Free museum in a beautiful old courthouse building provides a nice look at the history of Colorado Springs and surrounding areas. When I was there they were having a day of musical performances and also had some hands on activities for kids.The staff was very friendly and were situated throughout to engage visitors.

The museum has a variety of interesting displays with a lot of neat facts about Colorado Springs. Some of the displays have unique hands on learning, such as the interactive maps on the top floor. The building is beautiful and still has the original elevator, which is neat to ride in. Out side of the museum you can walk around... More

The security guard/ front desk man was soooo nice and informative. He really likes his job. They have a cute area for young children, and young kids will also LOVE elevator. The exhibits are nice and don't take long to get through. The woman working in the gift shop was super friendly, as well.

We enjoyed the museum and was a good learning experience about the area's history, past activities and people. There is a very nice play area for the young ones and staff where very friendly. Found parking easily. Allow about 2 hours to explore all the exhibitions. Overall very pleasant experience at no charge. We did make a small donation.

One of the best parts of this museum is the elevator that is over 100 years old. My 7-year-old and I went up and down for quite some time and nobody bothered us. It's so much fun to ride.

This museum is in an old courthouse and nestled in downtown. Has lots of rooms which shows different time periods of the county. Don't forget to ride the gated elevator!

A good taste of the local history, along with some Native American culture. This is also a must visit with any stop in Colorado Springs.

This is a great little museum. It is full of the history of Colorado Springs and the surrounding areas. It is free admission, and it takes less than two hours to see all of the exhibits. They even have a kids scavenger hunt throughout the museum, and the kids learned a lot while they were doing it. My kids loved... More
