This lovely and intriguing art collection focuses on a short period of time between the 19th and 20th century - about 90 years - during which the West was transformed from an unknown and mysterious region to a settled world. All the art in this salon-style gallery focuses on this transition - Expeditionary Artists, The Hudson River and Rocky Mountain Schools, Narrative Artists, California Painters, Interpreters of the Old West, Taos and Santa Fe Schools, Modernist Art in the West, American Regionalism and New Deal Art. It's a unique way of looking at the evolution of the west. Use the audio guide to truly understand what you are looking at. The beautiful Navarre Building in which the art is housed was built in 1880.

American Museum Of Western Art Of The Anschutz Collection, Denver Reviews - Write a Review
Really great collection, nicely arranged throughout. The building itself is a story worth hearing, let alone each piece displayed. The staff is friendly and does a nice job making sure people don't get too close to the open access art. (Some people are so unaware of their own limbs!) Knowledgeable, friendly staff in a wonderfully historical setting. Thank you, Mr. Anschutz, for making your art available for our viewing. The museum is outstanding.
Ok it's bad enough to support a self glorifying museum about the American West by someone who continues to be a rabid profiteer making billions exploiting and stealing from the lands of that very same American West. I do appreciate an attempt at philanthropy, but the hypocrisy here is ridiculous and would encourage anyone here to look into the history of the collection and where the money came from. However, given all that a public museum is admirable, but with a seemingly infinite budget please at least have a decent and knowledgeable staff and run a professional operation. This is certainly not he case here as the museum is very poorly run and managed. In the future I'll spend my time and energy supporting true patrons of the arts and professional institutions. Please fix this mess with your disrespectful and rude staff and poor museum information for everyone who wants to view the collection in the future.
Enjoyed seeing the Taos Artists represented wonderful collection. Not sure of the Patron’s environmental or social responsibility.
Good if you like art. Reasonable admission, but no photos allowed
Hidden gem and only $5 for the self guided tour, $10 for guided tour. An amazing collection of Western American art the spans from the earliest days of European movement into the west to contemporary painting and sculpture. The paintings are arranged in a dense salon style on the walls of the multi story building. It is a place where you try to be quiet, so not a good place for young kids. There's very little labeling beyond artist - date - title, so you need the audio guide to get a deeper story. I loved the collection, and could have spent hours taking in the art, but even if you breeze through the museum you'll be happy. My only complaint is that they do not have an online list of the artists in the collection, so if you want to remember an artist or specific work, be sure to write it down!
