Rome Wasn't Built in a Day
And neither was the Museum’s new website! But after months of hard work, we are pleased to announce its launch. If you haven’t had the opportunity to explore it yet, we ask you to take a moment and dive right in! We hope that you’ll be as excited as we are about the new look and features as well the improvements we’ve made to the staples from the previous website.
Discovery Through Digital Content
Our effort to create new online content has resulted in the following videos that we hope you find informative as well as entertaining:
- A Conversation with Caitlin Sharpe, CSPM Registrar
- Colorado Women Led the Way: The Battle for Women’s Suffrage, presented by Leah Davis Witherow, CSPM Curator of History
- Cultural Connections: Horsing Around Rock Ledge Ranch with Andy Morris, Ranch Manager and Alyssa Cowen, Lead Interpreter
- Children’s History Hour: Collecting Counts! Hosted by the CSPM’s Program Coordinator, Meg Poole, Education Assistant Makaela Worden, and Registrar Caitlin Sharpe

Digital Initiatives: New and Old
Although COVID19, and the resulting the “Stay at Home” order, inspired the staff to create new digital content, the CSPM has a long history of reaching beyond its walls. Over the years, we have developed online content for teachers and students, as well as provided collections access to researchers near and far. One of our most significant accomplishments is the Story of Us interactive exhibit. It utilizes a unique interactive mapping platform that enables the visitor to explore stories of the Pikes Peak Region from a laptop, desktop, or cell phone — anywhere, anytime!
