For one of the largest art museums in the United States, you shouldn't miss the Denver Art Museum! Here you can find a very diverse collection of art from all over the world. From modern and contemporary art to asian art to design, there is really a lot to see. Therefore, this museum is perfect if you are looking for art! You can visit the museum for free during certain days of the year. For an overview of the free days, check out this page.
3. Listen to free jazz music
For free jazz concerts go to City Park Jazz! In my opinion, one of the most fun free things to do in Denver! During the summer months there are regular concerts at the pavilion in City Park. You should bring your own blankets or chairs to sit in the grass. Also, even when it's raining the concerts will be there, so bring your own umbrella when there is rain!
4. Discover the Colorado State Capitol
To learn more about the Colorado State Capitol building you can take a free tour! During this tour you will not only see the beautiful building, but you will also learn about the history of Colorado, the workings of the General Assembly of Colorado, and other parts of Colorado. However, you can also just see the building for free without doing a tour, which is also great!
5. Go for a relaxing stroll in the park
What better way than to relax by going to the park? Go to City Park for a relaxing stroll, for picnicking, for jogging, or to something else! It is truly a beautiful park. In the park you will also find beautiful lakes, a zoo and several museums!
6. See where money comes from
See where money is made at the Denver Mint! Here you will see how billions of coins are produced each year for the American public. The tour is free! However, be sure to register in advance as you will need a free ticket! The tour lasts approximately 45 minutes. Because it is so interesting, it is also one of the best things to do in Denver in general.
7. Do a free art walk
Another one of the free things to do in Denver is the art walk. Every first friday of the month you can participate in the First Friday Art Walk. During the walk you will go through Denver's Art District on Santa Fe and see some of the best artworks from hundreds of artists displayed in galleries, studios, on the street, and many other places.
