The chapel is a must see. Interesting architecture. The interior sanctuaries are incredible. I was surprised how taxing the walk from the chapel to the visitor center was. Go slow. May be the altitude. The golf course looked pretty but was snowed in at time of visit.

Not a lot to see - the visitor's center worth a stop and the chapel is the main draw. It was foggy the day we were there so even limited more than usual. Worth a stop but do not expect to see much of the campus

Definitely a must-see when you're in the area. Although there are areas that are restricted, there's plenty to see and do. The chapel is beautiful. Plan to spend a little time here and be sure to take in the gift shop and the educational area within the visitor's center.

I had a full behind-the-scene tour about 20 years ago so I had to go back. I was a little disappointed these days you can only see so much of the place on your trip, still, it was worth the 90 minutes we had to fill during a wedding weekend we spent in Colorado Springs. If you're not military you... More

The chapel is breathtaking! The stained glass and the organ is absolutely beautiful. Don't rush through, take in all of the details. The campus is well maintained. There are many plaques and displays to stop and enjoy.

We mostly went to see the Cadet Chapel, and it did not disappoint. The whole campus is beautiful. Very cool and lots of history.

What a beautiful campus. The Chapel is a beautiful building inside and out. I was very impressed with everything we saw there.
