    This is located on Peterson Air Force Base. The visitors center is the old Colorado Aprings airport terminal. The aircraft and misses are worth seeing!  more »

    Very friendly staff!!! Very eager to offer information. Cool to look around, but far better are the stories offered by these volunteers. Make sure to request permission from either the website or a phone call 24 hours before your visit. Drive carefully throughout this base, the on-base police will be watching! Overall worth the trip. I will add pictures once I can grab them from the camera.

    Neat collection of historical Air Force equipment that is staffed with friendly and knowledgeable docents. I budgeted 2 hours here but could have easily spent twice that amount of time at the museum.

    Glynn was, by far, the best docent of any museum I have ever been to. Knowledgeable beyond words. Excellent tour.

    Excellent! Anyone interested in the history of the USAF Air and Space this is a must see. Free, Docent or self guided tours.

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.
