Free First Saturdays at the Denver Art Museum offers local families and individuals access to the museum, while waiving the General Admission fee.  Museum access and many activities are available at no charge, including bilingual offerings.

Visitors may participate in activities, visit creative stations, play games, view open exhibits, or check out the studios. Celebrate Latin cultura at CelebrARTE, which includes bilingual activities for toda la familia — the whole family.

Free First Saturdays 2016 include these Spring dates:

  • March 5
  • April 2
  • May 7
  • June 4

General Admission for adults, seniors, military, and college students normally runs $8 to $13. Visiting the Denver Art Museum on First Saturdays allows visitors to enjoy the museum and keep those fees in their pockets… or, stop by the museum’s MAD Beans for a cup of coffee, or MAD Greens for a fresh salad.

Note that some ticketed exhibits still require payment of the ticket fee on Free First Saturdays; only the General Admission fee is waived.

Saturday hours are 10am to 5pm.

According to the Denver Art Museum website, sponsors of Free First Saturdays are Your 6 Hometown Toyota Stores, and the citizens who support the Denver metro area’s Scientific and Cultural Facilities District. Their support allows the museum to give free admission to all ages.

The Denver Art Museum is located at 100 W 14th Avenue Pkwy, Denver CO. For more information on Free First Saturdays or current exhibits, visit
