Penrose Heritage Museum

Central, Colorado, Racing

Penrose Heritage Museum exhibits 30 carriages, personal artifacts of Spencer and Julie Penrose, and 15 race cars that competed in the infamous Race to the Clouds, one of the oldest motorsport events in the U.S., second only to the Indianapolis 500.

The Penrose legacy includes the construction of the Pikes Peak Auto Highway (1916), Pikes Peak International Hill Climb (1916), The Broadmoor (1918), Cheyenne Mountain Zoo (1926), Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center at Colorado College (1936), Will Rogers Shrine of the Sun (1937) and Pikes Peak or Bust Rodeo (1937) – just to name a few of Colorado Springs’ most iconic attractions!
