Museum lovers across the Pikes Peak region are slowly regaining access to their beloved artifacts, antiques, artwork and history.

Some museums are already up and running, while others are on hold waiting for the county’s approval.

Open for business: Miramont Castle, Rock Ledge Ranch, ProRodeo Hall of Fame, Western Museum of Mining and Industry, Ghost Town Museum, Manitou Cliff Dwellings.

Closed until further notice: Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum, Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center at Colorado College, Money Museum, Space Foundation Discovery Center, McAllister House Museum, World Figure Skating Museum & Hall of Fame.
