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

This is a quick stop off, if you want to see a lot of old cars and motorcycles, and of course the Big Boy. The price to get in is $9. You aren't going to see a lot of muscle cars, just old cars. Honestly we were just there to see the Big Boy for a friend, or I would... More

This is a nice museum with many cars, motorcycles, and bicycles on display. It was a great history lesson for my sons. Very nice collection of cars on hand. If you are a lover of cars, you will definitely want to visit this place!

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
