The Penrose family essayed an important part in the establishment and development of the Pikes Peak area, and the Penrose Heritage Museum honors this effort by the family. Spencer and Julie Penrose founded the Broadmoor hotel and resort, where the museum is located and was established in 1918.

The extraordinary collection of old carriages, autos, and motorbikes housed at the Penrose Heritage Museum is one of its distinguishing features. A stagecoach from 1886 and a touring automobile from 1912 are among the horse-drawn carriages on show. A collection of vintage motorcycles, including a 1917 Henderson and a 1929 Harley-Davidson, is also on display at the museum.

The museum's exhibits and artifacts highlight the natural beauty and cultural legacy of the Pikes Peak region while also presenting the region's story. The museum's Native American artifacts and early images of the region's growth provide a rare view into the region's history, and it is well worth a visit. This museum houses a number of rare and classic automobiles.
