  • Great exhibits and lots of content. I really enjoyed it and it’s FREE. The kids went through it a bit faster then I did but also enjoyed it.

  • First off, the building is cool. It's the old courthouse. Historic buildings are just neat to visit. Inside is really well presented. You can ride the old elevator, see one of the old courtrooms that has been restored, and the exhibits are really well done. Best of all, it is all free!!
  • Having lived in town for two decades I can't believe I waited so long to experience the fabulous Pioneers Museum. This fabulous building contains an assortment of artifacts and stories related to the founding of Colorado Springs. A free admission, friendly and knowledgeable staff, and incredible architecture all compliment the rich history lovingly displayed.
