I have done this twice and it is awesome. Great car museum if you like cars and the history of the Pike's Peak race.

We took our two grandsons primarily to visit the race car portion of the Museum. We were surprised and very impressed at the wide array of historical artifacts. What an amazing place. The Native American section upstairs was a truly unexpected delight. so worth the visit!

This was included in the Cheyenne Canyon Segway tour and well worth a visit. Penrose had an amazing collection of historical vehicles. Also enjoyed seeing the history of the Pikes Peak race.

Jason Campbell gave us a guided tour of the museum and he was a wealth of knowledge! His enthusiasm for the subject was apparent and allowed us to learn so much as we toured the museum! Highly recommend visiting if you are in Colorado Springs

Don't know why this place doesn't have better recognition. First - it's free, second, it's interesting history, locally and wider. A very nice collection of transportation history, some with historical significance. The exhibits, coupled with knowledgeable curators on site really make for an interesting and informative visit. Do not pass up the opportunity to spoend a couple hours here.
