After the walking tour presented by "Downtown Colorado Springs, Historic Faces" (which was excellent) we ended across the street from this museum. We would have never stopped but were so glad we did. Not only is the building itself a gorgeous treasure, the museum is fascinating. We took the free tour and were so absorbed in the information presented by... More

This free museum is full of interesting history about the area. There is a scavenger hunt for the kids that makes it very interactive and exciting for them while you get to look around and read! The elevator is really cool! I learned a lot about how the area came to be and the important people. Make sure to stop... More

I live in Colorado Springs and enjoy taking my kids there for an hour or so; especially because it's donation based. The staff is friendly and nice.

My wife and I initially planned to spend 30 minutes exploring the Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum but stayed almost two hours. This is one of the best FREE museums we have visited. I believe the museum does a nice job presenting the history of Colorado Springs, covering American Indian Culture through the early European settlers. We especially enjoyed reading and... More

Spent an interesting couple of hours looking through all the exhibits on the 2 floors. Beautiful building with an old fashioned working elevator inside. Lots of personal artifacts on show which brought the stories to life. Learned about the local history and characters in Colorado Springs. Well recommended if you're visiting the area.

From the gorgeous building to all the impressive items inside this museum, the Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum was well worth the visit. There were so many items within that are important to the history of Colorado Springs and the surrounding area. We found the entire visit fascinating. Be sure you set aside more than a few hours to enjoy this... More

This museum is good for a nice little visit. When you do plan to go, make sure you block out approximately 1-hour for the trip. Though the exhibits arentwreally kid friendly, there is a little play room located on the first floor. The museum is entirely accessible for handicapped individuals or individuals in wheelchairs as there is an wheelchair entrance... More
