Victor Lowell Thomas Museum on
Victor, Colorado - the City of Gold Mines - is located at nearly 10,000 elevation feet on the southwest side of Pikes Peak, in the Cripple Creek Victor Mining Distric.
. We are central to the Gold Belt National Scenic Byway and designated as a National Historic District. This well-preserved gold mining town is 45 minutes from Colorado Springs and is a unique setting of 1890's mine structures and turn-of-the-century buildings, unique shops and restaurants, as well as hiking trails. We have clean, cool mountain air and plenty of year-round sunshine.
What we do not have - stoplights, chain stores, traffic, or anything slightly resembling the rat race!
