We have gone several times to the museum and were never disappointed. It's a great place to bring out of towners. If we lived closer we would certainly join. Parking is free. I'm considering becoming a volunteer there. The volunteers all seem to like it and seem to be having a good time.

Unfortunately we only had a few hours to explore the museum, but we were very impressed with what we were able to see! In particular we enjoyed the Western art exhibits. The museum is beautifully set up, with interactive art areas for children, as well as special libraries to delve deeper into art and history. Wish we had had more... More

Loved that most exhibits included a fun activity for young and old to enjoy. It did get a bit crowded at some activity booths, where surprisingly (or not) adults were more pushy than the children. Watch your babies, parents; the grown-ups may take your eye out for a colored pencil!

We really enjoyed the special exhibit on dance. It was great to see the Native American dances prominently featured, along with the visual arts representing dance from a variety of cultural perspectives. The various interactive opportunities were fantastic, including the delayed dance show, the circle dance and also the baloons enticing participants to make artistic dance moves to keep the... More

Denver Art Museum may be small but it's collection is not. It's been the first to host many major exhibits in the U.S. If you're interested in western art, this is definitely the museum for you. But western art is just one facet of what the museum has to offer. I am a member and go there often and I'm... More

The DAM is a decent art museum for a city of this size. I'm especially grateful for the temporary exhibitions. This summer's Women of Abstract Expressionism (now through Sept 25 2106) is delightful (do not miss the 15-minute (ish) video--great footage of fascinating artists in their natural habitat).

I've visited The Denver Art Museum in many occasions. Be sure to go! It is probably one of the most interactive large museums I have visited.
