  • What an amazing find. Another piece in the history of Colorado Springs and Pike’s Peak. Whole family enjoyed it and discovered the generosity of the Penrose family towards the region.

  • You can always tell a purpose build museum with money behind it - this is one. Focus split 50/50 between a historic carriage collection and Pike's Peak cars / history. The carriages are actually...

  • Still the one and only Museum that has it all !! Old west artifacts like no other, carriages that are among the best in the world ! RACE CARS tributes to drivers. Historic automobile displays, narratives and motion videos with excellent viewing for all ages ! Highly recommend Parking is validated by a sticker on your receipt, pick one up in the museum when you walk in Use the right hand down ramp by the entrance and take elevator on west wall
  • This was a very neat little museum, we spend about an hour looking around and reading all the information that was on the signs. I can say I know if we had brought our kids with us we probably would have only spent about 15 mins in here. but since it was just me and my husband we really enjoyed it.
