Collections

We have been a collecting institution since 1896.  Since then, thanks to our generous donors the collections now comprises over 70,000 —ranging from artwork to paleontological specimens– and over 6,000 cubic feet of archival materials, including manuscript collections, photographs, maps, blueprints and ephemera. The collection is at the core of our mission to build a lasting connection to the Pikes Peak Region by preserving and sharing our cultural history.  

The preservation of the artifacts and archival materials in our care is our top priority, as a result only a small portion of our collection is on exhibit at any given time. However, you can explore the bulk of our collections through our online database  or through our interactive storytelling platform, The Story of Us: The Pikes Peak Region A-Z.

Do you have questions about the collection?
