Mansion was a perfect rainy day activity. Interesting and informative about many parts of the area. Firefighters memorial was one of the best features and worth the entire tour!

Some friends and I went to this as a fun local activity that I'd heard hyped for years. While it was an interesting old house, it wasn't as cool as I'd been led to believe. The admission price was a tad high, and they didn't...More

Very interesting - MASSIVE house from 1895. There were many rooms with different exhibits, but I did not feel that there was enough background information offered.

there were so many things to look at. the tribute to firemen was excellent. Made it seems like an elitist club who blackballs. the furniture was exotic and the history of the owner as trial attorney at Nuremberg was extremely interesting.

I recommend the tea and tour if you are heading to Colorado Springs. Miramont Castle is a beautiful building in Manitou Springs. They have an authentic tea in the afternoon, but I recommend reservations. They also have a great gift shop.

There was way more museum than castle. There were some interesting exhibits - tribute to firemen, WWII memorabilia and the rooms were well decorated with period items. There was not the grandeur that I would have expected to apply the description "castle".

I do not think it would allow pets unless they are therapy or for guide animals.
