We’ve loved the Denver Art Museum for many years–there’s always something new to see, and with make-it-yourself art stations and family backpacks full of activities, there is so much for families and kids to do and explore!  So we were very excited to learn today that through the generosity of Scott Reiman and Kaiser Permanente,...
