Helpful Tips for Your Visit to Dior: From Paris to the World

Nov. 19, 2018-March 3, 2019

Here are some tips and guidelines to help you plan your visit to the Denver Art Museum exhibition Dior: From Paris to the World.

ACCESS

The DAM strives to be accessible to everyone. Wheelchairs and strollers are welcome in the museum and galleries and may be borrowed from the welcome centers. Scooters and motorized wheelchairs also are permitted, as are canes and walkers that convert to stools. You may also use the museum-provided gallery stools (available at the exhibition entry).

Large-print booklets containing the exhibition text are available for complimentary use in the exhibition.

Learn more about museum accessibility.

AUDIO GUIDES

For information about the objects on view, there is a booklet and audio guide that accompanies the exhibition. There are different versions of audio guides for adults and families, both available in English and Spanish. Audio guides are included with the price of the ticket.

  • Please keep the volume on your audio guide at a reasonable level.
  • All hand-held audio devices come with a headset.
  • You also may opt to use your own earbuds plugged into the hand-held audio device.
  • Please ask a gallery host if you have any questions about using the audio guide.
  • Feel free to experiment with either guide or check them both out.

EVENTS

Planning an event at the Denver Art Museum? Enhance your guests' experience with a private gallery viewing of Dior before or after museum hours. Contact eventinfo@denverartmuseum.org for more information. Find out more about event rental options.

FAMILIES

Kids and families are invited! There's a special audio guide for families and a fun activity for youngsters. Children 5 and under receive free admission, and those age 6-18 see the exhibition for $5. (Youth tickets are free with Family level membership and above.)

FOOD & DRINK

Please do not have any food or drink in the galleries. The Callahan Café in the Shop on level one is a great place to buy and enjoy drinks and snacks.

GROUP VISITS

College and adult groups (10 or more people) can receive group-rate admission with advance reservations. Two-week advance reservations required. To make reservations or schedule your group tour today, call 720-913-0088 or email groupsales@denverartmuseum.org.

LOCKERS

For your safety and comfort as well as the protection of the objects, we ask that you store large bags and backpacks (including purses) before you enter gallery spaces. Free lockers are available on the first and lower levels for your convenience.

MEMBERS

Members receive half-price tickets for Dior and access to Member Mornings during the holidays.

Not a member? Join today.

PARKING

Parking is available on the street (meters and lot) and in the Cultural Center Complex Garage at 12th Avenue and Broadway.

Learn more about directions and parking.

PHOTOGRAPHY

We are a photography-friendly museum, and photography without a flash for personal use is permitted unless otherwise noted. Please do not use tripods, monopods, or similar equipment in the galleries. Use the hashtag #DiorinDenver to see what others are sharing online.

RENOVATION

The North Building is under renovation. During renovation, exhibitions like Stampede: Animals in Art showcase paintings, sculptures, photographs, and more from the DAM's collection.

SCHOOL GROUPS

School groups will be visiting on Monday and Wednesday mornings. Weekdays in the late afternoons and Friday evenings when the museum is open late are a great option to enjoy the exhibition during quieter times.

TICKETS

Tickets are good for one-time entry into the exhibition on the date and time printed on your ticket. We anticipate that exhibition entry times will sell out, so advance ticket purchase is recommended to guarantee access to the exhibition. Tickets include a complimentary audio guide, and admission to the rest of the museum, including Rembrandt: Painter as Printmaker.

QUESTIONS?

If you have any questions, feel free to ask at the welcome center on level one, or ask in advance by calling 720-913-0130. Volunteers and staff throughout the museum also are happy to help.

We look forward to your visit!
