Kirkland Museum of Fine & Decorative Art
#2 of 43 Museums in Denver
Unlike a lot of museums, they also give you plenty of places to sit down and admire the art without feeling the need to sit on the many chairs on display.
I love art museums and the new Kirkland Museum is spectacular, both outside and in.

Denver Museum of Nature & Science
#3 of 43 Museums in Denver
Denver's City Park reminds of Chicago's Museum Campus and Grant Park, a great place to sit and relax and visit history and art museums.
This is, for me, always a must when I visit Denver; it is one of the best natural history museums I've been to in the world, and would be fascinating for children.

A very manageable sized museum that we went through in about an hour and avoids the museum fatigue of some of the larger museums.

Children's Museum of Denver
#6 of 43 Museums in Denver
We’ve been to many well known children museums, including Chicago, San Francisco, Miami or Tokyo, and this one definiteky ranks at the top.
Well done - even against some of the wonderful, free, London museums, this scored top marks for us.
Denver Art Museum
#7 of 43 Museums in Denver
The museum's collection of Western and Indian art and artifacts is worth the visit, and the special exhibits as well as events, make DAM and Clifford Still museums wonderful places to spend time.
I have been to the art museums of NY, BOS, CHI, Dallas, Seattle, Baltimore, Hartford, etc. and am highly impressed by the selection and presentation of the art, architecture and ambiance of the museum.
