  • The Denver Art museum is a great visit while visiting Denver. It's relatively quick to get through (due to a portion of the museum currently being closed) for a museum and has a lot of phenomenal exhi...  more »
  • The architecture of the current Art Museum building that is open can be a little "trippy" due to the prevalence of non-90-degree-angle walls. Planned to spend an entire day there until we learned the ...  more »
  • Read about the Denver Art Museum in a brochure at our B&B and decided to check it out. A large portion of the museum is dedicated to Native American artifacts. Really found it interesting and unique. ...  more »

  • The staff and art work exhibited at the time of my arrival were amazing. The people are so nice and caring. And the art was exceptional. They had a Degas exhibit at the time and it was amazing to see all the wonderful art that he made. There was another exhibit of I believe it was Past the Tangled Present, it was so much fun very interactive and very captivating! Honestly come when you have a lot more time cause you could spend the entire day there!
  • Went to the Degas exhibit as a surprise after-birthday brunch with parents. The exhibit happened to be the perfect place to quietly work through my hangover while appearing to be classy and cultured (and totally NOT hungover) at the same time. All in all, my post inebriated state really let me focus on how beautiful the exhibit is. The story-line way of recreating his early history, and the gradual shift to his focuses as an artist really speak to the artistic individual and you leave with a renewed inspiration to paint and create art yourself. Truly a great experience.
  • I've never met such nice and kind employees on a school trip. Although we did not have a school group reservation Liz one of the school group employees was much help and willing to help my school kids find a place to sit. Also the clean up crew allowed us to finish our lunches without rushing us. There are lots of interesting art pieces to see as well as activities to do. This Museum is kid friendly and I intend to come back a few more times this year.
  • Just went to see the Edgar Degas exhibit at the Denver Art Museum. It was a wonderful experience which taught me a lot about the artist. He worked in a variety of mediums and was constantly striving for unattainable perfection. Whether he was painting horses or ballerinas, Degas was fascinated by the concept of transferring the illusion of motion to a static canvas. Yet, he succeeded brilliantly in his endeavors to do so. This Degas exhibit is only being shown at the Denver Art Museum and nowhere else in America. Don't miss an opportunity to see such an eclectic, enlightening & unique exhibit.
  • The Degas exhibit was stunning and diverse. We walked through the entire museum and took our time in each exhibit. If you're a non member and an adult, it is currently $28 per person but there is a lot to see so its worth the money. This is a family friendly atmosphere and it is great for a date as well :)
