Pikes Peak Hill Climb Display
Since 1916, men and women of incredible courage have been racing to the clouds up to the summit of 14,115 foot Pikes Peak by car, truck and motorcycle! This exhibit includes photos from decades of the Race to the Clouds!
Featured Exhibit: Antique Fire Equipment
As a tribute to our firefighting heroes, the Miramont Castle Antique Fire Equipment Exhibit is an amazing display of what firefighters used to fight fires in the early 1900s. An antique hose cart, the oldest piece of equipment registered with the Colorado State Firefighters Association is amazing to see! Other fascinating authentic memorabilia and photographs of the Manitou Springs Volunteer Fire Department are on display and included with admission.
Little London Miniatures
Intricate and detailed representations of Victorian Colorado Springs continue to be on display on the first floor, newly refurbished in conjunction with the Fire Department Museum. Hand crafted and donated to Miramont by Doris Crawford, the workmanship is exquisite, giving rare insight into life in the late 1800’s when elegant Colorado Springs was known as “Little London.”
