The museum was lovely. The exhibit was "over my head". Thank goodness for the very knowledgable docents who helped me (try) to understand some of the art. One of them promised that the art would really give me something to think about. He was right.

The exterior of this museum and the remarkable outside bench are absolutely outstanding (see photos). Unfortunately, the leaves me cold.

The Asen Art Museum is located in down town Aspen with very little or no parking. All of the exhibits are contempary. Many types and media are displayed. Was able to see all of the exhibits in less than two hours.

This is a quick (free) visit which is a convenient must-see break from the slopes. Interesting and modern, the two large exhibit rooms are thoughtfully curated.

I love this place. I have seen some really exciting exhibits here. Many quite challenging, and needing of explanation. Which, it so happens, is fine, as at the entrance to each gallery there is a pamphlet explaining about the artists and their motives. And if...More

This is a difficult place to rate. The museum is so stunningly beautiful on the outside (for example see the photo of the benches on the sidewalk next to the museum), but the art on the inside is just not interesting. I've been to the...More
