Colorado State Capitol
Talk about great views! You can see 200 mountains from the dome of the State Capitol and delight in the panorama of snowcapped peaks. On weekdays, free tours are available.
Denver Art Museum
This museum is comprised of two absolutely stunning buildings. One looks like a giant crystal with shards and peaks, and the other is a fortress-like structure. The museum features a plethora of fantastic works of art, including the biggest collection of Native American art in the world.
Interestingly, its statues are one of the things Denver’s most famous for. Why? The city’s cast-iron horses and marble monuments may attract attention, but what’s even more fascinating is that one horse is blue and made of fiberglass. Locals call this horse Blucifer because its sculptor died after a part fell on him. Another artistic piece is the blue bear outside the Convention Centre. People from far and wide love taking photographs by the 40-foot statue.
