    Lovely building with good collections of Latin art, Thought $12 fee was high given number of exhibits.  more »

    Too bad that the staging of works is so bad because the place is great and some really interesting paintings. A hundred engravings of Rembrand deserve a grouping by theme with some explanations on the work, the painter and the time. Unfortunately lighting is trivial in the extreme.

    Don't get me wrong, I love the fine arts center, and I've loved all the efforts and opportunities they make available for learning programs and students, but I was disheartened by the contempt from one of their older tour guides. At the time, the Fine Arts center had a Hispanic exhibition displaying Mexican farmers working in a field. The guide felt the need to express her unwanted political feelings, and jokingly explained how, " these Mexicans look illegal to me, and I would bet when the cops come, they'll start running because they don't have their green cards." It made everyone on the tour uncomfortable when we had come to appreciate art from different walks of life. It was uncalled for, and disrespectful to the artists intentions. I don't think someone who lacks the ability to think critically, or make sound judgement over what's appropriate to say out loud, should have the ability to speak about different artists or works of art.

    Nice place to visit! Close to Colorado College. Always interesting to wander through this place. They change out the art fairly often so there is always something new to see.

    This museum is nice a good size with a nice variety of art. Clean, spacious and made for a nice outing. The art collections were a good variety and covered several centuries in time. I would go back when they get some new collections.

    Incredible collection. Rembrandt etchings worth it alone. Southwestern art fantastic.

    My wife and I attended the best performance of Man of LA Mancha that we have ever seen! My wife is disabled, and in a manual wheelchair, the ushers and other staff at the theater were extremely thoughtful and very helpful to me and my wife.

Where to stay in Colorado Springs

To experience the scenic beauty surrounding Colorado Springs while on holiday, consider staying at a resort just outside the city, offering sweeping views of the mountains plus access to championship golf courses, tennis courts, and spa/fitness facilities. You can also discover Colorado's great outdoors by pitching a tent at one of the area's many campgrounds, or by renting a cozy cottage or mountain cabin.  If you prefer to stay near downtown, consider a moderately priced inn or motel, located a short walk from the city's finest shops and restaurants.
