    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!

    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.

    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.

    The museum enriches the lives of Colorado and Rocky Mountain residents through the acquisition, preservation, and presentation of art works in both the permanent collections and temporary exhibitions.

    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.

    Great exhibits, my favorites are of the American West! Take your time, spend a little extra for featured exhibits and have a great day, especially during a free one ;)

    Be sure to go while they have the quilting and textile room open. You get to create your own square using materials they provide! Very fun. Read more

    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

    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.

    It was a very nice visit..it reminded a bit of Museum of Louvre..surprisingly the kids enjoyed it as well..and they had the opportunity to develop their talents through few activities

    Great activities for kids (a scavenger hunt, hands-on art studio and other fun stuff) throughout the museum. A nice mix of modern, contemporary and historical artworks.

    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.

    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!

    The architecture is so unique and their rotating exhibits are always a great reason to keep going back over and over again.

    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.

    DAM has a fantastic contemporary collection- especially if you're interested in the past thirty years. and though they rotate the exhibition, the things on view are always choice.

    They have Bouguereaus, Oldenbergs, a Monet, the Chapman Brothers, Barbara Kruger and even a sculpture by Yoshitomo Nara! Plus a solid floor dedicated to Asian art.

    From ancient pottery to contemporary photography, Denver Art Museum is the coolest cultural hotspot in town. It’s covered in 9,000 titanium panels and is the spikiest building in the world.

    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!

    The jagged edges of the Daniel Libeskind-designed Hamilton Building house Old West art, contemporary masterworks, massive installations and traveling exhibitions.

    Check out the backpack cart on the second floor of Hamilton - it's free and the people there can help you find cool things to do. They're there on weekends and school holidays

    It will take more than one visit to see and appreciate everything. First Saturday of the month is free admission. :-)

    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).

    If you find the dustpans/brushes too big, head on over to The ART Hotel next door.

    Head into the Lower Level of the Hamilton Building and check out Herbert Bayer's pieces. A transplant from the Bauhaus and an amazing graphics/painter, all collected at the DAM.

    Look for all of Clare Twomey's "Red Dust" pieces throughout the museum. They are hidden in unexpected places for the Marvelous Mud exhibit.

    Visit on Free First Saturdays (May 1 & June 5, 10 am to 5 pm). Plan your trip a little later in the afternoon to avoid the bigger crowds.

    Today is free Saturday I will be at the front door of the north building. Come and injoy the art but don't touch or I will have to bust your knee caps. Haha

    After going to the King Tut exhibit, take the kids to the area where they get to dress up as pharaohs and make Egyptian collars. Cute and fun.

    The black couches and lounge chairs throughout the main building are super comfy, despite looking like they might tip over.
