The courthouse building itself is a great piece of history and architecture, and the displays are relevant to the history of Colorado Springs from its beginnings to the current day. A must see for residents of Colorado Springs, and an easy visit for travelers looking to know more about the area. Friendly staff and lots of great places to eat... More

We were truly impressed with this valuable landmark in Colorado Springs. We have lived in the Springs for 16 yrs and have visited here twice before . The biggest and best addition to this museum is on the Waldo Canyon fire. We were emotionaly touched by the many displays on the fire's impact on our resident's lives.....it made us proud... More

Since this museum is free, it is worth stopping in for a quick visit. There are exhibits for children and adults. I like the exhibit on the Waldo Canyon fire.

The concierge at the Broadmoor recommended this museum for our family and we were so glad he did. First of all, it was Free! But even if admission were charged, it would be worth it. The exhibit on the Waldo Canyon fire was poignant and powerful. My husband used to frequent the Flying W, and to see the charred remnants... More

The Pioneer Museum is a great spot to learn about Colorado Springs. I wish they told more about the huge court room on the 3rd floor. They do some great temporary exhibits too telling the stories of the town. The Black Forest Exhibit was especially touching as it talked about the fire that devastated that community.

If you like the pioneers, you'll love this! Well maintained and can be done quickly or you can take your time. A lot to learn, and a lot to see. Worth a stop on your way past.

Learned a lot about Colorado Springs' history as well as some of the more current fire events. Interior details of the museum were beautiful also.

On our last day in Colorado Springs we visited this wonderful museum. We loved that it is housed in the old court house and the displays were done to fit the rooms. The displays are well done and very informative and easy to navigate. We particualry liked the Native American, health/medicine and Afro-American exhibits. It appeared to be very child... More
