Visited on a Thursday after a meeting so only got an hour. Saw the Rivera murals, which was a must, and several other galleries. Wish we had a full day. Price reasonable. Located just off the downtown, easy to get to.

Went to the DIA on a recent Friday evening and had a lovely tour with a docent. We also had a light meal in the cozy restaurant. The visit was certainly worth our time!
