I could have spent all day in the Denver Art Museum; considering the terrible weather that day, I probably should have. The DAM includes two main buildings: the angular building designed by Frederic C. Hamilton–the main museum entrance in the Civic Center Cultural Complex–and the seven-floor north building, where most of the artwork is displayed. The museum has over 68,000 works that encompass everything from ancient civilizations to 17th century Europe to modern day artists. If you’re short on time, check out the gallery map and pick 2 or 3 floors to cover instead of trying to see all 7 of them. It is one of my favorite art museums simply for the vast range of artwork, but it’s a lot to see all at once.
