My first visit to the Denver Museum of Art (DAM). The current exhibit was The Western and I also saw several other temporary exhibits such as Word Dance plus lots of Asian, Greek, African and other art in the permanent collection.
Photos of my tour of the Molly Brown House Museum in the elite Capitol Hill neighborhood of Denver, Colorado. Margaret Brown was a socialite, but not the raucous loudmouth of the movies. Her Victorian house has been lovingly restored and refurbished so you can see what it was like as a wealthy inhabitant of Colorado in the 1800s.
The Museum of Fine Art in St. Petersburg, Florida, is small but impressive. I've visited it more or less regularly for years, and they present quality exhibitions in a professional environment. A 2006 expansion allows the museum to offer a cafe and respectable gift shop, in addition to their permanent collection and revolving exhibits. It's a fine way to spend an afternoon, especially if you include the nearby Dali Museum in your itinerary.
Right on the water in St. Petersburg Florida is a modern and unusual building. The surreal yet sumptuous architecture of the Dali Museum is worth the experience, no matter what's on display. But you'll want to stay for the permanent collection plus whatever they have in the temporary exhibit halls, too.
