The Asen Art Museum is located in down town Aspen with very little or no parking. All of the exhibits are contempary. Many types and media are displayed. Was able to see all of the exhibits in less than two hours.

This is a quick (free) visit which is a convenient must-see break from the slopes. Interesting and modern, the two large exhibit rooms are thoughtfully curated.

the building is very interesting but the "art" we saw is what gives modern art a bad name. Was not impressed, hopefully other shows are better.

I am probably a little old fashioned but I found this Art Muesum a bit pretentious and 'try hard'. We didn't got to the upstairs cafe but it had a lovely outlook.

Well worth your time with several though provoking displays. Museum staff are very well informed and engaging. Don't miss the outstanding lunch (11am-2pm) is served on the top floor of museum !!
