Police were looking for burglars in an early-morning break-in at the Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum.
Security workers at the downtown museum, 215 S. Tejon St., called police just after 12:30 a.m. to report the burglary.
Officers say someone apparently broke a window to make their way into the building.
"Inside the museum officers found that several windows were broken and that some of the interior furniture had been damaged,” police said in a news release.
The museum is located inside the former county courthouse, an imposing 1903 stone structure.
The goal of the museum is to portray “the history and culture of the Pikes Peak Region in exhibits emphasizing the unique character of this uncommon Front Range community,” the museum says on its website.
Police were still investigating the burglary Saturday morning.
