The CSPM’s Response to COVID-19

To our supporters of the Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum,

On the heels of the City’s state of emergency declaration in regard to Coronavirus (COVID-19) on Monday, March 16, additional programs services and facilities provided and operated by the Colorado Springs Parks, Recreation & Cultural Services department will be suspended or closed until further notice. These expanded efforts are aligned with updated guidance from the CDC, Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, and El Paso County Health to protect residents in the Colorado Springs community from COVID-19 by slowing the spread of infection during the pandemic.

Beginning Tues., March 17, the Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum is closed to the public until further notice. This decision was not made lightly and is intended to provide greater social distancing to protect the public, our volunteers and our staff.

However, throughout the closure the CSPM staff will be available to offer research assistance remotely by phone at (719) 385-5990 or email

Until we can welcome you through our doors again, our staff will be working hard to develop a number of innovative web-based programs to continue our mission– building a lasting connection to the Pikes Peak region by preserving and sharing our cultural history. I hope you will take part in these digital programs and opportunities.

Thank you, as always, for your support of the Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum. Please stay safe and be healthy.
