Need somewhere to go on a Saturday? Drive downtown to the Denver Art Museum because it's free to Colorado residents every Saturday! Regular admission runs from $6 - $8 depending on your age (children under 12 get in free).
My family visited this art museum a few Saturdays ago, and it was a fun trip going downtown and seeing artwork.
This museum has 7 floors (I think that's right), and each floor has a different art theme or era. For instance, American art, African art, Eastern art, etc. I was surprised to see statues there, as well as paintings, small and large. The only thing I was disappointed with was that this museum didn't have much modern art - most was old and classic.
If you bring your children with you to the art museum, you can take them to the basement for some art projects/activities! The ones it had when we went were drawing with chalk on chair chalk boards, making a spinning top, and dressing up in costumes and hats - just to name a few. My 1 1/2-year-old daughter had fun doing these things! And so did we, but don't tell anyone!
So, Colorado residents, next time you have an available Saturday, grab your family and head to the Denver Art Museum for some free education and entertainment!
