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

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

The exhibition opens November 19. Member tickets are now on sale. Tickets go on sale to the public at 10 am on October 6.

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, we encourage visitors to listen to one of the audio guides included with the exhibition. There are versions 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.

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, an opportunity to see the exhibition first during the Member Preview, and access to Member Mornings during the holidays.

PARKING

The most convenient place to park is the Cultural Center Complex Garage at 12th Avenue and Broadway. Pre-purchase your parking permit online and guarantee your parking space in the Cultural Center Complex Garage, even when it’s marked full or closed (quantities are limited). To purchase a one-time use ePermit for the garage, visit CulturalParking.com.

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.

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.

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!
