    The Denver Art Museum is practically overflowing with great exhibits. Asian, Western American, Modern, and the excellent American Indian gallery. Don't forget "Fox Games". It's a fantastic must see.

    It takes about 8-10 hours to see everything they have to offer. I spent 5 hours there and only saw 60% of it! Their Native American & Asian art exhibits were incredible...best I've seen yet!

    One of the largest art museums between Chicago and the West Coast! Don't let the 70,000 works of art overwhelm you and pick a few exhibitions/floors to check out. Lockers available behind the stairs.

    While the rotating exhibits are definitely the draw here, there are also fantastic displays of Native American/Western art. Be sure to cross the bridge into the adjacent building to see it all.
  • Hannah A.
    One of the best art museums I've been to. The Asian Art Floor alone is worth the trip — but take your time and definitely take pictures. So beautiful.

    Wonderful, interesting and well laid out exhibition. Thoroughly enjoyed it. The little audio device they give you is informative when it comes to what they deemed 'adult' pieces.

    Did you know? The design of the Hamilton building was inspired by the Rockies & rock crystals from the foothills; the older North building breaks from tradition and "temple-style" museum architecture. Read more

    Hamilton Building > Level 2, Western American Art > Studio. There is a stamp dispenser that sells USPS Forever stamps for 35¢ each. That’s 14¢ cheaper than what they’re supposed to be.

    The best place to world art in Denver. Their blockbusters are of the highest quality. I'd recommend this museum to visitors of Denver and Denverites alike.

    If you have luggage, the museum has a handful of pretty big lockers downstairs (modern wing). They can easily fit a full-size suitcase & they're free!

    Whatever you do, do NOT parking in the parking structure!!! Use the 5 hour parking meters or surface lots. You could spend 30-45 minutes trying to get OUT of the structure's horrendous line!

    Beware these doors. Inside there is no sign to indicate that this is an emergency exit. (Perhaps part of a relational aesthetics piece where you're meant to leave with a sense of shame for trying).
