Right downtown in Colorado Springs. Lots of things to see. Colorado History here, with exhibits on the main floor that change from time to time. My favorite is on the second floor..a reconstruction of an Apothecary Shoppe and dentist office. You can even rent the old courthouse if you want to get married while you're in town!

This museum is a short walk from the Mining Exchange hotel. The exterior of this building is absolutely beautiful. The inside has amazing design and artifacts. We spent about 3 hours roaming the halls and feel that when we go back we will still learn and see new things. We highly recommend this museum!

So beautiful! We take the Cub and Boy Scouts every year. They really enjoy it! Even the little ones love looking at the old toys and Indian artifacts.

It's free! Great for families & adults. Hands on exhibits, art, covered wagons, loved the Colorado history, since I don't live in Czo.

Awesome museum for kids and adults. Kids loved doing the scavenger hunt, great way to get them interested and keep their attention. Loved the hands on exhibits with the volunteers teaching about different things. Kids area was great, they loved playing on the wagon and train. Of course the best part is it's free!

My husband and I own Van Briggle pottery and we wanted to tour this museum because they have a room devoted to Van Briggle. Little did we know that the whole building and all of the other exhibits were going to be a treat. Don't miss this musuem especially the overall building and the courtroom.

Cool collections, some of which change out over time. Cases with guns from many eras, an area to dress in ye olde clothing, an old house replica, pottery, an old elevator you can ride in, and a preserved courtroom (as the museum was previously a courthouse). Check out their calendar for events for kids, etc. The museum is free too,... More

Great place to visit with the family. All 6 of our kids very much enjoy visiting this place. What's even better; it's free. I would recommend to anyone interested in Colorado Springs history.

I'm a native to C Springs and I still love to visit this place. Lots to look at and learn, plus it's free and you can spend hours there! Love it!
