In August, 2005, the Pikes Peak Historical Society opened its new 2600 square foot Museum in Florissant. The Museum offers visitors an entertaining and educational tour of the Pikes Peak region, from early explorers to Ute Indians and Mountain Men to the early pioneers, railroads, and gold rush. Unique rocks, minerals, and fossils from the Florissant Lineament provide one of the richest geological exhibits in the Pikes Peak region. The Museum Gift Shop features beadwork and other crafts from the Northern Ute Indians, in addition to books on Colorado history and handmade crafts and goods. This new historic Museum is located at 18033 Teller County Road #1, across from the Florissant Post Office.
The Pikes Peak Historical Society Museum is open year round and admission is free. During the summer, the Museum is open FRIDAY, SATURDAY AND MONDAY from 10am to 4pm AND SUNDAY 1AM TO 4PM. For WINTER HOURS AND more information, call (719) 748-8259.
