Spent a good part of this afternoon wandering this museum. I've been to dozens of art museums in the U.S. and Canada and this one rates as average. The new wing of the building is spectacular from the outside, but the inside design is disjointed and confusing. The maps, by the way, need to be totally redesigned. They are not... More

Just went to final Friday at the museum. My wife and I are members and always enjoy their specials and special exhibits. It's not as good as the Nelson-Atkins museum in Kansas City, but few art museums are. They waste a lot of space that could be filled with art, but the special exhibits are special. The museum shop is... More

As someone who has visited almost every state (only Hawaii left to go!), and done so mostly on the cheap, I chose what I wanted to see with great care. The Denver Art Museum was a special standout. While I was there solo, it was clear that they were very kid-friendly. The displays and collections were well-laid out. While I... More

This place is definitely one of the cultural highlights of Denver. They often have special exhibits, and typically which child friendly attractions. A great place for family to get young and not so young acquainted with art from all over the world.

Came here for the first time and they had the Star Ward costume exhibit which I thought was super cool. They had a few exhibits closed which was disappointing but I liked that they had hands on crafts on certain floors. The exhibits they did have were ok but I see the potential of the space.

The museum has high quality art for adults and children alike. The thing that makes this unique is how much they let your kids get into art. Kids are always free and on weekends you can pick up a free backpack that will allow you to learn more about area of museum while attempting to recreate art of the area.... More

I was pleasantly surprised by this show. Not only were the costumes amazing, the way the exhibit was set up was great. They spread out the "big deal" costumes so you always had something exciting to look at. The artist's sketches for costumes and story boards gave an interesting behind-the-scenes look at the creative process.

The Denver Art Museum is a great place to go and broaden your mind. They have excellent permanent collections, as well as intriguing visiting collections. The key to enjoying the Denver Art Museum is going on the right day. I accidentally went on the free Saturday that they have once a month, and I definitely regretted it. The crowds were... More

The museum is always amazing but the Star Wars costume exhibit wowed me. It was a lot of fun and I look forward to going again.
