The 8,500-square-foot museum adjacent to the world-renowned Broadmoor Hotel houses the lifetime collection of Julie and Spencer Penrose. The Penroses were enthusiastic collectors of unique carriages, race cars, automobiles and other historically unique items.
The Penrose Heritage Museum is pleased to present The Pikes Peak Hill Climb Museum featuring 4,000 square feet of artifacts and memorabilia from the history of The Broadmoor’s Pikes Peak International Hill Climb. Included in the collection is the first motorized vehicle to climb the mountain and digitized video dating back to the first running in 1916 that tells the story of the race and the Pikes Peak Highway. The Pikes Peak International Hill Climb addition adds even more unique historical relics to the museum. The Heritage Museum adds to the rich history of Colorado Springs and is a museum that uniquely finds a way to educate its guests on the amazing history of the Hill Climb.
