    I've been to art museums all over the world and Denver's Clyfford Still Museum is among the best. If you are a fan of Still's work or a fan of American Abstract Expressionism in general, you need to visit this place!

    It is small and cozy yet has an amazing collection of his work, from watercolors, chalk and ink drawings to his most well-known, totally immersive giant painted canvases! The first floor has some introductory type stuff: Still's personal letters (be sure to read his handwritten one to Jackson Pollock), newspaper clippings, personal books and Still's own artist's box with paint. There's a video that constantly plays in the lobby next to the very tiny gift area.

    The upper floors have a great sample of his work on display. It's well organized and displayed but disappointingly, not much information about the works. I'm hoping that this will change as the museum grows. If a tour is offered while you are there, take it. An audio tour would be a lovely addition but the least they could do is make an effort to put some write-ups about each work next to each piece.

    The architecture here is pretty great too. The interior has light wood floors and the walls are textured gray concrete, reflecting the texture that you can see in so many of Still's paintings. The pieces were appropriately hung and displayed for optimal viewing. There are two outdoor terraces where you can sit and relax. And best of all, photography is allowed indoors (no flash, of course).

    You should allow at least an hour to see everything and art lovers will want more time. Admission was $10, which is a great bargain considering the much less stellar Denver Art Museum next door charges $13 to get in.

    Spectacular paintings and great installation of the works. A must see in Denver for art lovers. I had tremendous appreciation for his work after walking out of here.
