I spent the better part of 3.5 hours at the Forney Transportation Museum. It had been many years since I last visited. Good selection of antique and classic cars. Also a great selection of motorcycles, and the locomotives and railway cars are good. I was no overly impressed with the gift shop. The museum is located in a light industrial... More

Our family was in Denver and needed a place to visit in the morning hours that was inside. This museum was the perfect place. The types of transportation in this museum was amazing. We have been to lots of museums with cars and motorcycles, but this went beyond that. The wide variety of bicycles was wonderful! The history of the... More

If you have a interest in antique cars, motorcycles, and even railroads, you will really like the Forney Transportation Museum. Their collection of vehicles is very impressive, and quite a bit larger than expected. So, take a camera and be prepared to spend several hours enjoying a nostalgic look into the past. The people that contributed their vehicles for display... More

Loved the variety of cars. Especially the collection of old Chrysler cars! Saw some cars that I've never seen before!

Amazing display of restored historic modes of transportation PLUS wax figures from a closed Denver wax museum. Especially enjoyed seeing the unusual bicycle collection and learning that bicycles inspired the Wright brothers (wax figures) to build airplanes. Some clothing models are mannequins in period dress, but the historic wax figures, like Amelia Earhart sitting in her own car, are top... More

Beautifully restored and original rare cars. I am a car guy and have been to many collections but have never seen some of the makes they have here such as Kissels, Jewitts, plus they have 25 or so 50's Chrysler products. They also have the largest steam locomotive ever built and it is huge. For less than $10 bucks to... More

This museum has something for every history buff, and your children as well. They have all moves of transportation. I like everything thing about it. The teens get bored a little faster, but they enjoyed the 1902 Business train car (Polk Brothers I think). They liked the idea of executives having their own train car to travel in. The 1902...

The collection here is really quite eclectic My son and I loved it. A very rare locomotive was my favorite. He loved the very extensive collection of bicycles. The museum also features a very unusual collection of cars, mostly American, and motorcycles. We had a couple of a very interesting hours there. And it is not too expensive!

When we visited the Forney Museum we had no idea what to expect, but we were delighted to find some very distinct and impressive vehicles. The Big Boy was truly beyond belief in scope and size! I was particularly impressed that Amelia Earhart's "Yellow Peril" is housed there. We were also impressed by the curator's help and passion for her... More
