Best Historical Attractions in Colorado

Colorado’s mountainous region is home to many several mines, museums, and other amazing sights. These are the things you can do in the middle of your tour when you need a break from riding around scenic places like Pikes Peak.

  • Western Museum of Mining & Industry
    • We’re sure you know a few things about the 19th-century gold rush. Now’s your chance to gain a first-hand look at the old mining operations, all the enormous machinery, and even do a little gold panning.
  • Wild West Ghost Town Museum
    • What better way to learn about American history than investigating a Ghost Town? This museum contains artifacts from several old ghost towns, including from the buildings, sidewalks, reconstructed general stores, real wagons, and stagecoaches.
  • Mollie Kathleen Gold Mine
    • Here’s where you can actually walk into a gold mine. Many of the old gold mines in America are off-limits to tourists, making this one a rare gem indeed.
  • ProRodeo Hall of Fame & Museum of the American Cowboy
    • Then you can check out the cowboy lifestyle of Colorado history at this fascinating museum. It’s packed with plenty of memorabilia, but you can also attend evening rodeo events and maybe even some of the retired rodeo horses.
