What to See at the Denver Art Museum
The Denver Art Museum offers free general admission to museum visitors on the first Saturdays of every month between January and December of every year. Museum guests get free general admission on the designated Saturdays. There may be a separate fee if you want to gain access to special exhibits. The museum is located at 100 W. 14th Avenue Parkway. The museum’s hours for First Free Saturdays are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The museum has many collections that are worthy of investigating, but there are some that should be especially interesting to residents of Denver, Colorado, whether you’re a transplant or a native. The Petrie Institute of Western Art (PIWAA) oversees the Western Art Collection that consists of paintings, decorative paper arts, and sculpture. The collection of American Indian Art features works that represent the Native American artistic traditions of the U.S. and Canadian Indians from their earliest known history to the present. The Pre-Columbian Collection contains works from Mesoamerica, Central, and South America.
The most noteworthy permanent exhibit in the museum, however, is the Spanish Colonial. It is the most comprehensive collection of Spanish Colonial Art in the United States, and it also happens to be one of the world’s best collections of art from the Spanish Colonial period which covers a span of 300 years from roughly 1492 to 1850. Among the over 3,000 pieces in the exhibition, you’ll find works from the Southwestern United States as well as Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Columbia, Ecuador, Guatemala, Mexico, Panama, Peru, and Venezuela. The Denver Art Museum is just one of many nearby city amenities that you can enjoy for free on First Saturdays. It's just over a mile away from our Denver apartments.
