Spent a full morning here, it was a great place to learn about the area and the importance of TB to Colorado Springs - for decades people came here for "The Cure".

This is a real gem in downtown Colorado Springs. We are always looking for high quality, inexpensive, and educational activities for our young grandsons. Price: Free. Outstanding welcome from the staff and a beautiful building....Old district court.

We took the Boy Scouts on a scavenger hunt through the museum, so much fun. The museum had a prize for them when they completed. Some exhibits are only on display at certain times of the year or only for a short time. It is the old court house which is still set up. It is a great place to... More

The museum shows a rich history of the pioneers of colorado springs. The interesting part about it for an "out of towner" is how much history about the west is part of their history.

The cost was perfect. Although there was a bit of snow it was worth going here. Play room for my little man kept him busy while the Mrs perused the various quaint yet informative exhibits. The restored courtroom was impressive.

Housed in an old government building, this museum is a nice surprise. Not a highly visited spot, it is a great way to spend a couple of hours taking a look at the lives of Colorado pioneers.

I've lived in Colorado Springs 27 years and went to the Pioneers Museum today for the 2nd time (1st time was when I first moved here).
