Big photos below.
Last month, we shared a post about Denver's top twelve tourist attractions based on attendance, as calculated by Visit Denver.

But what about those places that are well worth checking out but aren't nearly as well known as Red Rocks and the 16th Street Mall? Visit Denver's Denver.org site features a top-eleven list (because ten just weren't enough) of what it describes as "hidden gems." Look below to see its picks, complete with photos, contact info and Visit Denver text.

Number 11:

There's nowhere else you're going to see a pair of inflatable, 16-foot-tall rubber bunnies, right? One of the Mile High City's most fascinating art locales, The Dikeou Collection is a private collection of contemporary art, with photography, drawings, sculptures, and installations by more than 25 artists from around the world. Free and open to the public, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. or by appointment.

Denver, CO 80206

An incredible collection of miniatures, dolls and toys ranging from the 16th century to modern times, this museum fills all ages with a sense of wonder. The collection includes Japanese dolls, giant teddy bears, minutely detailed antique dollhouses, and tiny trains, planes and cars.

@April Bryant The Hammoond's Candy tour was so stupid. It was like 2 minutes long. I spend a few hours driving down to the factory then I watch a 3 min video then I go back and see how they make the candy and that part was literally 2 minutes long then it was over. What a waste of time.
