Denver Art Museum: Great Activity for Busy Professional Families
As an interior designer who works with many busy professional families in the Denver area, I know how important and precious that time they spend together is. With Christmas and the New Year upon us, and many children out of school, families across the Denver metro area are looking for fun activities to spend time together. It can be a challenge to find something that interests the entire family, but I think our local art museum does a tremendous job in accomplishing that task.
The Denver Art Museum has great programs and exhibits for everyone in the family. They do an especially wonderful job at catering to and engaging children. Even the DAM (yes, that is the acronym) website has a section for kids, complete with online games, information about camps and classes, and a guide for parents on the best parts of the museum for kids. Through January 1, 2012, the museum is offering winter activities like Chinese kite-making to accompany its current exhibits on Chinese modern art and silks. For children 5 and under, general admission to the museum is even free!

The museum has one of the most helpful websites I've seen in a long time. You can plan your day by seeing the restaurants that are nearby, can get more information on current and traveling exhibits, and can even purchase tickets.
