Talk to some of the security guards. They can tell you things about the history and about previous displays you won't find anywhere else.

This museum has a plethora of history of Colorado Springs and ElPaso county. Beautiful old court house. Great displays. Make sure that you allow plenty of time,...there is a lot to see.

This is a big museum. There's an old working elevator. There are many things to see. Best of all it's FREE.

“Great insight into a once-rich city”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

The building itself is amazing - incredible level of detail, all lovingly restored. The court room on the second floor is amazing. My personal tastes run toward the pop-culture aspects of the historical exhibitions. Temporary exhibitions vary, but I've learned many interesting and obscure facts about Colorado Springs history.
