“Nice museum”
Reviewed May 15, 2013 via mobile

There is six floors and a bridge. To get to the sixth floor you have to cross the bridge and find the elevator. I like the european dislay on the sixth floor, Renoir. Nice art displays.

“DAM - A Great Local Attraction with Unique Exhibits”
Reviewed May 9, 2013

I was fortunate enough to score tickets to the recent "Becoming van Gogh" art exhibit and I was ecstatic before, during and after my tour. The exhibit layout, sketches and paintings from artists from similar times as well as from van Gogh and the explanations about what was behind each painting was intriguing. The Denver Art Museum (DAM) should be complemented for assembling many famous and not so famous Vincent van Gogh paintings for this exhibit. This was unique to Denver and it was very special. The architecture of the DAM is also interesting with fun sculptures such as the mom and baby heifers all in a cool part of Denver's urban setting. I had fun both inside and out of the museum with my camera. I also like their normal exhibits such as their Architecture, Design and Graphics exhibit and their Ocean art collection (art of the South Pacific).

The Palettes restaurant (by Kevin Taylor) at the DAM is a must try before or after your tour.

“Best Museum Ever!”
Reviewed May 9, 2013

Hands down, the best museum I have ever visited! The geometric building itself is a masterpiece with photo ops galore. Inside is troves of ancient art, ethnic art, interactive and modern art, photography and textiles - something for everyone. My family was delighted and amazed at every turn. This is a must see!

“A Masterpiece”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

Love the museum. I've been to museums in NYC, Chicago, etc. and this one ranks high on my list! A must-go in Denver. If you go on free-day get there when it opens because it gets really busy.
