Memorial Weekend 2010 marked the grand opening of a museum-within-a-museum, featuring antique and vintage fire department equipment from around the Pikes Peak region. Its hallmark is an antique hose cart, the oldest piece of fire apparatus registered with the Colorado State Firefighters Association, owned by the MSVFD since 1880. Fascinating authentic memorabilia and photographs of a bygone era surround it. Admission to the Fire Department Museum is included in admission to the Castle.
Self-guided tours are available during our regular hours. Guided tours for groups of 15 or more are available by advance reservation.
