The peaks and forests surrounding Colorado’s Winter Park are full of history, and the Pioneer Village Museum is a great place for families to soak it all up. Located in nearby Hot Sulphur Springs, the Pioneer Village Museum gives visitors a taste of life in the late 1800’s. Situated in a historic school house and featuring everything from tools and household items to clothing and vintage ski gear, this family favorite is perfect for a little indoor adventure. In addition to the schoolhouse, which dates back to 1924, the museum also includes an original 1800’s courthouse, jail, a blacksmith shop and a ranger station. Though the museum focuses on Colorado’s pioneer days, it also offers an interesting exhibit on the geological development of the Rocky Mountain range from its birth to modern day. In addition, visitors can enjoy a variety of Native American artifacts and learn about the important roles women played in establishing these rustic settlements. Kids will get a thrill climbing aboard the old Winter Park Ski Train caboose and the early railroad snowplow.
