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

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

Funny thing is I lived in Colorado Springs for 25 years and never visited. On my recent trip to CS it was a cold cloudy day and we needed to find something indoors to do for a while. What a great surprise. First off it's...More

Let's be clear. This is not a "world class" museum, but it doesn't pretend to be. This is a place to learn about Colorado Springs and the surrounding area with a few extras tossed in. It is well worth the couple of hours that it...More

We came on a dreary, rainy day and were looking for something indoors to do in the area. This was a neat way to spend a couple of hours. I enjoy reading and seeing history in bursts, so that’s all the time I could spend,...More

Three levels of exhibit rooms. Very well laid out and informative. Could have spend much more time here if we had it. Would return. It was free of charge.

A very nice museum that accepts donations only for admission with no set amount. Interesting exhibits over several floors. Nice staff. We almost had our wedding and reception here. You can rent out the entire museum for a very reasonable fee.

The building this museum is in was formerly the Colorado Springs courthouse. It is a lovely building with lots of marble. The museum itself is very old fashioned. That is interesting at first, but after a while you begin to see where things should be...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!
