I personally think there are better things to do in Colorado Springs and Manitou Springs. If it is raining, and you're bored, go. It is 7.50 a person, but doesn't take long to go through. My husband and I spent 30-45 minutes there and that includes the gift shop visit. I didn't think the gift shop had anything spectacular. Everything... More

PLAYER PIANO!! Fantastic and interesting for adults and little kids. It was hard for the kids to tear us adults from the huge collection of antique everything from pioneer days, print shop, jail, saloon, shooting gallery, grocery and a series of rooms showing how the city folk would have lived. Seriously, if the kids weren't with us, we probably would... More

The museum is a nice place to stroll. really enjoyed the coin operated attractions, particularly the shooting gallery. If we'd known there were so many options to spend a quarter here and there, we'd have brought some cash and changed it up at the shooting gallery. If you want to take advantage of all the coin-operated options, including some 3-D... More

We stopped in to kill time and it was alright. The gift shop was good and the staff was friendly. It was a little over priced at $7.50/ per adult for what it has to offer. I did enjoy the .25 cent viewers and such.

Stopped in while on Spring Break in Colorado Springs. Great little museum with lots to see and a good gift shop for souvenirs.

Small but, very historical & cute. We enjoyed looking at ourselves in the skinny mirror, & little people mirrors. Seeing how it use to be is always something that intrigues me. The staff in the shop were very friendly & the gifts were a tad bit over priced however; I could not resist & purchased several.

In our last visit to Colorado we went to ghost town expecting a good experience, reality is a small place and not to much to see, if you want to go I suggest you stop at the shop store get your souvenir and do something else

We enjoyed this little museum. It isn't huge, but what they do have is interesting. Very similar to what you would find in Branson, Missouri, but significantly cheaper. People working there aren't particularly friendly. Good way to spend an hour or so. Overpriced gift shop filled with Chinese made items.

There is little information to be had here. Self guided tour, which even reading everything available took 20 minutes. I wouldn't even really call it a museum.
