    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Either figure out what you want to see in a few hours or plan on spending most of a day here. Lots of opportunities for creativity, from contributing thoughts on Denver to making your own slogan pins.

    Coming from DC, free museums are everywhere so having to pay for any museum is disappointing. But, these exhibits sounded really neat and was actually a nice experience + worth the price to visit!!!

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

    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 ;)

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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!

    A fantastic museum. The teams behind making the exhibits possible really do give it their all.

    Disappointing Degas exhibit, but really neat building. Otherwise a lot of animal art, American, and Asian art during my visit. There's a parking garage right next to the museum. 2$/hour.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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

    Went for general admission ticket was $10. The museum had a DIOR exhibit that was sold out. The lockers require a quarter deposit to operate.

    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!
