Denver’s Hidden AttractionsPosted by TheHomeCart.com on Tuesday, October 11th, 2011 at 6:13pm.
Even if you’ve lived in this city all of your life, there are a number of Denver’s hidden attractions you may not have had the opportunity to experience. Denver is an amazingly diverse city, full of all sorts of experiences. Whether you’re into the arts, sports, outdoor activities, cultural experiences, dining or entertainment, Denver’s hidden attractions have a lot to offer you. Go a little ways off the beaten path or down a little-used street and you’ll be truly intrigued by what you find.
Here are some of the best among Denver’s hidden attractions:
- The Brown House Museum. Located at 1340 Pennsylvania Street, this is the home of Molly Brown. Brown was a survivor of the Titanic, and has become central to many of the films and other productions made about that magnificent disaster. Over time, Brown earned the nickname, “Unsinkable.” One of Denver’s hidden attraction is this enduring Victorian home, which tells the daring and perennially interesting story of Molly Brown.
- Kirkland Museum of Fine & Decorative Art. In the late 1950s, the arts community in Denver was struggling. There was but a single art museum featuring contemporary art, and the artistic community was nothing at all to speak of. Today, there are several major art museums as well as a number of smaller ones. Among those smaller ones, we find one of Denver’s hidden attractions. Located at 1311 Pearl Street, this museum features the work of the distinguished Denverite, Vance Kirkland. Kirkland’s abstract artwork still has significant influenct today. You’ll find an additional 3,000+ pieces in this museum, ranging from Glasgow Style to Bauhaus to Art Deco.
- Black American West Museum. This museum is located at 3091 California Street. It highlights and celebrates the role that Black Americans have played in the settling of Colorado. From miners to schoolteachers to blacksmiths to cowboys, Black Americans were an integral part of the old West. Come and see that old West from a different perspective.
- Rockmount Ranch Wear. Papa Jack Weil may have passed away in 2008 at the age of 107, but his legacy lives on. He sold his shirts to everyone from Eric Clapton to Ronald Reagan. The store is located at 1626 Wazee Street, and is worth the visit even if you don’t intend to make a purchase.
