The museums exhibits are usually overrated and pretentious as is the entire building. The food in the cafe is good but other than that I wouldn't waste my time. I live in the area and have seen very few exhibits that should even be considered...More

The Museum is a nice place to visit. There is no entry charge and on the third floor they serve food with a great view of Aspen Mountain.

The museum was lovely. The exhibit was "over my head". Thank goodness for the very knowledgable docents who helped me (try) to understand some of the art. One of them promised that the art would really give me something to think about. He was right.

Aspen Art Museum positions itself in the art world by purposefully opting to be a non-collecting institution. This means that depending on when you visit, you'll see exhibitions that are temporary and, it's true, you'll either like what's on or you won't. Don't let that...More
