From the architecture of the building to the art to the staff, this is a great art museum experience for such a small town, and even better it's free! The exhibits may not appeal to all but we very much enjoyed them, and there are...More

It you like "modern art" then this will maybe be awesome. I obviously don't get it. It was weird, and we were not impressed. I would not go again. But that's just me. :(

This place is an architectural masterpiece on its own, besides the modern art exhibits it houses. The 3rd floor terrace café has amazing, unobstructed views of the snowy Aspen mountains almost in front of it. The lunch offerings are fantastic and well-priced for such a...More

Sometimes, you're not skiing, you're not shopping, and you're not eating. Here's a great place to spend some time. The architecture is bold and interesting, and the museum is free to enter. Exhibits rotate, and some may appeal more than others. The photography exhibit of...More
