“See Strick's portraits”
Reviewed 10 August 2014 via mobile

This is a very nice regional museum. It is a little awkward in its layout, probably due to the innovative architecture. I thought that it was interesting that there appeared to be more New Mexican art than local Colorado art.

“Start with a Tour”
Reviewed 7 August 2014

I started with a highlights tour at 11 am. The guide took us to each floor of the museum in the Hamilton addition and the old part showing us a couple pieces from each and encouraging us to come back to the areas we found most interesting. This was a perfect way to enjoy the museum and acclimate yourself to the exhibits.

“Excellent exhibits”
Reviewed 4 August 2014

Not that I've been to many art museums, but this one is huge and there's always something new to see every month! Great for western art. I usually go on the 1st Saturday of the month as it's the free day that is sponsored by Target (yea Target!), so I haven't seen the changing special exhibits they have. I've gone about 6 times and still didn't really get to see everything because there are special changing exhibits that are free to the general admissions. They have kids areas where you can play or create your own art. You can learn about how artwork is restored as well. Sometimes they have concerts or collaborate with other local and non-local museums (e.g. the last month I was there they had a special visiting exhibit from the Buffalo Albright-Knox). There is a restaurant on site. They have free wheelchairs; lockers are available as they have bag size restrictions.

It's entirely too big to see all in one day in my opinion (though I read slowly), but it is in a good location surrounded by other Denver site-seeing spots. The Central Library across the way also has rolling art exhibits on the 5th & 7th floors and the CO state capitol is worth their free tour, not to mention the shopping on the 16th St. Mall. with it's free trolly ride.
