    The Cheyenne Nuclear Bunker is another local Air Force related site. It is currently on standby, and is available for public tours.

    There is also a local tourist industry showing off the Gold Rush era: the Western Museum of Mining and Industry has a strong Gold Rush era slant, although that's not the entire focus.

    The Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum focuses on a large number of artifacts of the Colorado pioneers and native people.

    The World Figure Skating Hall of Fame focuses on ice skating, a definite stop for any figure skating fan.

    The Colorado Springs Fine Art Center features collections of Native American, Latin American, and Hispanic American art, as well as a broad collection of other American art pieces.
