AOL Travel Editor’s Review

If you want a day to acclimate to the altitude and learn a bit about the city you’re going to visit, stop at the free Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum. The exhibits are enlightening (who knew dentistry in the 1800s was that terrifying?), but the building itself, a real gem, is worth a visit alone. It’s the rescued—once slated for demolition—1903 El Paso County Courthouse. You can still see the judge’s chambers and ornate accoutrements of its past life. The city’s history archives reside in the basement. The museum is in danger of closing because of lack of funds, but it remains open at least through 2010.
