This is a hidden treasure. Note the limited hours and rearrange your schedule! Thos is an amazing collection of western art! The building's history is interesting as well! Stop by the Brown Palace which is across the street as long as you are in the...More
It was snowing in Denver, but we received a warm welcome in the American Museum of Western Art. The audio that goes with the exhibition is a must, and is particularly well done. We liked the combination of the display of staged aspects of the...More
Hard to find. The guy at the front desk was unfriendly/unhelpful. The collection was okay but the lighting was terrible; the light was very bright and reflected on a lot of the pieces. Many pieces were too close to each other. Clunky set-up. There was...More
Truly wonderful collection in a building with a chequered history. Spent hours looking around. Front room on each level is set up as a Victorian parlour and gives a great atmosphere. The elevator alone is a museum piece.
No photography is allowed.
The entrance in the basement is quite discreet (we thought it was closed) but once inside one is met by a wholly outstanding collection of western art and an excellent audio guide which usefully talks to a group of pictures rather individual paintings. This is...More

The collection of art is wonderful and helps to create a sense of the history of the American West. It is chock full of pieces from the last 300 years. I enjoyed my self-guided tour, and the information in the audio tour is very helpful....More

I saw the greatest collection of art of the American West, Monday, in downtown Denver. It was in a museum founded eight years ago by a little-known American billionaire: I think his name is Philip Anschutz, a Kansan by birth with...More
As expensive as museums are in Denver, it's hard to believe the cost of admission is only $5, and that includes an audio device that you can take with you as explore the museum. It has a lot of information on it! This museum covers...More

If you never have been there, I would recommend signing up for the guided tour. They do a great job of giving you the history behind western art, and what the artists were trying to capture depending upon the times and the specific areas where they were painting. It makes it much more interesting having this information.
