  • Came into the museum trying to casually learn about Pikes Peak and the Hill Climb. So lucky to have met Jeff (employee) who taught us so much more than we would have been able to glean from the exhibits ourselves. He may have also persuaded me to return for this year’s hill climb. He emphasized that the 100th running will be once-in-a-lifetime special. Thanks Jeff!!
  • Great place lot's to learn and look at and no changes to entry .and 90 minutes of free parking. God Bless Mr and Mrs Penrose
