I have been to a few transportation museums...while this is no Greenfield Village it does have some interesting items in its collection. If you have any kids interested in trains, cars or motorcycles this is probably worth the visit and can be completed in an hour or less...

We wanted to visit this museum for quite some time when and then it moved to its new location and we finally made it there!

Great display of transportation. Also they have different special displays of older cars that are on show. Admission is reasonable and a great place to spend a few hours!

Forget everything you have seen about transportation in bicycles, motorcycles, cars, buses, wagons, trains. It is a must-see museum. Don't miss it if you are in Denver.

This off the beaten track museum was a very pleasant surprise. We thoroughly enjoyed seeing the many, many antique vehicles from motorcycles to cars to fire trucks to train cars. We had a great time.

Very pricey for what you see. In a very bad part of Denver, not the part of town you want to show to tourists. When we went it was freezing inside, so dress warm if it's cool. If you have been to any similar car museums such as in LA don't waste your $$.

Forney's collection of old-time cars is amusing to vehicle novices like me. And it entertained my car-expert stepfather as well. The main room is the highlight, while those looking for a quicker excursion can probably skip the die-cast miniatures collection.
