Really enjoyed the visit to the museum. I was sorry that we JUST MISSED the opening of the Dior exhibit, it looked like it was going to be amazing. We saw the Rembrandt printmaking exhibit, which was fascinating and educational. It was a little challenging,...More

They seem to be undergoing a big expansion/renovation so I'm not sure if they have a lot of their collection in storage. I was expecting a more comprehensive museum with galleries for different periods/cultures. There was not nearly enough art to fill that kind of...More

Denver Art Museum has a small collection toward modern arts. The admission was $13 or so adult if you are out of state. I started out on the 4th floor and walk my way down. The 3rd floor was closed due to some incident while...More

Today was the museum’s anniversary. A nice layout, skipped the Dior exhibit but there’s quite a few nice pieces.

Dior Exhibit - beautiful exhibit. Many, many gorgeous dresses. I saw a review that asked is it art? It depends on your definition. Very well presented and entertaining.

Not one of the better known Denver attractions, so it isn't that crowed and there is a lot to see. There is a monthly free day at the beginning of the month so you can get a taste if this is fo you.

I have not been to the DAM in quite a while and their Dior exhibit is very well done. I like the historical passage of the house of Dior from Christian Dior to the current principal designer. Quite the accomplishment of a museum that is...More

My husband and I went to the Denver Art Museum after hearing about their Stampede exhibit. We were so impressed with the diversity of the exhibits. Native American artwork and artifacts were plentiful. There was also a Rembrandt exhibit that contained etchings. We’ve never seen...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.
