If you're traveling with an art lover or you yourself just happen to be one, we think you'll be pretty pleased at the amount of world-class cultural institutions available to you here when you stay at the Holiday Inn Cherry Creek of Denver! For a more modern take on art, your best bets include the newly constructed Clyfford Still Museum and the Museum of Contemporary Art Denver. But at the end of the day, everyone comes for the monolithic Denver Art Museum. With a bombastic permanent collection of over 70,000 works of art, nothing beats it!
Perhaps one of the most unique aspects of the museum is its stunning collection of Native American art. Featuring over 16,000 pieces of original artwork that spans across generations from nearly every North American tribe, their American Indian collection is one of the biggest in the world. From original artwork to handcrafted artifacts and weapons, these galleries provide a stunning look into many rich cultures and heritages, from pre-colonial to current day artwork from contemporary artists.
It's not just North America though. The museum also has a dedicated wing to the Pre-Columbian artwork of almost every major culture in Central and South America, giving the visitor a truly special glimpse into the unique history of the Americas.
Nestled up in Civic Center Park, the museum is open Tuesday through Sunday. Check out their website for a full list of galleries and special exhibits, and feel free to ask our friendly stay here at the Holiday Inn for directions!
