Experience 25 years of Denver International Airport!

Curated by the DEN Arts Program
March 2020 to June 2020
Jeppesen Terminal
Ansbacher Hall, Level 6 North, before A Bridge Security

Denver International Airport (DEN) is officially 25 years old! Passengers can take a walk down memory lane and peruse through, you guessed it, 25 display cases that are filled with DEN and pop-culture memorabilia.

The exhibit features mementos from the past 25 years, including fossils found during the construction of DEN, a 3D airport diagram and even touchable-DEN tent material. Passersbys can also view historic videos that are playing alongside the cases and read about the visionaries who imagined the airport.

Large-scale timeline and accomplishment boards along Ansbacher Hall tell a story of DEN’s record-breaking growth and evolution to become the number-one economic powerhouse for the region. The display cases are broken out in five-year spans and will take passengers on a journey from opening day, Feb. 28, 1995, to present day.

The 25th anniversary is located in Ansbacher Hall, in the Jeppesen Terminal on Level 6 North before A-Bridge Security.
