Avidly described as a place which takes you to a trip back in time, it is an interesting place with a nice little museum. It is a true preservation of Colorado’s western part, Ghost Town Museum is a fun and historic look back, at the kind of town that Colorado used to be in the 1800s and 1900s. There’s a boardwalk connecting quite a few shops which contain thousands of fascinating artefacts, the museum delights lots of folks, both old and young with amazing activities.

Ghost Town Museum Reviews & Ratings
Great little adventure. Took my 9 year old and she loved it. She was excited to pan for gold and even more excited to actually find some. Now she wants to learn more. I have great memories panning with my grandparents so I am happy to share the experience with her.
It was fun. It's a neat little stop if you're a tourist or really love antiques and ghosts. We took our girls, and they enjoyed it. Bring a roll of quarters though. We missed half the fun because we didn't know.
Please go here! This was one of our favorite stops on our trip to Colorado Springs. We were able to pan for gold, play a shooting game, explore the indoor area, and watch a short video. Really cool exhibits and the staff are amazingly helpful. You HAVE to add this to your agenda.
An interesting look at a western town in the mid to late 1800s. Static displays, with many period examples. Nothing "ghost" about it. Better for adults than children. The staff members were pleasant and accommodating. The panning for gold was a novelty, but nothing to write home about. All in all, just okay.
Nice experience! I did think it was a bit overpriced but my daughters really enjoyed the gold mine at the end. It would be nice to put some umbrellas over that since the sun hits that and makes it very hot.
