Clyfford Still Museum
Clyfford Still, considered one of the most important painters of the 20th century, was among the first generation of Abstract Expressionist artists. The museum, which opened at the end of 2011, was founded to promote the late artist's work and legacy. Still's estate – 2,400 artworks – had been sealed off from the public since 1980.
Denver Art Museum
Designed by the renowned Gio Ponti and Daniel Libeskind, this architectural icon houses one of the world's greatest collections of American Indian and Western masterpieces, alongside cutting-edge works and classics from the likes of Picasso, Cezanne and many more.
Denver Botanic Gardens
This 23-acre oasis in the middle of the city has 45 different gardens (some 33,000 plants), as well as one of the nation's top 10 conservatories. Relax in the Japanese Garden, climb through the Rock Alpine Garden and explore the new Mordecai Children's Garden.
Denver Museum of Nature & Science
One of the largest museums in the U.S., the Denver Museum of Nature & Science is a maze filled with treasures of the earth – dinosaurs, dioramas, space exhibits, science experiments, a digital planetarium, IMAX theatre and touring shows.
Go underwater with polar bears, or eyeball-to-eyeball with a gorilla. The Zoo's Predator Ridge recreates the plains of Africa with a pride of lions, while Tropical Discovery is rainforest teeming with crocodiles and gila monsters. The zoo's newest addition is Toyota Elephant Passage, a $50 million, 10-acre home for the Zoo's elephants, gibbons, rhinos and more, all in the heart of an Asian village.
History Colorado Center
The History Colorado Center, one of Denver's newest cultural attractions, is designed to ignite imaginations of all ages about Colorado history through high-tech and hands-on exhibits, programs for children and adults, and special events.
Kirkland Museum of Fine and Decorative Art
