Took a group of 10 kids ranging in age from 18 months to 9 years old. Everyone had fun and the bigger kids learned a lot. They got to wash clothes by hand, meet and watch a blacksmith, walk on stilts, make corn husk dolls and meet lots of people dressed in the period and ask questions. I suggest taking... More

We learned so much at this living history museum. I highly recommend this museum to all ages. The living history interpreters are all knowledgeable and provide great background on the history of the area.

As a nanny in Co Springs I have been taking children from ages 2-11 to Rock Ledge Ranch for the last 10 years. We always have a fantastic time visiting the animals, taking tours, playing in the creek, and of course eating candy sticks. The docents are all knowledgable and kind to children of all ages. We LOVE Rock Ledge... More

Don't miss this historic site on the way into Garden of the Gods. It is open during tourist season Wednesdays through Saturdays and for a lot of additional special events like a Pow Wow, Food Wine and Bluegrass Festival, Harvest Festival, and so forth. It is a lovely location and such an interesting place to learn about Colorado Springs history... More

Almost all of the interpreters were beyond friendly. They had a passion about them of the history of the area and their love of knowledge. It was So Great. Clean property, great view of Garden of the Gods.

This was a wonderful hike through local history. At $8 a head we found it very entertaining. The docents in the park were top notch. You will see 3 homes from the past in various degrees of wealth. You can easily see the entire home with very few restrictions. The blacksmith shop was fascinating. The docent was truly an artist.

Its mainly outdoors. There is a lot of walking so it is good exercise. We learned much about history and practical historical living so it was educational but very fun.

We enjoy living history museums and were very excited to see that there was one in Colorado Springs. We went there and did enjoy the different houses, barns, and Indian shelters, but we felt that most of the tour guides were awkward and it seemed like we needed to ask them to get information. But, as I said, the buildings... More

I loved the tour of the old historic house and carriage house and learning about the family that lived there. They loved the area so much that they donated the land to the state so that it could be enjoyed by generations to come.

After a very hot and crowded visit to Garden of the Gods, we just happened to see the sign for this place on the way out. There were only a few people there and we had no idea what to expect. We figured we'd walk around through some recreated ranch scenes and such, but that's about it. What we found... More
