Great one day trip... especially if you have small children. Free admission. Upstairs halls cover Focus of the Family projects (for adults), Downstairs is a 'mock' town of Odessey, including Wooten's slide, Soda Pop Bar, and much, much more for the little ones.

This is a great place to visit when you want a morning or afternoon out. Perfect for all ages and best off all FREE. The staff was courteous and helpful and the bookstore featured quite an assortment of books as well as decor and gifts.

I was in the Colorado Springs area and had always heard of the Focus on the Family Campus. It was extraordinary! Great people and a wonderful place. The quality of the sale items were well worth the price. Thanks

Definitely wanted to see this place when I found out we were going to Colorado Springs. Gave it a 4 instead of a 5 because there wasn't much "person-to-person" interaction, it was all a series of videos, which, although I didn't mind, I didn't know...More

The first thing I will say about this attraction is if you are offended by Evangelical Christian Doctrine or believe in being PC then stay away. There are ample display telling the history of Focus. There are also numerous activities for the young children. They...More

I was surprised at the level that they have gone to for the kids to have a great time. Make sure they have watched a good amount of Adventured in Oddyssey before you go. It will make it a lot more meaningful. There is a...More

Kids loved the "Abendago" slide and soda shoppe. They also provided free scavenger hunts good for older kids. Disappointed that my oldest wasn't able to get a radio spot but we had lots of fun anyway!
