The Cell is an unusual museum in that it focuses on terrorism and how you as an individual can understand it and hopefully prevent it. The museum relies heavily on multimedia presentations such as large-screen TVs showing film clips of terror events and world leaders speaking out against it.
The museum makes note that terrorism comes in a variety of forms, such as domestic terror like Timothy McVeigh and a wide variety on international terror groups like al Qaeda and the IRA. The only thing the disparate groups have in common is the belief that violence and death is justified to get their point across.
I thought the museum was very informative and compelling, and reminded me of just how many terror attacks have occurred in the last 30 years. However, it is a bit scary and not a ‘’feel good’’ place to visit. It’s easy to find right next to the Denver Art Museum and worth visiting if you are in the right mood.
