  • This is so full of information! You better come ready to learn! It had a little bit of everything for the history of Manitou Springs. The highlights for me were the men who pushed peanuts up Pikes Peak with their noses and the pottery/art collection of Van Briggle. The person at the desk was distracted and not friendly. She barely greeted us. On the other side, I learned a lot about the town.
  • Not a very large museum, but has some really cool things and a lot of information.
  • This is the best lil' museum around these parts! And the ghost tours are an extra special treat! Such a special place to visit!
  • What a jewel this little museum is! The space is small but it is so well-curated that Manitou Springs’ every imaginable historical subject is covered.
  • We love Manitou Springs! The statues, a museum, history, lots of shops and good food!
