This was a lot of fun for my boys!

There's a gift shop, area to pan for gold and an inside museum area that is FULL of back in the day machines, vehicles, clothing a saloon, and a shooting range, etc.

A few neat antiques to look at, but very small and not worth the time or money considering how many other neat things are in the area. If you are an old west fan maybe it is your thing.

This is a fun place that can be visited in a few hours. It's a recreated Old West Town, easy to navigate and full of interesting history and fun facts. We enjoyed the many interesting things there and recommend it. Great for children.

The people were very nice, and I found some of the items on display interesting, but my 6 year old son was really bored. We aren't really old west buffs, so we aren't the target audience. I'd say only go if looking at everyday objects form the 1800's excites you.

It was a Sunday after church and we had two of our grandsons for the day (22 months and 4 years old) and were looking for something to do. I have lived in Colorado Springs since 1984 and never been here! Here's the basics... it's $7.50 per adult, the boys were free. It's probably overpriced, pretty much a one large... More

This is just another hwy 24 tourist trap. Come see the old west... give me a break. I checked it out last summer and it was the same old thing... not worth the money

The Ghost Town Museum is, quite frankly, not worth the price of admission. I guess if you're just passing thru town and want something to do for an hour or two with little kids it would be okay, but I wouldn't make it a priority for sure. If you want more of an authentic "ghost town" feel, I'd visit South... More

My kids loved it when they were younger and now my grandchildren love it. A taste of the old west, a cute gift shop, and panning for gold make this a fun destination for all ages.
