  • Good art museum, but many pieces of art are difficult to understand. Right next to Central Park, the Dushanbe Tea House, & the Boulder Creek, it is easy to access from any point in Boulder. Recommend a quick stop there. It is free!
  • It's a nice building inside, but after donating $5 to the museum, we were a little upset at the lack of art. There's a ton of white walls with no art. Maybe the joke was on us and the museum represented a minimalistic expressionism piece. 😁
  • Not my type of art. It took ten minutes to walk through and we lingered as much as we could. It's a dollar to get in so it's not a waste of money.
  • Maybe I'm just not that into Contemporary art, but their exhibits are a bit contrived. I think they could do more to help budding art appreciators interpret their experience.
  • Fun place. Old depot turned museum. They also host events and have parties occasionally. We went their new year's one which was a blast. Keep an eye out for what they have next!

Where to stay in Boulder

You'll find most of the pricier and more luxurious accommodations in downtown Boulder, but the city offers hotel rooms suitable for every traveler's budget. Stay in the heart of the city if you want quick access to shops and restaurants, but if you're traveling on a limited budget, consider a good value inn a short walk or bicycle ride from downtown. You can also choose to stay in Denver for a wider selection of economical hotels and motels; it's just 30 minutes southeast of Boulder.
