Our mission is to preserve and restore the architectural integrity of Miramont Castle Museum and to provide educational experiences and resources on the history of Manitou Springs, its indigenous people and artifacts.
We invite you to join us and experience life as it would have been in Victorian times, from the Castle itself where you can view 30 rooms resplendent in authentic Victorian furnishings, to the Queen's Parlour Tea Room where you can feast on Victorian (and modern day) fare made fresh daily.
The Museum begins summer hours Friday May, 26th. Open 7 days a week from 9am to 5pm. The tearoom begins summer hours Monday May 29th from 11am to 3pm, also open 7 days a week.
