Well presented history of the area. There is a `timeline' exhibit that walks you through history. On the 3rd floor the original courtroom has been restored. Since my last visit over a decade ago they have included many of the contributions, culture and story of...More
The Pioneers Museum should be on the must do list to any new El Paso County resident. The history of this area is rich and the museum does an excellent job of telling the history of the area. The dossiers do an excellent job answering...More
There is so much history connected to what locals describe as the Pikes Peak region that it is appropriate to have a museum dedicated to preserving and sharing the cultural history of the Rocky Mountains area. The Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum in Colorado Springs, Colorado,...More

Admission by donation, it's free to see which historical sites should be! I can't imagaine walking in this court house to defend myself. An old courtroom remains intact like something out of Perry Mason. A great history of Colorado Springs. Wish it was bigger!
