Denver Art Museum - Part 1
When I was in Denver Colorado for a week in early December, in order to attend my grandson's first birthday party, my husband and I were able one afternoon to visit the beautiful Denver Art Museum, located on 13th Ave between Broadway and Bannock Street in the Civic Center Cultural Complex. The museum is comprised of two buildings-- the North Building and the Frederic C. Hamilton Building. The 356,000-square-foot museum complex includes collection gallery space, three temporary exhibition venues, and the Lewis I. Sharp Auditorium. In addition to its extensive art collections, the museum has a family friendly environment, and has received critical acclaim for encouraging art appreciation through interactive activities.
This is one of the children's play areas in the museum, which encourages children to be creative through play activities and the use of art materials.
