  • This museum exceeded my expectations. Located in downtown Denver, it has a modern exterior with a parking lot ($10) one block away. Two buildings have an interesting collection of art, my favorite...

  • Well done museum with great colors and lighting. All the little rooms and hallways, passageways give intimacy to the art provided. It makes me feel like I could enjoy without a lot of people around. Good selection of exhibits, bathrooms are always close. Tip: Take the elevator to the top, work your way down. The map isn't a good guide and it seemingly leaves out a lot of the museum.
  • Absolutely breathtaking! The Denver Art Museum is an amazing collection of some of the most interesting and eclectic art pieces. The setup is open and spacious and inviting and I think they've been a wonderful job. I thoroughly enjoyed myself! I highly recommend it, and especially on the many free days that are offered each year
  • The Denver Art Museum was really an incredible experience. I had a lot of fun. I went with my girlfriend who is an artist and a Colorado Native. It was really neat to not only see the art, but also to see it through her. If you have someone special I recommend going here and asking questions. My favorite moments were when we'd explain our interpretations of the work to each other. I was sad I didn't find anything that caught my eye at the gift shop but I'm sure others had a very different experience there.
  • Pretty good overall. I was impressed with the variety of artwork and pleasantly surprised. I think it's a disservice to the Indigenous Arts of North America exhibit and artists that recorded video and audio to accompany their pieces with the museum's poor placement of being next to the hallway where every visitor talks loudly in groups and passing by. I couldn't hear the video/audio recording because visitors voices echoed and elevated in volume.
  • What a great museum! Awesome exhibitions. They were also having a printmaking event where you could watch and talk to artists making prints using different methods. Would definitely come back for a second look.
