What an amazing place. If you love the history of Pro Rodeo this is the place to visit. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. We stayed for about an hour and half and that really wasn't long enough. We will be back.

Family from all over the US enjoyed the diversity in displays and sculptures. An unusual and quiet surprise in the midst of Colorado Springs. FAmily enjoyed the movie and receiving the free ornaments.

Interesting place. I have been to a few rodeos, but I learned a lot more by the end of my visit. I did not know anything about the history of rodeos prior to my visit. There was a film. The film should be captioned for the deaf and hearing impaired. That is the one thing I did not like. I... More

Unless you're a Hard Core Rodeo geek, you probably won't enjoy this museum at all. We didn't. Everything is about Rodeo's and nothing else. We thought there'd be more stuff about horses and other things related to rodeo's. For the price we paid to get into this, we just weren't happy about it and can't recommend it.

What a great tribute to the rodeo family. An amazing collection of pictures and memorabilia showing the history of rodeo and the people involved. Being in a rodeo family in the 50's & 60's, it brought back great memories of those times. A must place to visit for anyone interested in rodeo.

Great and informative museum. I actually went to school with a few of the inductees so that was a thrill to see their names. Covers all aspects of rodeo.

This museum is fun for the whole family. Watch a brief video on the rodeo lifestyle then wander through the who's who in rodeo...not only the cowboys and cowgirls but also the bulls and horses. Beautiful sculptures in the outdoor gardens too.

Interesting place to visit. Definitely not for kids, since most of the displays are in glass cases and, unless you're really into rodeo, are about folks you've never heard of. That said, I did learn things I never knew about Slim Pickens! Enjoyed his characters in many movies - never knew he was a rodeo clown!! The bronze statues and... More

This is a great museum - but wouldn't suggest bringing little children with you. They'll be bored. Not much hands-on activities but mostly looking at things behind glass.
