The Dior exhibit is an elegant walk through 50s -90s history. The audio tour could have more information. I was blown away by Rembrandt’s etchings. There is a DYI printmaking exhibit that was FUN. I loved the animal themed rotating exhibit from their permanent collection....More

The "Animals in Art" exhibit was fascinating. A number of western artists were good to see but the selection overall was very small compared to other museums. Lots of kid-friendly activities but admission for a family adds up so go on the free day!

Daniel Liebeskind designed this building and it is stunning. On the day that I visited the museum I saw an excellent exhibition of Rembrandt etchings. What I found most impressive, however, was the large number of young people who were visiting the museum with a...More

Several years ago the DAM mounted the exquisite YSL Retrospective which came to Denver after being in Paris. Thanks to being able to go on line, I realized that we had the complete Paris show here in Colorado in the exact format. It was magical!!!...More

Love the art museum! DAM brings in great traveling exhibits and has a respectable permanent collection. Fascinating architecture. Parking is easy. There really isn’t a “cafe.” It is more of a snack bar/coffee shop with very limited seating, often full of people checking their phones.

This was an outstanding special exhibit, something this museum does so well...saw the Women artists in Paris exhibit last year. The permanent exhibits are always worth a visit.

This is a great pace to visit- spend a few hours or spend the entire day. Regardless you will experience something new, interesting, and lasting. In addition, around the corner is the Art Hotel and a resturant and bar. The resturant is named Fire and...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

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.
