At MCA Denver teens are our primary youth audience because we believe that teens, like artists, are interested in challenging conventions and questioning the rules. In addition teens are an underserved audience in museums. We strive to be the premier cultural space for all teen audiences by providing teens a safe place to express themselves and connect with art. From our intensive internship program, Failure Lab, where a select group of high school-aged teens risk failure while creatively planning programs and events, to our informal drop-in program led by professional artists, the museum offers a robust suite of programs for all teens.
MCA Denver is proud to be the first museum in Denver to offer FREE admission to teens.
