I think I learned more about western art at this museum than at other larger museums I have visited. The audio tour covered not only artists, but changing styles and representations of subjects.

A great art museum of western art from early to modern. Well worth a visit . Displayed in a former house of ill repute. A part of Denver's history.

If a billionaire let you into his house for a tour of his private art collection, you would be foolish to say no. This collection tells the story of the American West and contains a wonderful collection of artists and works. The audio tour is excellent and included in the $5 price.

I was in Denver for a business trip and while out walking around the city noticed a unique little building amongst the towers. Luckily the museum was open and I was able to take a tour back in time to view an impressive collection of early western art. My favorite paintings depicted the artists positive observations of tribal ceremonies and... More

Very interesting to see art that was made in the 1800-1990's. The audio portion of the tour gives background to the artist's history and where the art was derived from.
