The Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum builds a lasting connection to the Pikes Peak region by preserving and sharing our cultural history. As a free museum, the CSPM welcomes all visitors to connect with stories of the past through innovative exhibits, dynamic educational programming and preservation of its object and archival collection.
Colorado Springs is constantly changing with a fast-growing and dynamic population. With new people joining our community, it can be difficult for new residents to feel connected with their community and be aware of its unique history. The CSPM helps create a sense of place by sharing stories that mirror our community inside the Museum and beyond our walls.
Volunteers help the CSPM in everything we do. We are always recruiting individuals passionate about history for school programs, front desk greeters, museum store and youth and family programs.
The CSPM is housed in the 1903 El Paso County Courthouse– the largest artifact in its collection.
“I support the Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum to preserve our community’s history. Colorado Springs has a unique history, and I believe it is important to tell. How do we know where we are going if we do not know where we come from.” — Barbara Bates, Supporter of the CSPM
