Museum Relocation to Golden Triangle

Kirkland Museum is building a new facility and relocating to 12th Avenue and Bannock Street, near the Denver Art Museum and the Clyfford Still Museum, in Denver's Golden Triangle Museum District. The museum is currently in the design phase, with an expected groundbreaking to take place in mid-2015 and opening in early 2017. We encourage you to review the materials below and check back often for updates on this exciting phase in the museum’s history.
