This free museum was an unexpected highlight of our day. Interesting collections of race cars, carriages, and Native American artifacts. The gentleman working there knows his stuff and we learned a lot about Colorado Springs. Worth an hour or more of your time.

Viewing the variety of cars that have competed in the Pikes Peak hill climb is amazing. The displays are very well thought out and the cars presented in such a way to provoke thoughts of them racing up the road.
