Why locals love it

Truth be told, Colorado isn't particularly renowned for art. Most works made in the state are rather folky portrayals of landscapes, cowboys or horses (or all of the above). The Denver Art Museum, hosting a thought provoking exhibition of avant-garde work as well as African and Oceanic collections, is an exception that proves the rule.

Why you should visit it

The Hamilton wing, an angular conglomeration of steel prisms by Daniel Libeskind, supposedly references the contours of the Rocky Mountains but looks like architecture from another world. Despite giving some visitors vertigo with its lack of straight walls and a persistently leaky roof, the structure is an impressive feat of design and engineering.

Special tip

Admission is free for all visitors the first Saturday of every month.
