Penrose Heritage Museum Family Exploration Day

Join us for a FREE Family Exploration Day on Saturday, June 3 from 10am - 2pm at Penrose Heritage Museum!

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 race car, The Broadmoor Special, nicknamed the Yellow Devil. The Yellow Devil’s engine will run twice during the event, an occurrence that only happens a few times a year and is not typically open to the public. It will fire at 11am and 1pm - join us to hear the Yellow Devil’s engine roar!
