414 14th St, Denver, CO, United States
In 2006, the Denver Art Museum expanded to a total of 350,000 square feet and did it with flair, connecting the original structure with the newly constructed Frederic C. Hamilton Building across the street. The contemporary exterior with enclosed walkway is strikingly situated over 13th Avenue. Always known for its permanent collection of American Indian and pre-Columbian art, the museum now holds 60,000 works and continues to attract additional temporary exhibitions—from historic baseball photos to borrowed treasures from The Louvre. Interactive displays, tours and children's activities are marks of a venue dedicated to making art more accessible and relatable to the general public. Annual wine-focused "DAM Uncorked" serves as both a fundraiser and must-attend event. Generally, museum gift shops are a treat and the one located inside the Denver Art Museum is no exception—as is its onsite, creatively casual restaurant Palettes.
