Denver Art Museum: Collections, Exhibitions & Hands-On Activities

Less than a mile from the Crowne Plaza Denver, the Denver Art Museum is comprised of two massive contemporary buildings, with 350,000 square feet of space housing more than 70,000 works of art. Located in Colorado's Civic Center, this five-floor art museum features a diverse collection of American Indian art, and ten permanent collections from Asian, European, and African art to Spanish, pre-Columbian, and Western American pieces. There are also traveling exhibitions on display throughout the year. Take a tour to maximize your time, drop into the Paint Studio to express yourself on canvas, and pick up some souvenirs in the two museum stores.
