The DIA was nominated by a panel of experts made up of editors from both USA Today and 10Best.com. The top 10 was then determined by a public vote.
"We couldn't be prouder of our museum, our amazing team, and the community we serve. Thank you to everyone who voted for us and who supports our mission of inspiring and enriching lives through art. We will continue to work hard to provide incredible experiences for our visitors and to celebrate the power of art in all its forms."
