About these ratings

After you've toured the historic streets of Old Colorado City, consider making a stop at the Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum. Housed in what was once the early 20th-century El Paso County Courthouse, this museum is filled with old photographs and artifacts that recount the city's story. Visitors can trace Colorado Springs' evolution from a mining town to a popular tourist destination.

It may be small, but this museum wins visitors over with its informative displays. "This is the most fun I have had at a museum in years," wrote one TripAdvisor user. "You can spend a couple of hours and enjoy every minute." However, some travelers note that the Pioneers Museum isn't the best place for young children, as there aren't many interactive exhibits or special kids' activities.

Sitting in the heart of Colorado Springs, the Pioneers Museum is open Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and admission is free. For more information, check out the museum website.
