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.

The staff is super friendly and informative...they make the museum! The building is beautiful and worth stopping in just to see. Don't miss a ride on the old fashioned cage elevator...feels like stepping back into time. The exhibits were interesting, but there isn't a whole lot there.

Completely appreciate the City having a free museum... but based on the title we expected it to be about the experience of traveling to Colorado Springs and the early days of its founding... and there was not much there on that topic. A beautiful building, friendly staff.

A great free stop in Colorado Springs. Spending about an hour and a half was well worth it. The museum is really well set up and shows the people in the area who struck it rich and then went on to build the springs as they know it now. Very modern exhibits despite the name of Pioneer Museum. Don't miss... More

Very interesting, learned many facts about the past. several exhibits showed how the miners lived when mining for silver and the downfall of silver. The miners went broke. Last visit to this museum several years ago.

Love the exhibits, great staff, beautiful building. Almost had our wedding here! The museum gives great insight into Colorado Springs History, and is in such a great location it's easy to get to downtown shops and restaurants.

This wee museum is definitely worth a visit. There is generally something for everyone. The repository of local history is amazing and the special exhibits are always worth seeing. Check their website for special events and make every effort to check them out.

The Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum is modest at best. There is a little history of area but not much else. If you have nothing better to do with your time, a brief visit is ok. The building in which the museum is housed is more interesting than the exhibits IMHO.

This museum offered much to see. We really enjoyed the section on the Native Americans to that region, it also includes a room for kids to play in, which looked amazing!
