Miramont Castle Museum was constructed in 1895 as a private home, but throughout the 1900s was used in many other capacities. Today Miramont is dedicated to preserving the heritage of Manitou Springs and the Pikes Peak region. Miramont has four floors (each of which opens onto ground level) with just over 14,000 square feet. It is constructed of now-rare hand-quarried greenstone, and features 30 rooms, nine styles of architecture, five fireplaces, and a lovely Victorian garden. Available year-round, guests can enjoy High Tea, Light Victorian Tea or lunch. Reservations are required for the teas and strongly recommended for lunch. Walk-ins are welcome if space is available. Call 719.884.4109 for reservations, hours and availability. Summer hours are daily 11 am - 3 pm with winter hours running Tue-Sun from 11 am - 3 pm.
