Miramont Castle Museum, Manitou Springs

3.8
Initially built in 1895 as a residence for Father Jean Baptist Francolon, Miramont Castle Museum represents an architectural delight with styles ranging from Byzantine to Tudor. Today, tour the museum's 42 rooms decorated in Victorian-era fashion as well as lush, manicured gardens. Along the way, keep your eyes peeled for ghosts--many claim the attraction is haunted by apparitions. Just ask the staff about some of the house's unexplained incidents!

  • Awesome location, food and staff. We held a school event for a 100 people. All enjoyed the spectacular surrounding views and the museum. Small parking, but there ia shuttle to nearby parking.  more »
  • The place feels heavy I think related to it's long association with the deaths of TB patients it once housed. All the stuff on display isn't true to the building and looks like a little cheap museum w...  more »
  • If you like old Victorian homes and d├ęcor, you will love touring this place! It is a self guided tour and does not take very long to go through the house. We went through all of it in about an hour. T...  more »

  • Very friendly staff and beautiful decor. My favorite part was at the end where you could view paintings on the walls exclusively made by local talent. Also, there was an old piano in the last hallway. It was really a nice way to end the tour because someone that came in right before our group knew how to play really well.
  • I took my visiting sister to Miramont Castle today for High Tea and what a an awesome surprise. I have tried High Tea at several places in the Colorado Springs area and can honestly say this was by far the best. The presentation and quality of everything was fantastic as was the service. I am looking forward to taking my daughter and other visiting guests.
  • It was a very intriguing place to see. Loved the history there and seeing all the old pictures and antiques they had on display. I liked talking with the gift shop cashier, her story about her childhood living next to the castle was interesting. I would definitely visit again.
  • Not bad, I have been to alot of museums, trust me. Huge home. I wasn't impressed because the owners had a religious come threw out. Not my idea of opulence. Skip and hit the strip instead.
  • Don't plan on coming if you have children, the second my child made a noise we were asked to leave. Beautiful castle otherwise, I wish we could have seen it.
