Overview
More
Kirkland Museum of Fine & Decorative Art has relocated to a new golden building in Denver’s Golden Triangle Creative District. The museum’s new building offers visitors an enhanced experience with more display space while staying true to the salon style and intimate atmosphere for which the Kirkland is known. The museum’s three collections are: • International Decorative Art—A celebrated collection including notable examples of every major design period from Arts & Crafts to Postmodern. • Colorado & Regional Art—The largest repository of art showcasing the state and region’s talent, concentrating on the 1840s through the 1990s with about 7,000 works more than 700 artists. • Vance Kirkland Retrospective—Kirkland (1904–1981) is generally considered Colorado’s most distinguished modern painter. About 550 paintings and about 600 drawings and prints are held in his estate collection. Note: Due to the fragile nature of the collections children must be 13 or older to be admitted.

I love art museums and the new Kirkland Museum is spectacular, both outside and in. The collection is large -- only 17% is on display -- and delightfully eclectic, making this museum worth several visits and a membership. Most museums do not do justice to...More

Although small, this museum is packed with paintings, furniture and ceramics from several important periods such as Art Nouveau and Art Deco. Unlike the Barnes, it has labels to explain what you're seeing. While I personally preferred the Art Nouveau, the paintings were also wonderful....More

Denver is not a tourist-friendly city. This small gem is walkable from most large hotels in downtown. Well curated, interesting, and unique. GO. Certainly worthwhile.
