To continue to provide our community with free access to our world-renowned collection (and more!) we offer these online resources to experience what the DIA has to offer while staying home, staying safe, and staying healthy. 

Many supporters have kindly asked how you can support the museum right now. A gift in this critical moment will help sustain operations during this challenging time. Click here to make a gift to the DIA Annual Fund. We thank you for your continued generosity.

School Field Trip from Home | Learning Resources

The DIA Education Staff has several learning resources available for educators, parents and students, many of which don’t require a visit to the museum. From an exercise where our armor collection inspires fantasy writing to “artful adjectives,” lesson plans are available for all grade levels and meet curriculum standards.
