Experience the wonder of an authentic 1890s castle at the Miramont Castle Museum, a Manitou Springs gem tucked away in the hillside above town. Just a short distance from the Manitou Incline and the Iron Springs Chateau, Miramont Castle invites excited guests from all over to get a taste of Victorian life through its beautiful collection of artifacts. And the architecture? Absolutely stunning.
The castle is over 14,000 feet of unique design, including eight-sided and sixteen-sided rooms, a solarium, a grand staircase and a variety of details both big and small that capture the eye. In the summer, enjoy the castle’s well-tended garden, filled with flowers and plants and offering ample opportunities to capture photos. All this, plus its arched doors, rich wood trim, antique décor and other features combine to create a delightful surprise conveniently located above Manitou Springs.
Your ticket to Miramont Castle won’t just get you a look inside this historic architectural marvel, you’ll also be treated to fascinating exhibits that highlight snapshots of history here and abroad. Check out vintage fire equipment, explore war memorabilia, examine mid-1800s maps and even look at photos from the twelfth Nuremberg trial, which was presided over by Colorado Springs’ John C. Young. It’s history within history!
When you’re all finished, you can relax with a spot of tea in the Queen’s Parlour Tearoom, a lushly appointed Victorian tea room that offers delicious teas, homemade scones, fresh cream and heartier fare. Reservations are required for High Tea and Light Tea, so be sure to book your tea 24 hours before you visit. Miramont Castle offers one of the few Victorian tearooms in Colorado Springs – and the easiest to visit (no museum admission required, but you can get discounted admission with your tea).
Miramont Castle also has some amazing events going on all year long. Want some spooky fun? Sign up for one of their Friday the 13th Midnight Tours or Emma Crawford’s Victorian Wake. Looking for a fancy way to celebrate Mother’s Day? Try the High Tea in the Queen’s Parlour Tearoom. There’s also an extremely festive and elegant Christmas celebration each year and even a Valentine’s Day High Tea. All of these events are incredibly popular, so it’s important to get your spot right away. We suggest liking them on Facebook: facebook.com/miramontcastlemuseum so you’re always in the know.
Whether attending an event, stopping in for tea or taking out-of-town guests on a tour, Miramont Castle is a can’t miss experience in the Pikes Peak region.
