  • Where can you take your family on an outing for a few hours of enjoyment that costs nothing? The Colorado Springs Pioneer Museum in Colorado Springs, CO. The staff there is informative & pleasant and there is no shortage of history or displays to submerge yourself into for hours. Along your tour of this museum, are spots to stop & play dress-up for a bit, while snapping some fun photos. Additionally, there is a gift shop inside so you can take a piece of history home with you. This museum is appropriate & captivating for all ages. Wonderful way to spend an afternoon and it cost nothing except for the parking meter out front!
  • The exhibits are informative and very neat! It was amazing to see the old carriages they have upstairs by the courtrooms. Beautiful architecture and friendly, helpful staff. Lots of stairs though, I was not made aware of any handicapped entrance.
  • Such a cool place to find out a ton about Colorado history. The front desk clerks we're awesome and really helpful in navigating the museum. They even had a couple of old pressed pennies behind the desk since they had to get rid of that machine a while back. A great place to spend a FREE afternoon downtown.
  • The exhibits were very well done and presented lots of interesting history. The Helen Jackson house is fun to see. We greatly appreciated seeing the children's activities as we all have grandchildren who would love them. Beautiful building and friendly staff.
  • A great little gem in the middle of the city. It’s a free museum so it’s definitely worth stopping by. We happened to go into the court room when volunteers were there talking about the room. We spent about twenty minute or more with the ladies telling us all about the building and meaning of the art and style. Very knowledgeable . A few of the exhibits were boring but I liked the building itself. They have an old time elevator that is a must do.
