We hadn't been to the new museum yet, so visited on this trip. Very modern/abstract - including one exhibit that we thought was under construction - but that was the exhibit! I'll admit I'm much more a fan of Impressionist and other "older" styles, but...More

The Museum is a nice place to visit. There is no entry charge and on the third floor they serve food with a great view of Aspen Mountain.

This building sticks out and the architecture clashes with the surroundings. There are no permanent exhibits and what we saw was almost laughable. To staff is young and very impressed with the building and exhibits- I hope someday they get to see a proper modern...More

The Asen Art Museum is located in down town Aspen with very little or no parking. All of the exhibits are contempary. Many types and media are displayed. Was able to see all of the exhibits in less than two hours.

This building truly may be the ugliest building in Aspen. How its architecture was ever approved by the powers that be amazes us, as it does not even begin to fit in with the surrounding architecture, nor does it make any attempt to do so--it...More
