“Delightful surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

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.

“So cool!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2014

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, which is awesome!

Side note, I went here on an art class field trip and they were so nice as to let us see the storage rooms and ring the bell in the tower!! The security guard decided to do that all of a sudden, nothing planned. That was really a treat.

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.

“Great for a Field Trip for the Class”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2013

We study Colorado History in 4th grade, and this is a great field trip to go along with it. The students love doing the scavengar hunt and learning all about Colorado from the paleo Indian time all the way to the Waldo Canyon Fire. It's such a great learning experience.
