Not Many Realize That Colorado Is Home To A Spooky Ghost Town Museum
If you are a longtime reader, you know that we here at Only in Colorado love ghost towns, and lucky for us, Colorado is chock-full of these historic gems! However, what you may not realize is that in addition to the towns themselves, Colorado is also home to a fun and informative ghost town museum:
Nestled away in Colorado Springs is the surprising Ghost Town Museum, which is "committed to making the Wild West accessible to families and visitors of the Pikes Peak region by offering an authentic western experience year-round at a great value."
Opened in 1954 in an effort to preserve Colorado’s Wild West heritage, the Ghost Town Museum is a family gem that Family Circle Magazine named as one of the 55 most special attractions of America!
Featuring authentic buildings that were once in use around the area...
...hands-on exhibits like gold panning and antique arcade machines...
...unique artifacts and antiques...
...and an extensive gift shop full of hard-to-find treasures, there is truly something for everyone to love at the Ghost Town Museum.
(Psst... you can even rent out of the old Ghost Town Museum, making it perfect for reunions, office parties, and more!)
The Ghost Town Museum is located at 400 S 21st St in Colorado Springs and is open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
