Housed in an award winning art-deco facility, the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center at Colorado College has been the cultural center of the Pikes Peak region for nearly a century. With roots reaching back to the Broadmoor Art Academy, the Fine Arts Center has striven to promote the importance of fine art from its inception in 1936. The FAC's museum boasts a large permanent collection of regional, national, and international artists and hosts an array of traveling exhibitions. In addition to the museum, the Fine Arts Center also houses a Broadway-caliber theater with its own theater company as well as an established art school.

There are some nice presentations and the variety is good. Parking was awful and may have put a damper on the whole experience. I would like to go back, but it is not a priority while we are here. There are better museums within an...More

For a small space this "museum" offers big enjoyment. The first exhibit we saw on entering the center was a "hands-on" room. Every piece was for touching. A bunny. A snake. There are many pieces. This room is perfect for children. My son took me...More

Time well spent with beautiful exhibits. I was fortunate to visit during a time when a private collection of Rembrandt etchings were exhibited. Magnifying glasses were provided to see and appreciate the amazing detail used in the etching process from the smallest which were 2...More

I attended the "Art of Storytelling" and "Everyday Extraordinary" this past weekend. In a word: wonderful! The insights and artwork in both shows were awesome even staggering. There were only a few people around and for $ 12 I had a blast.

I hadn't been to the Fine Arts Center since I was a child. So visiting today brought back great memories, but the new experience made for amazing new memories! The complex is gorgeous, and the musical, Man of La Mancha, was amazing! So glad I...More

The Colorado Springs FAC is a very nice, smaller museum. One can see all of the exhibits in a few hours. The emphasis is on North American Indian art and artifacts, especially those with a Christian theme. The FAC also has a "tactile" museum, which...More
