Visited during the 40 Years Of Cadillac display and was really impressed with all the beautiful cars presented. And the trains were a big hit with our three year old son - as was the Model T automobile you can sit in. The clerks at the counter were really nice, and the entire property is clean and very well cared... More

This place is just amazing. I can't add much more to the other reviews. However I can say that it is quiet, contemplative, and uncrowded. Makes you think about a time long gone.

We wanted to see the museum and since it was raining we went to kill some time. We were so happy there! Great assortment of cars, trains, and motorcycles to see. Something for everyone. Not expensive at all either. Mark, a volunteer, was amazing. He saw us and started talking to us about some of the cars and gave us... More

We needed something to kill a couple of hours as it was pouring so checked Trip Advisor. This place is lovely, looked after with great care and affection and the exhibits are beautiful. The cars for instance are so wonderfully renovated or in some cases in their original condition - unbelievably well preserved. Also carriages, motorcycles too. Great little museum.... More

Very nice museum! It had cars, motorcycles, trains and more. We spent over two hours and could have stayed even longer.

This is an auto museum on steroids! Great cars, beautifully presented, as well as motorbikes, pushbikes AND huge steam trains and carriages - all under one roof! Scattered throughout were also wax dummies dressed in original period clothing.

What a fun place to visit. If you're into all things transportation, this is a place you need to visit. From trains to antique cars, Forney is an absolute gem in Denver. Check it out!

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
