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.

My 10 year old Grandson absolutely loved this Ghost Town. We spent 3 hours there. I felt safe letting him roam. They have an impressive petrified log, model T Ford cars txt you can sit in and pretend to drive. They have "mock up rooms" with antiques, etc. He enjoyed pushing buttons and listening to the different narratives from the... More

The old west street is inside an old railroad building. Its fun to peer into the storefronts BUT they are recreated and you don't get the feel that these are real ghost town relics.

A look at how people lived and worked hard without modern gadgets. Man/Woman power is what they had to survive. It was fascinating and we loved all the artifacts, stagecoach, pharmacy, general store, saloon, firehouse. Great way to spend some time!!!

This museum is little but is totally worth the $7.50 it totally gives you an insight of what the Wild West use to be. They have lots of things that you can actually touch so that is always great for when you have kids or in my case a dad that likes to touch everything!

We expected to find some sort of Ghost story place, haunted tales etc. but when we arrived we realized our mistake...."Ahhh, Ghost town, now I see." But hey, we were there, we sought it out, why not. We paid the fee and went in. There honestly was a lot to see, and neat things if you take your time and... More
