The building is gorgeous and the displays are well designed. The firefighter exhibit is particularly interesting. We enjoyed our 2 hour walk through the museum and capped it off with a relaxing lunch at the Tearoom.

Happened upon the Miramont Castle Museum - it has a great background story & is a self guided tour with an explanation sheet to guide you through. Very enjoyable.

When you find yourself in Manitou Springs you should visit the Miramont Castle. All the Staff was knowledgeable and very accommodating. As an admirer of structural designs, I find this Castle to be a beautiful structure. I highly recommend anyone to visit this intriguing Castle.
