i was taken by the exterior of the building and how it looked like it was from a picture in a history book. We looked at every exhibit and read every piece of documentation. The exhits offered variety, historical view points and there was even an exhibition of the recent wild fires which hit Colorado Springs just last which brought... More

A wonderful time and where can you go and not see everything it has to offer and not pay a dime. Many rooms to wander around and a great old building, right downtown.

This lovely old court building is rich in history and lovely. The museum was a quiet interlude during our trip. Its free and worth the stop.

Drove an hour and a half to this location and most of the shops and restaurants were closed or out of business. Would not recommend this as a stop if you're in Colorado.

We like museums and this is one of the nicest history museums we've ever been to. First of all is the building itself, it is housed in the old courthouse- marble columns, ornate woodwork and iron work, chandeliers. It is just so well taken care of and gleaming, not musty the way some history museums can be. So many fascinating... More

Great displays, we learned a lot about early pioneer and Indian history. The volunteers were very friendly, informative and patient. A retired teacher spent a lot of time with my daughter because she's very interested in Indian history. She let my daughter touch and closely observe precious artifacts. The grounds have beautiful flower gardens. The building is a old restored... More

Okay, I'm not a big history buff. We had a cool, damp day and wanted some indoor activities. So my wife wanted to see this museum. It's downtown and plenty of nearby parking. Now the experience. We spent 2 hours there and could have stayed longer. It contained a true treasure of Colorado Springs historical artifacts. The staff was very... More

I stumbled across this museum while I was exploring Colorado Springs on foot, and the minute I walked in the door I was so glad I took the time to go in. This is a marvelous museum with a lot of local history. I loved the courtroom and the pictures of historical Colorado Springs. It is FREE. You can't miss... More
