  • My family and I visited the DAM recently and I took the tour of the Jordan Casteel exhibit. It was a tremendous exhibit and I really enjoyed her work. I dropped out of the tour 45 min in to it because...  more »
  • The Denver Art Museum is great when there is a special exhibit. Otherwise, couldn't find much to look at. The special exhibit we saw was very nice but didn't take long to view. Nice gift ship.  more »
  • I wish I could rave as I love museums and I love art, but I was not impressed with the permanent collections. The building felt large and empty.  more »

  • Spend the $28 for the exhibit that is currently going on. We went to the Dior exhibit and it was extremely well worth it. It had an audio experience as well as a highly visual one. The main art museum may seem small but it is currently going through a renovation that is slated for 2020. The staff is super friendly and welcoming. Their social media is very up to date and informative and they are super knowledgeable about the pieces that they have. Great date night!!!
  • Nice exhibits, though limited to 3-4 in the entire museum. This may be due to extensive renovations. $13 entrance was reasonable for the offering. Overall valuable experience. Note: to use the lockers you need $.25, which will be refunded. The lockers are mostly too small for a normal sized backpacks.
  • The Denver art museum is a great place for a quick visit while downtown. They provide a wide range of interesting exhibits. We just so happened to be there as the Dior show was going on. Although there was an extra fee it was well worth it. You got to see pieces from every era of Dior up close and personal. A truly one of a kind experience.
  • Great exhibits, great staff, nice layout! Parking is difficult in this part of Denver so be prepared to walk far or refill the 1-hour meter outside if you can find a spot nearby. Loved the Dior exhibit that was there when we went. Nice gift shop, as well.
  • Amazing World class art and exhibits. In case you missed Dior check out my photos. I love the art museum. They always bring unique exhibits. Christian Dior was just as great as Eve St Laurent exhibit. For these big exhibits I suggest getting tickets as soon as they mention the exhibit is coming to Denver. They are timed entry get here early and you might have to wait a bit until they let you in. Can't wait to see what they bring in next. Go get your Art on and Visit the DAM.
