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:
Linking Asia: Art, Trade, and Devotion
Hamilton Building, Level 1
Choose from three different “adventures” as you travel across Asia. Imagine you are a maker looking for inspiration, a traveling merchant, or a Buddhist monk on a pilgrimage.
Each game has a unique path to follow and five different riddles to solve. Play a different game each time you visit!
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: 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”?
