Located in the 1903 El Paso County Courthouse, the CSPM builds a lasting connection to the Pikes Peak region by preserving and sharing our cultural history. This mission is accomplished through innovative exhibits, educational outreach and programming and preservation of its object and archival collections. We strive to be a mirror of our community.
The Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum provides a space to share stories about our community through exhibits, programs and archival and artifact collection. Everyone has their own unique and important stories about the Pikes Peak region. We want to share yours. We believe everyone should see themselves in the Museum. We continue to strive towards this goal.
Without our volunteers, we would be history! Each year, the museum relies on over 100 volunteers from Customer Service, Cataloguing Assistants, Education Volunteers to Interns.
Did you know the CSPM is free? Thanks to the public and private partnership with the City of Colorado Springs, the CSPM welcomes everyone to explore our history.
“The CSPM is important to our community because it brings us together and makes sure that everybody feels represented in history.” — Violet, Junior Docent 2020
