I went to the museum, and am so glad I did. The museum is a treasure! The price was right (donation) and it was professionally done. I loved each display. Each room was at least as good as the last, or better. A ton of information on 2 floors. If you like to visit museums, as I do, you will... More

This museum was just so-so. The building itself is beautiful and it has a fun, old cage elevator to go up between floors. The exhibits are sparse and spread out in different rooms. We had difficulty understanding what some of the exhibits were all about due to the layout of exhibit and explanation. There was an interesting exhibit about the... More

This place is neat to visit once or twice but not the best museum ever. Has cool history about the area. There is a section dedicated to the recent wild fires. Free.

This is a great museum in a magnificent historic Building. There is a ton of background information & displays of the history of Colorado Springs. Most of the "sites" you visit are mentioned here & the people who established the foundation of this wonderful city. Do yourself a favor & visit this 1st so when you go to the other... More

This is a small museum in the old city hall of Colorado Springs. Probably not a great location for children, but it is very informative about the pioneer history for the local area. They do have an original gated elevator you can ride in, see the old courthouse, and see some of the more recent history... namely from all the... More

The museum was great. It has a exhibit about the Waldo canyon fire, and about pioneers back in time. The exhibits were adequate, but could use some more stuff. Has a Van Gogh exhibit. Enjoyable and fun to do.

Located in a historic building close to downtown, we learned about pioneers history of the area with some displays relevant to current happening in the area. Nice visit.

The building for this museum is gorgeous and full of character. The exhibits were weak and boring. Our family only spent about a half an hour there and saw everything. It is free though, so not disappointed.

Was not expecting much but pleasantly surprised. Some areas for kids but feel they would lose patience due to needing to read information. Kids today want it spoon fed but for adults very well done. Well worth an couple of hours.
