Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum
The Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum (CSPM) is one of the oldest institutions of its kind in Colorado, dating back to 1896 when the El Paso County Pioneers Association began collecting the region’s original settlers’ artifacts and stories. More than 120 years later and housed in the beautifully restored 1903 El Paso County Courthouse, the CSPM is a free-admission museum with innovative exhibits, dynamic educational outreach and programming, and preservation of object and archival collection. We welcome more than 100,000 visitors of all ages to discover the past, make sense of the present and help share the region’s future.
The museum is fully accredited by the American Association of Museums and winner of local and national awards for excellence. Learn more about all the CSPM’s exhibits, programs, and events at cspm.org.
