Gallery Games for kids and families at the Denver Art Museum

Gallery Games

Gallery games are a fun way for kids and families to look closely at artworks and for families to enjoy exhibitions together. As with all hands-on family activities at the Denver Art Museum, gallery games are available in both English and Spanish.

Look for gallery games in these exhibitions:

Read the Story of How Ganesha Broke His Tusk, an illustrated book cover of the storybook created by the Denver Art Museum

Ganesha: The Playful Protector

Hamilton Building, Level 2

An illustrated storybook tells how the Hindu-deity Ganesha broke his tusk. Spot the details in the artwork as you read along!

Stampede Gallery Game

Stampede: Animals in Art

Hamilton Building, Level 3

This scavenger hunt-like game will help kids and families slow down and look closely at the art throughout the exhibition as you try to check off all the items on your list. In this game all the animals have gone missing from the zoo and need to get home! We are looking for enthusiastic zookeepers to help us spot them in the museum galleries.

Keep an eye out for animals that belong in each enclosure, including one that is “brightly colored” and another that “makes the loudest noise.” Can you find an animal “you’ve never seen before”?

Rembrandt self portrait

Rembrandt: Painter as Printmaker

Hamilton Building, Level 1

Step into the world of the legendary Dutch artist when Rembrandt: Painter as Printmaker opens September 16. Pick up an LCD drawing board and decide how you would complete some of Rembrandt van Rijn’s featured prints. After filling in the blanks, compare your creations to Rembrandt’s masterworks.
