Facility:Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum
Description:With a mission to collect, preserve, research, and interpret the history and culture of the Pikes Peak Region, the Museum features permanent exhibits on the history of the area and changing exhibits featuring subjects as diverse as Western art, antique quilts, Plains and Pueblo Indian culture, and space exploration. Popular culture exhibits have included such topics as juke boxes, motorcycles, and baseball memorabilia. A major attraction are the murals, by local artist Eric Bransby, which depict the story of the Pikes Peak Region from early human occupancy to the building of the Air Force Academy.

The Museum has over 40,000 objects in its collection including nationally significant collections of quilts, Van Briggle art pottery, plus the finest regional art collection in the state of Colorado. The Native American collection includes hundreds of items representative of the Ute, Cheyenne, and Arapaho cultures. A portion of author Helen Hunt Jackson's house is reconstructed in the Museum, furnished with her original possessions.

Fun. Family friendly. FREE. Perfect for studying Colorado History or the "taming" of the west. The volunteers are knowledgeable and eager to share their perspective on various Pike's Peak happenings, both past and present! The collection of Ute Pass Indian artifacts is a kid's favorite, and whatever current exhibit is there is sure to be of high quality and historic value. We like the local artists/photographers/craftsmen exhibits that are on display from local talent. My kids got a bit bored and were expecting more "hands-on" things to do, but overall, it's worth a trip. It's free for Pike's sake!
