A small museum perfect for bringing children to in order to show them how travel has evolved over the past century.

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.

Since I am an old car person I had to visit this museum. Oddly enough I have lived nearby for 40 years and yet I never saw or heard about this collection until recently. Well worth visiting!
