    This museum is situated in the 1903 El Paso County Courthouse. An absolutely beautiful building. There are many thematic rooms covering the history of the region. Truly fascinating.  more »

    The tour guide at the front desk was amazing. Not only did he spend some extra time to get to know us but he also made sure that he went over the map of the museum letting us know what was where and answering any questions that we had. He showed that he really enjoyed doing his job well. The great place with a lot of history and information. Different information about people and things that are going on in Colorado Springs. There was even a working old fashioned elevator that was easy to operate with the directions posted and a play area set up for kids to learn about Native Americans and the Trail West, as well as a dress up room.

    We lived in CO for five years and have been to the museum multiple times. We now live in GA and came to visit and went again. We love the friendly staff and all the knowledge my girls get out of visiting. The displays are great and everything is well maintained.

    Great FREE activity. Lots of interesting exhibits from Colorado Springs history. One of the most interesting pieces is Helen Hunt's actual house. One of the workers told us all about how they moved Helen's house into the museum and preserved it exactly how she left it. Another great Free activity is going to see Helen Hunt falls about 20 minutes away. Beautiful hike for the whole family!

    Can't beat free! It's a great way to introduce yourself to Colorado Springs and a good stop when walking downtown. There's a variety of small exhibits related to local history and the staff is helpful and friendly.

    We attended a wedding and reception here and it was beautiful! The wedding was held in a courtroom, the reception in the main lobby area. I highly recommend the Pioneer Museum!

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.
