  • We visited and had a tour with just ourselves. The guide was informative, enthusiastic and friendly. We loved the history and the house itself.

  • This was such an interesting tour, the house location was selected because of the direct line of sight to Pikes Peak. The entire house is furnished with beautiful pieces, some original some...

  • I tour a lot of historical homes and this was one of my favorites. My guide was super knowledgeable and friendly, and the house is beautiful with a lot of interesting architectural details. So many fun facts and really cool history in this house. The house is two floors and there are original objects throughout which each have a unique story. Bonus is that it also complemented the Pioneer's Museum really well. Seeing the house first really brought to life a lot of the names and places you can find in the Pioneer's museum. Plus if you are looking to explore downtown Co Springs, this place is in a great spot to start, with coffee, food, shops, within a few blocks. It was my first time exploring this part of the Springs and the McAllister House was the highlight. 10/10 highly recommend!!
  • Today June 25, 2022 My husband, stepdaughter and I visited the McAllister House Museum and we had a terrific experience. Our tour guide Patrick gave us lots of history facts and fun things that we just loved. The history of the building of the house, the family that inhabited the place and everything was fascinating. I truly recommend this gem of a place. Eunice Díaz
