Free museum in a wonderful building with exhibits that appeal to all ages and interests. Definitely worth your time if you are interested in learning the history of the Front Range.

We were lucky enough to go when they had school children on costume playing historical characters. This made the whole visit.

We stopped here thinking it would be a quick walkthrough and we were very surprised. What an interesting building with many unique exhibits. They had a scavenger game for the kids but that wasn't the primary reason we stayed so long. The exhibits and artifacts were so varied and interesting all of us enjoyed it (7 years old to 75)....

When my son said this museum was free, I didn't think it would be very big or interesting, boy was I wrong. What a great place to learn all about the area. There are things for kids to do, which we loved ! They have a room with a covered wagon, a tepee and general store for kids to play... More

I love the Pioneer's Museum and try to make it here a few times a year. It is located in a beautiful historic building and is full of historic artifacts, art and other changing exhibits. While the admission is free it is always a good idea to drop off a few dollars in the donation box! Don't be cheap. The... More

Nice place to visit for a couple of hours, first place we saw things relating to native Americans. Also found out interesting information on the early settlers of Colorado Springs. Well worth a look at for the beautiful building itself. Helpful staff.

Well worth the visit if you like antique things, or are into Colorado Springs history. I absolutely love the medical area upstairs. I could spend hours looking at all the medicine bottles and boxes. Some displays are always there, and others change pretty often. They also have an excellent gift shop with a great selection of books. If you're interested... More

The old fashioned elevator alone is worth a stop by. be sure to visit the well preserved courtroom and imagine the grand oration of turn of the last century attorneys pleading their case. Be sure to check out the Van Bruggle pottery collection.

The Pioneer Musuem is located in a historic building in downtown Colorado Springs. This musuem does a nice job of covering some of the early history of the Springs. There is a full size courthouse on the upper floor that has a classic "Gunsmoke" type feel. One of the interesting exhibits is on frontier medicine, with medical and dental instruments... More
