This museum is well worth the stop! Really great collection of antique automobiles (including Amelia Earhart's) and one of the largest locomotives you'll see! Plan to spend at least 90 minutes while you're here. They have a Model T you can sit in and a Big Boy locomotive you can climb up on.

This place will take you back to the day. Lots of interesting forms of transportation. Location is also nice set on the banks of the river. You can hang out or walk the river.

We've been to lots of transportation museums, and this rates as one of our top three. Wide, varied selection of bicycles, cars, motorcycles, trains, and vehicles we had never heard of. Very attractive with lots of chairs for sitting and waiting for those totally into the engines, etc. totally enjoyed it.

This museum contains lots of classic cars as well as a Big Boy locomotive and some other trains. If you like cars and trains, this is the place for you. There is also a collection of old motorcycles and bicycles. A great place to spend an hour or two!

This museum is very memorable & has much to offer. The size of the locomotive engines & to be able to stand right next to them was almost overwhelming & enough to make the visit a must see. But there's more -and something for everyone. We're car buffs & we enjoyed the Forney's collection very much but the trains, bicycles... More

I should start by saying that my work in the transportation business causes me to give this specialty museum high marks. I am so glad I happened upon the Forney Museum of Transportation listing in my AAA Guide. As is the case with some places of interest, the thought of how the collection came together in one place is way... More

This is a great place for those interested in old automobiles & trains. Some really great things on display, like the Big Boy (It is really big!) and some unusual cars. Not much to touch & feel, so younger children may not find it interesting. Lots of "looking".

This was a nice look at the past from the eyes on American transportation, the last 1800's bicyles to 1960's and 1970's cars. Plus a few trains also, it was very quiet and relaxing. nice way to spend a few hours

It was inexpensive and impressive. There were an unbelievable amount of cars, motorcycles, trains... Anything you can move around in. Not quite enough interactive items for my kids and ver few things you could go in or get inside. Better for adults, but still a good option.

Fun for my automotive enthusiast son & I, since it featured a wide array of fairly well preserved vehicles, both unique and rare. My son, stated that " I now appreciate the vintage cars more", I was very amazed as he had Poo-Pooed this sector of automotive history. Very pleased with the train collection and was very amazed by the... More
