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

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! Like others have mentioned this a great museum, not too big with quite a collection of cars, motorcycles and trains. They have signs which give some details for each of their vehicles but we felt...

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.
