Overview
More
Kirkland Museum of Fine & Decorative Art has relocated to a new golden building in Denver’s Golden Triangle Creative District. The museum’s new building offers visitors an enhanced experience with more display space while staying true to the salon style and intimate atmosphere for which the Kirkland is known. The museum’s three collections are: • International Decorative Art—A celebrated collection including notable examples of every major design period from Arts & Crafts to Postmodern. • Colorado & Regional Art—The largest repository of art showcasing the state and region’s talent, concentrating on the 1840s through the 1990s with about 7,000 works more than 700 artists. • Vance Kirkland Retrospective—Kirkland (1904–1981) is generally considered Colorado’s most distinguished modern painter. About 550 paintings and about 600 drawings and prints are held in his estate collection. Note: Due to the fragile nature of the collections children must be 13 or older to be admitted.

The very impressive new building allows the Kirkland to exhibit its extraordinary decorative arts collection in a space that it deserves. The staff, including volunteers, are well-informed and enthusiastic. We believe the Kirkland ranks favorably with comparable museums in Berlin, Milan and elsewhere, perhaps because...More

The Kirkland just moved into a new building designed specifically for them in March, 2018. The collection is organized by time period, and the salons include furniture, lighting, pottery, sculpture and other elements you find in a living space. You are transported to each period...More

We loved the furniture, the Colorado-centric art, and the wide variety of small pieces! So many ideas in such a small space.

The new Kirkland is a great addition to Denver's museum row. Be sure to see Kirkland's studio which was transported from its previous location in a fascinating move down city streets. Amazing to see how he painted suspended from a sling to reach his large...More

I was lucky enough to go to the preview and what an interesting collection. I loved seeing the Frank Lloyd Wright furniture, in particular. They also moved an entire brick building that housed the studio of the namesake artist, and it's now attached to this...More

This is a fascinating place. The museum highlights 20th century design, and its curators have an eye for the original and the wonderful. The old location was a little cramped, but the design for the new building looks incredible. I am looking forward to the...More

Besides the artist's own mind-opening art displayed well on the walls, his collection of cultural artifacts is worth the visit in and by itself.

This is an amazing and eclectic collection of art and furniture. Some by Kirkland himself, but also a huge collection from other artists. It's going to be moving but the original location has great character.

This museum has the most incredible collection and the way it is organized is fantastic. The art here is beyond what one would get to see at the Denver Art Museum and it is more fun and less stuffy than the DAM too.
