A very nice collection of all things with wheels! From trains to bicycles and everything in between. Great organization and spotless, dust free presentation of these treasures. I loved that interspersed throughout the collection are mannequins dressed in clothes from the era of the vehichles. The engine, "Big Boy" and the collection of Indian motorcycles are each worth a visit... More

This is a gem that if you are a car person you have to see. Also if you enjoy bicycles the collection is incredible. It includes one of two bicycle known to exist in the world. Bicycles from the early 1800's. The cars went on forever. I am not a car guy but I still appreciated the varied and immense... More

While visiting Denver for a women's automotive conference we took a "field trip" to the museum and had a private dinner there. Awesome atmosphere. Very clean. Fun place for our event and it was a creative place to visit. Really enjoyed it.

I haven't been here in years (since they were in old building). The collection is outstanding and in beautiful shape! Well worth an afternoon!

Great museum with lots of variety of transportation vehicles, including train engines for the RR buffs. Newer building suits it well.

This place should be more publicized. I found it by accident in the AAA Colorado travel book. They have one of the few remaining "Big Boy" steam locomotives on full display, among others railroad cars. They also have an area where they rotate private car collections from month to month. We saw a beautiful collection of Cadillacs. They also have... More

If you're a fan of old cars, mostly pre-1940's era, you will love the Forney Transportation Museum. Lots of beautifully restored vintage vehicles, many of them rare or unique models that are hard to find these days. There are also 4 vintage railroad engines/cars, including a Union Pacific Big Boy that has to be one of the biggest steam engines... More

This is an eccentric little (well, medium-sized) museum located off the beaten path. It combines cars, trains, and motor- and bicycles, and throws a few horse-drawn vehicles into the mix. The plaques are informative, and the gift shop has many unique items at reasonable prices. A few of the exhibits are "interactive" in that you can climb up into them... More

We really like the combination of railroad equipment and automotive vehicles. Many have been lovingly restored, although some are in original condition since they were well preserved by their previous owners. if you're going to read some of the descriptions of the pieces of equipment, plan on 2 to 3 hours. Well worth the cost.

What an impressive collection! Cars, trains, bicycles, motorcycles, Victorian era clothes and toys. A *real* gem!
