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

If you love cars, and other forms of transportation, this is a must. This was a place where I went with my dad many times. It has changed location, but it's still a great place.

I am so glad I stumbled across this on TripAdvisor. My mom, 2 sons (ages 12 and 8), and I visited this museum and all loved it. I was astonished at the variety of all the vehicles they had in here. They were running a special Buick exhibit when we were there, which was fun to see. They have a... More

Doesn't look like much from the outside, but quite a variety of vehicles to see. Some of the cars (and wax figures with which they are displayed) could use a little bit of maintenance, but they had some really unique vehicles on display. You'll see everything from huge trains, to antique cars, to motorcycles, to bicycles - there's something for... More
