  • This museum is a wonderful way to spend a hot afternoon in air conditioning. There is so much to see and learn. It's nicely curated for both adults and children. Great stop!

  • This is a very interesting tour of Colorado Springs history. Plus it’s free. Great way to spend an hour or so. I learned quite a bit about the area.

  • I didn't go to the museum... I volunteered for the "Pride" event. The last two days were awesome! Thebtalent is amazing, and the staff are incredibly amicable and fun! If you find the opportunity next year, it is worth a visit. Just go... be yourself... you have a place there!
  • We really enjoyed our time at the Pioneer Museum! This free museum has extremely friendly volunteers and, as others have mentioned, the building itself is really beautiful. We really enjoyed the black history room and the tuberculosis room. If you read everything in here, it will take you about an hour and a half to meander through.
  • We were visiting from out state and took the exit to eat. And happen to see this place and visited. You just have to pay for parking while you visit the museum. We witnessed a wedding at this place. And still were Able to complete the tour around the place in an hour and take plenty of pictures and everyone was so welcoming. We left some donations as well.
  • If this place is great for locals (been several times), imagine the impression on newcomers! I love history, I love Colorado history. Don't think twice and stop by... you won't regret it.
  • SO MUCH HISTORY HERE
