El Pomar Carriage Museum Photos

The El Pomar Carriage Museum is located at the Broadmoor Hotel. This luxury resort was opened in 1918 by a mining millionaire Spencer Penrose to host those who came to Colorado to see Pike's Peak. To drive his guests around he started collecting old carriages, including those used by two U.S. Presidents & by other notables. Today this transport collection is a gem.
