Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum Best Of

IndyPick • Best Of 2011: Caretaker of Colorado Springs History

We're lucky here at the Indy to have the Pioneers Museum right across the street. It's a great building to look at, has lovely grounds to stroll and plenty of nice spots to take lunch. It's even better on the inside. Gorgeously built in 1903, the museum possesses an astounding 60,000-piece collection, ranging from early photos of the Springs, artifacts like rifles, Native American objects, medical equipment and much more. Feel free (literally) to browse an exquisite mural by local artist Eric Bransby, ride the metal cage elevator, and wander through the beautifully restored courtroom upstairs. Many of the exhibits there are interactive, but guests can go a step further, and register for the Museum Experience, a course in which they help design and build an exhibition. — Edie Adelstein
