Located downtown, near the old Denver Coliseum, the Forney Transportation Museum houses a very nice collection of American made cars from the 1950's, 60's and 70's. They also have a nice train collection, including 4-8-8-4 Big Boy. The volunteers that run this museum are very nice and helpful, but have very little tolerance for stupid people.

After our visit to Vail, we stayed one day in Denver before catching the plane back to DC. We wanted to pass the time until our room was ready and we found the Forney Museum of Transportation. It turned out that it was way better than we expected! It was packed with amazingly restored cars and trains from the first... More

If you live in Denver every one of your kids will have a field trip here. Go at least once and get to know the history of the cars and trains there!

Great museum with trains, cars, motor bikes. Bikes, hot wheels and anything that rolls. I loved the old refurbished cars of the 50's and 60's. Something for all ages.

We ended up visiting this museum because my brother is really into cars. However, it ended up being fun for the whole family. Seeing all of the old cars, trains, motorcycles, and bikes was really interesting. There is a small fee of $9.75 to get in, but it was worth our money.

I loved going here because of the size of the displays and the history that they show off! My son loves coming here too since he can see things close up. It is a little dark in some areas but I suppose that might keep them on the green side?

We rode a bus out toward the Museum and it took us awhile to get there. The museuam didn't seem to be in a real nice part of town but once we were inside, we had a lot of fun! There were a lot of Ford Mustangs and motorcycles to look at and was well worth the small fee!

If you grew up in Denver you likely visited the Forney Museum as a child. If you are over 30 you likely visited when it was located in the Denver REI building off 15th and Platte. Back then it was a super creepy, yet a really neat place. Full of old cars, and trains decorated with ill dressed mannequins. The... More

This collection is HUGE and the exhibits are in wonderful condition! The eras of the various cars, trailers, bicycles, train cars, etc are enhanced by mannequins in period clothing. Something there for every age, a day well-spent for adults and children alike.

We live near Denver, so have been to the Forney many times! In fact, we have a car there in a temporary Mustang exhibit right now. We recently visited again with a group of friends. Each time we go, I find something different to enjoy. This time, we happened upon one of the train cars that had a tour guide.... More
