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

This is an interesting museum for history buffs. exhibits change frequently, so check website. It has a good history of city and Pike's Peak races.

If you are in the area at Christmas, the lights decorating the Pioneers Museum are an added bonus to this nice little museum. Just big enough to give a taste of history, but not big enough to bore the children to tears.

I was amazed by the quality of this free museum. With local area artifacts and history displayed, this is not what you would expect from a city owned museum. Enjoyl

I love history and love going to a museum which will give me a good feel of the local history. Plenty of information on the notable figures from the early days and covered too the history of black Americans who moved to this region after being freed from slavery. There was an excellent and moving display on the terrible bush... More

Great venue to spend a morning or afternoon. History of Colorado Springs all in one location, exhibits are excellent, building itself is worth going, courtroom upstairs from the late 1800's is a trip back in history.

What a beautiful place to house a Pioneer Museum. The renovated courthouse is a sight to see all it's own. There are many exhibits and the one about the fires in 2014 was very touching, brought tears to my eyes. In addition, there are several more exhibits that are under construction and will open within the next few months.I will... More
