A fun place to take the family, Ghost Town Wild West Museum is part historic attraction, part theme park. Made up of authentic 19th-century buildings relocated from other parts of Colorado, this “town” is sheltered from the elements in Old Colorado City. There’s a sheriff’s office, jail, saloon, general store, livery stable, blacksmith shop, rooming house, and assay office. Animated frontier characters tell stories of the Old West, while a shooting gallery, antique arcade machines, and nickelodeons provide additional entertainment. During the summer you can even pan for real gold. Allow about 2 hours.
