The Forney Museum had a lot of great displays. There were antique cars, trains, motorcycles, bycycles, etc. It was fascinating to see all the old cars and to read a little bit about each one. There was a vintage camper also. The lobby had a gift shop with old car and train magazines on sale for $1 so if you... More

I know of no other place that has so many different collections. They have an old old Chevron Truck that was going to be demolished and has found refuge here. They have such a unique treasure chest of cars, boats, trucks, etc. So cool! I hope it gets the support it needs so we don't lose this treasure chest!

This smaller museum is a gem. While it is a little hard to find, it is well worth it if you enjoy cars and trains. The museum is entirely inside so weather is never a problem. There are displays of antique cars, trains, bicycles and motorcycles--all of which are very interesting. The displays are well positioned and a visitor can... More

If you love cars, and other forms of transportation, this is a must. This was a place where I went with my dad many times. It has changed location, but it's still a great place.

I am so glad I stumbled across this on TripAdvisor. My mom, 2 sons (ages 12 and 8), and I visited this museum and all loved it. I was astonished at the variety of all the vehicles they had in here. They were running a special Buick exhibit when we were there, which was fun to see. They have a... More

Doesn't look like much from the outside, but quite a variety of vehicles to see. Some of the cars (and wax figures with which they are displayed) could use a little bit of maintenance, but they had some really unique vehicles on display. You'll see everything from huge trains, to antique cars, to motorcycles, to bicycles - there's something for... More

While visiting Denver my host took me to Forney Transportation Museum. I really did not know what to expect so I was in for a very pleasant surprise. There were trains - including the HUGE Big Boy engine- over 132 feel long! There was also a wonderful collection of cars, motorcycles, and bikes. Some were rare - all were interesting.... More

Enjoyed the museum, but really enjoyed finding another well-preserved Big-Boy Locomotive. Also included a car owned by Amelia Earhart.

Moved to new building, updated, some really cool stuff, worth an hour or two of your time if you are downtown looking for something to do. Not the Denver Museum of Nature and Science quality, but still fun.

We requested a taxi from our hotel to visit the Forney Transportation Museum. To our surprise, the taxi driver had never heard of it and had no idea where it was! Thankfully, we had printed out the museum details so we were able to give him the address. Yet, he still made a few phone calls to confirm the location... More
