Our services include our museum tours and field trips, gift shop, educational programs, historic photos  for reprints and research, archives, and traveling photo exhibit.

The Pikes Peak Museum is a group of six historic buildings at Ute Pass History Park in Woodland Park, Colorado. Our museum houses displays and exhibits on the Ute Pass people and communities, the Pikes Peak Hill Climb, and the Colorado Midland Railway, and artifacts from the history of Ute Pass. We welcome guests and would be happy to give you a tour.

The UPHS Gift Shop offers a wide selection of books on Colorado and Western history as well as unique gifts. Reprints of historic photos from our large collection of images of Teller County and the Pikes Peak region are available for purchase.

Our traveling photo exhibit is a collection of framed images that are available to local businesses and other organizations for public display. Contact us if you would like to host this exhibit.
