While you’re here
A young, active city with a ton of urban energy, your trip to Denver will be filled with adventures inside and out.
Visit the amazing Denver Art Museum, with its striking building designed by Daniel Libeskind and explore one of the world’s most comprehensive collections of Native American art works alongside cutting edge modern works and Impressionist masterpieces. Next door, the Clyfford Still Museum showcases masterpieces from the nearly 2,000-piece collection of the famed, but famously reclusive, American abstract expressionist artist.
A must-see attraction is the famous Red Rocks Park & Amphitheatre, which was named the top outdoor music venue in the country by Rolling Stone magazine, and has hosted everyone from The Beatles to Bruce Springsteen. Stop by the Visitor Center, featuring the Performers Hall of Fame, dedicated to artists who have performed at a concert under the stars at this unforgettable venue, visit the Trading Post that also hosts the Colorado Music Hall of Fame, or hike the beautiful trails that surround the amphitheatre.
The Denver Museum of Nature & Science is home to an IMAX theatre, a state of the art planetarium and thousands of natural treasures, ranging from space vehicles to dinosaur fossils. Adjacent to the museum, the Denver Zoo is a safari in the city, featuring such exhibits as Predator Ridge – home to a pride of majestic African lions – and the must-see Toyota Elephant Passage, which transports you to a village where you’ll encounter enormous Asian elephants, rhinos and tapirs.
