Very pricey for what you see. In a very bad part of Denver, not the part of town you want to show to tourists. When we went it was freezing inside, so dress warm if it's cool. If you have been to any similar car museums such as in LA don't waste your $$.

Forney's collection of old-time cars is amusing to vehicle novices like me. And it entertained my car-expert stepfather as well. The main room is the highlight, while those looking for a quicker excursion can probably skip the die-cast miniatures collection.

This is a great museum where you can see some very rare transportation examples. The museum is very easy to get around it and you can get close to the cars for some great photos. Admission is very reasonable.

To the right audience this would be a very good museum. There are all sorts of vehicles. .trains, bikes, motorcycles, and cars. I prefer cars from my era (50's and later). The majority were older with the exception of several Lincoln's, of which I had no interest. The fee was fair. The building was very will laid out and clean,... More

We decided to take a drive to see what the Forney Museum had to offer. We were glad we did. The collection of vintage railroad equipment is a sight to see. The crown jewel was the Big Boy locomotive. If you are into motorcycles, you must see their collection of vintage Indians. It is well worth the trip and the... More

An extensive collection of cars and other vehicles, supplemented with steam engines, and carriages (train and horse drawn), motor cycles and bicycles all housed in a huge warehouse where you can wander around at your leisure for as long as you like. If you are interested in transportation, the admission fee is a bargain. The entrance lobby has books and... More

What a fantastic collection of historic items. Loved the place. We will go back again. The railroad section has some unique equipment that I have only seen before in the Duluth MN museum. The classic cars bring back memories of when American cars ruled the road - with Big V-8 engines and rear wheel drive like cars are supposed to... More

Some very interesting automobiles and other transportation history items - some of their information cards are a bit inaccurate but still a very good experience overall. Definitely recommend.

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.
