Family Exploration Day



Penrose Heritage Museum, 11 Lake Cir, Colorado Springs, 80906

Event Description

Join us for a day of immersive fun and interactive activities! Penrose Heritage Museum’s rare and one-of-a-kind historic race cars and carriages will be on display, including Spencer Penrose’s 105-year-old Broadmoor Special race car, nicknamed “Yellow Devil.” You can hear Yellow Devil’s roaring engine started up by twice during the event at 11:00 a.m. and 1:00p.m., an occurrence that only happens a few times a year and is not typically available to the public.

Families can also take part in the Passport Program, exploring many activities to gather stamps. These include taking Polaroid photos in a historic 1890s carriage, going on a scavenger hunt, participating in a Build-Your-Own Lego car race, and more. Once you’ve gathered all the stamps, you can return your passport to be entered into a drawing for a chance to win admission/tickets to the following attractions:

- Family four-pack of tickets to the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb (June 23)
- Family four-pack of tickets to the Pikes Peak or Bust Rodeo (July 9)
- Family four-pack of tickets to Cheyenne Mountain Zoo
- Family four-pack of tickets for The Broadmoor Manitou & Pikes Peak Cog Railway
- Family four-pack of tickets to drive up Pikes Peak – America’s Mountain
- An annual family membership to Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center at Colorado College

Participants can also take the driver’s seat to allocate real money! Every visitor will have an opportunity to be a philanthropist for the day by casting a vote for one of four local organizations, granting them a share of a $10,000 El Pomar grant! The more votes each organization gets, the bigger their share of the $10,000.

We hope to see you here!
