Miramont Castle Museum, Manitou Springs

3.8
#4 of 16 in Museums in El Paso County
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!

  • A great place to visit. Very interesting history. Fascinating rooms. Plan to sound a lot of time to take everything in.
  • Miramont castle is a very interesting place to visit while in manitou, with a rich history and knoledgable staff. In addition to this it has a nice (If not slightly small) gift shop with a wide variety of memorabilia, candy as well as so me toys for kids. Very worth taking the time to explore.
  • Lovely place for a tea! Great staff, environment, tea, and food! One of the best "teas" offered in the Pikes Peak area in my opinion.
  • Absolutely beautiful place to visit, with a very well trained staff. If you really want a treat, I recommend walking up the exterior stairs to the tea room, it is gorgeous inside and out.
  • Very beautiful, pretty clean, lots to see. Very expensive for a non-guided tour. Gift shop way over priced. Take your own pictures.
