  • A very interesting museum they take donations so entry is basically free mini exhibits to see and we enjoyed our time there 
  • I live in Colorado Springs and enjoy taking my kids there for an hour or so; especially because it's donation based. The staff is friendly and nice. 
  • My wife and I initially planned to spend 30 minutes exploring the Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum but stayed almost two hours. This is one of the best FREE museums we have visited. I believe the muse...  more »

  • It's a small museum, but hey it is free. The museum is a relaxing place to read and just tour around. Speaking of tours, they give free tours for those of you interested in learning about history.
  • The pioneers museum is the old courthouse. It is free, easy to include in any walking tour of downtown, and includes historical exhibits of varying quality and diverse themes. The permanent exhibits include a couple old carriages, a collection of guns, a restored courtroom, and a progression of indian, surveying, mining, and ranching exhibits ending with a restored furnished house typical of early Colorado Springs. There is also a room dedicated to the black/African American experience of early Colorado Springs and a larger room dedicated to the tuberculosis facilities that featured prominently in the early history of COS. Temporary exhibits when I visited included a small room of local paintings and a larger room tracing historic businesses in the city, neither of which would warrant a visit in their own right. The building itself is historic and the grounds include a sculpture of a man who became famous for welcoming school children to his pumpkin farm every fall. It is rather whimsical and, of course, connects with a generation of school children who enjoyed leaving their classes one day in the fall and bringing home a small pumpkin.
  • This museum is very accommodating to large groups for school trips and let's certain groups see more than is shown to the general public. I really enjoyed my time here
  • The exhibits are a engaging mix between interactive and informative, great for kids and adults. The displays efficiently use mixed media to portray the history of the area. The fire exhibit is especially moving.
  • We stopped in here during the Whatif Festival. Lots of great local history!
