Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum is truly a marvel of history and culture, nestled in the heart of the city of Colorado Springs. The museum is housed in a stunningly restored 1903 courthouse, with towering columns and an impressive dome that will make you feel like you have stepped back in time. The architecture alone is worth the trip!

The museum is consecrated to preserving the history and culture of the Pikes Peak region, from the early Native American inhabitants to the pioneers who settled the area to the present day.

One of the museum's most unique exhibits is the 'Made in Colorado'' display, which showcases products that were manufactured in the state over the years. From the classic Pikes Peak or Bust Rodeo posters to the world-famous Leisure Suit Larry video game series, there's something for everyone in this exhibit.

The museum also has an impressive collection of artifacts related to the region's mining history, including equipment used by miners and photos of the dangerous work they did. Another exhibit tells the stories of local black residents who faced discrimination and segregation but also fought for their rights and made lasting contributions to the city.
