  storm the castle!

At the center of Denver's "Golden Triangle" is the Denver Museum of Art. The Golden Triangle refers to the portion of Denver that holds the cultural treasures of the city. The Denver Museum of Art showcases works of modern art, classical, asian, and a floor devoted to the "Western Art," that I am admittedly not too fond of. All of this is spread over about fve floors in the building (I don't know my architectural styles) that looks like a castle.

When Denver is under siege by Wyoming you will know where to find me.

Directly South of the current museum you can witness a little bit of construction under way. This is the Fredrick C. Hamilton buildng museum expansion project. Slated to be completed in 2006 this is scheduled to be the first Libeskind designed building completed in North America. He is the designer of the Jewish Museum in Berlin and the winner of the competition for the building design on the site of the former World Trade Centers.

Address: 13th and Bannock.
Directions: South of the Civic Center Park one block.
