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

We hadn't been to the new museum yet, so visited on this trip. Very modern/abstract - including one exhibit that we thought was under construction - but that was the exhibit! I'll admit I'm much more a fan of Impressionist and other "older" styles, but...More

The Museum is a nice place to visit. There is no entry charge and on the third floor they serve food with a great view of Aspen Mountain.
