This museum is worth a stop even just to view the interior, it's impressive (and free). The displays were interesting and highly relevant to the area. The staff is friendly. I like to read more at museums than the average person but the interpretive material was overly detailed as well as being difficult to read(small type, dim and sometimes awkwardly... More

This Museum has some of the coolest exhibits you will ever see. Some Old West things, along with great Art, and other exhibits. As you use the old fashioned elevator it will make you smile. It is worth your time to visit The Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum.

I spent a couple of hours at this beautiful old courthouse that is filled with interesting exhibits. We started with a guided tour that was very informative with a tour guide that was engaging and informative. It would be easy to go to this museum multiple times to see different parts of it, since it is free. I was impressed... More

Free museum in a beautiful old courthouse building provides a nice look at the history of Colorado Springs and surrounding areas. When I was there they were having a day of musical performances and also had some hands on activities for kids.The staff was very friendly and were situated throughout to engage visitors.

The museum has a variety of interesting displays with a lot of neat facts about Colorado Springs. Some of the displays have unique hands on learning, such as the interactive maps on the top floor. The building is beautiful and still has the original elevator, which is neat to ride in. Out side of the museum you can walk around... More

The security guard/ front desk man was soooo nice and informative. He really likes his job. They have a cute area for young children, and young kids will also LOVE elevator. The exhibits are nice and don't take long to get through. The woman working in the gift shop was super friendly, as well.

We enjoyed the museum and was a good learning experience about the area's history, past activities and people. There is a very nice play area for the young ones and staff where very friendly. Found parking easily. Allow about 2 hours to explore all the exhibitions. Overall very pleasant experience at no charge. We did make a small donation.

One of the best parts of this museum is the elevator that is over 100 years old. My 7-year-old and I went up and down for quite some time and nobody bothered us. It's so much fun to ride.
