    Mixed Taste lecture series is brainy, zany and fun. You will learn things you never knew existed. Penny Fridays are so cheap it's worth splurging to have cocktails in the rooftop cafe. Stellar view.

    This David Adjaye-designed structure’s sleekness contrasts with the red brick typical of LoDo. Inside, five galleries showcase a series of exhibits devoted to innovation and creativity.

    If you haven't had an opportunity to check this place out, you need to. It's not too far from campus and is a great place to go to kill some time if you have it to spare.

    Rotating art exhibits (they have no permanent collection). Rooftop offers nice view of LoDo and other parts of Denver.

    If you're expecting the Museum of Modern Art (NYC), this is about 1/20 the size of that. But nice staff and some interesting works. Also much cheaper than MoMA.

    Great place to bring kids (especially the top floor). Fun, interesting exhibits and usually not too crowded.

    The museum isn't a screamer. Architect David Adjaye lets the art do that. The "double-skin" facade with tinted glass re-circulates building air and looks like black milk at night, LEED (NC, gold).

    Take the time to read the artist info and watch the videos. Espresso upstairs was delicious.

    Gorgeous building, and the Mark Mothersbaugh "Myopia" exhibit is incredible.

    This is not the place for Art. At least I haven't seen any. Just non sense installation. The position is great and the roof-top bar very nice.

    This museum is one giant trip toy. Get to the cafe at the top if the walks are melting.

    The geometry of the rooftop gardens is downright Libeskindic.

    Head up to the roof for coffee and a view. Don't need a ton of time to see the whole museum.

    The views from the café are amazing and the space has a cool vibe. Great coffee & pastries -- i had a macaron and it was DIVINE!

    Small museum with 3-4 exhibits, but very cool stuff. Nice rooftop with bar.

    everyone always tries to pull open or push down the bathroom door knobs. Push. I've seen so many people stand outside waiting because they think it's locked

    One of Denver's best art offerings. This is a non-collecting museum so there is always all new stuff!

    No idea why ppl like this place. No interesting exhibits at all. Terrible curation. Maybe worst museum I've ever been to. Definitely worst contemporary art museum I've been to.
