Museum Mystery Tour
Saturday, October 30, 2010 – Sunday, October 31, 2010 |1:00 PM – 4:00 PM
Get into the Halloween mood and commune with the spirits of long-departed artists with a museum mystery tour of the American art galleries. Guides tell tales and secrets about the artists whose work haunts the DIA. You’ve never seen the galleries like this: eerie lighting and sounds in the dark, but we’ll keep it fun and family friendly, so bring the kids (in costume or not), ages five and up. Tours leave from the Great Hall approximately every ten minutes.
