The Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum is proud to announce the opening of its newest exhibit — The City of Sunshine. From its founding in 1871, local boosters advertised Colorado Springs as a premier health destination for the treatment of tuberculosis. Our region’s greatest asset-turned-industry was its stunning scenery, abundant sunshine and mild climate.

Historically, at least 1/3 of all visitors to Colorado came to in search of tuberculosis treatment. Once cured, many stayed on in the region to build families and businesses. Many of their contributions to this community are visible today. The City of Sunshine exhibit tells the story of how individuals, institutions, and treatments helped shape the Pikes Peak Region. This exciting, interactive exhibit opens on Saturday, January 16, 2016 and we hope to see you there!
