Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum


CSPM is brimming with activity, excitement and energy. Our building, collection, exhibits and programs have generated a 97 percent increase in visitation since 2010. More than 90,000 visitors annually are connecting in compelling ways with the museum and all it has to offer, discovering the past, making sense of the present and shaping the region’s future. CSPM is sparking a new era in community pride and citizen engagement.


CSPM ignites curiosity and inspires discovery among residents and visitors, and dates back to 1896 when the Pioneers Association began collecting the artifacts and stories of the region’s original settlers. CSPM is the only institution dedicated to preserving and sharing the region’s history. It accomplishes its mission through interactive learning that excites all generations and creates community connections.


CSPM is always looking for docents and archival, front desk and administrative volunteers. In addition, CSPM needs new carpet in the museum store.
