  • Small but excellently curated museum dedicated to the Pike's Peak race, as well as some history of of Spencer Penrose. This is attached to the Broadmoor hotel, but free to enter. Amended as per reply.
  • What a wonderful surprise! I couldn't believe it was FREE!! We very much enjoyed seeing all the different carriages as well as several race cars that had made the Pikes Peak Hill Climb.
