when you visit.

In July, we got to visit Denver, for more than just a connection at Denver International Airport. Since we moved away, in 1998, our trips back have just been too few, and far between, but we were in town, and making up for lost years....More

Be aware that some people get very dizzy inside this building. The Dior exhibit was very interesting and the other galleries are great. If you get dizzy just sit down and look at a straight wall. It’s because the walls are not at right angles....More

We covered the top two floors in a couple of hours. I would suggest 2-3 hours to give you a good flavor of the museum.

Denver Art Museum a Joy Today (0 Replies)
We wanted to get to the DAM to see the Miro exhibition: Instinct and Imagination before it closes on June 28th. While we enjoyed THAT immensely(altho I have to admit to responding to the sculptures more than the framed artwork),there are two mother exhibits NOT TO BE MISSED. Starring Linda: a trio of John DeAndrea sculptures is on view only until June 21. This sculptor is a realist and you expect what is here to get up and start walking. SIMPLY amazing and SOOOOO enjoyable. I must admit I...More

Four day itinerary in Denver? (2 Replies)
I will be in Denver in August during a weekend and would like suggestions on how to spend it? I will not have a car but will depend on public transportation and tours to get me around. I already bookmarked a day for Boulder, a day for Rocky Mountain National Park and another day for a tour of Red Rocks. On the 4th day I would like to go to Denver Art Museum. Am considering going to open studios/gallery on Friday. Thank you in advance for any suggestions and comments on things to add...More

If you are doing a tour of RMNP, I hope it is not the Gray Line Tour. I don't like their itinerary because you don't even enter RMNP until after lunch. Most of the overlooks and the best overlooks along Trail Ridge Road are between the Alpine Visitor Center and Estes Park. With Gray Line, you will not get to those overlooks until later in the afternoon. Afternoon thunderstorms are very common in RMNP including along Trail Ridge Road. You run the risk that the best views will be obscured by...More

An ARTSY Preteen Picks Denver - Trip Report for Inbetweeners (7 Replies)
Thanks to Frommers and Trip Advisor, we just returned from a terrific trip! In our family, when you are a fifth grader you get to go on a getaway just with Mom, so my husband and teen were home and my artsy, thoughtful 11 year old and I were alone. We wanted to share some highlights: Hands Down Best: Cocktails and Canvas. Boy, I want to franchise this spot! Picture 60 people, mostly adult women but men and some preteens were also there.

What a gem of a trip report! And a lovely family tradition...what memories! Thank you for sharing it with us. I'd never heard of Cocktails and Canvas, and I didn't see it in a search for Things to Do. It would be really great if you could write it up as a new review.
