In the late 1800s, thousands of fortune-seekers made their way to Pikes Peak for the country’s last great gold rush. Now, more than a century later, you can make your own discoveries at Cripple Creek’s newest travel and informational resource center: the Cripple Creek Heritage Center.
Overlooking the town of Cripple Creek, the facility is a member of the Pikes Peak Country Attractions Association, and your complete source for Cripple Creek information. Stop here before entering the town for a birds-eye view of all there is to see and do in the heart of history!
This 11,600-square-foot Cripple Creek Visitors Center is designed in a style reminiscent of the town’s heyday; however, the technology is all 21st century. State-of-the-art doesn’t begin to describe what awaits you in the area’s newest Pikes Peak travel center: multiple hands-on exhibits combine interactive technology with tactile, audio and video techniques, for an opportunity to fully immerse yourself in the glory days of the World’s Greatest Gold Camp.
Other exhibits showcase area geology, flora and fauna, and regional recreation opportunities. Current exhibits include:
