  • If you are into mid-century modern furniture, this is a museum for you. The hours are short, so please time it right. I did like that they had free lockers available to put your back-bags in since you...  more »

  • This extraordinary museum has been one of my worldwide favorites since it first opened in 2003. The new building, which opened March 20, 2018, is beautifully designed and provides more intelligent space for the collections. The original studio building is seamlessly integrated. This is a rare opportunity to see both Kirkland's own work plus Colorado and regional art in context with all types of decorative arts from furniture to tableware. There is a nice Visitor Lounge and a beautiful Museum Store. Visiting this museum is a memorable experience.
  • The new facility is absolutely beautiful! So much more spacious; there is no longer the need to weave among items with the sense that you might actually trip over them. It seems like there is so much more on display, but you can focus on one gallery at a time to make it more manageable. There is something wonderful everywhere you turn, and when you turn there again you'll see something else wonderful you missed the first time. Spend an afternoon or several or one a month. It's a fantastic journey.
  • This museum is so cool. The highlight is the replica of Kirkland's studio. It is a completely unique and fascinating museum!
  • The new museum was sooo amazing that we joined. It was sooo enjoyable and incredible how many pieces were displayed. Will definitely go again soon.
  • Beautiful museum with an impressive collection of artwork. Loved the FLW pieces and found a new love in Vance Kirkland!
