“This guy is a genius”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2012

His creative powers exceed some of the sculptural greats. The road changes kind of messed with the zoo. I went with a retired farmer who was constantly amazed by what he did with farm machinery and tools.

“Fun with metal”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2012

This is easy to find, directly east on Harmony from the Harmony Exit off I25 in Ft Collins. The white building with yellow trim is hard to miss. But figuring out where to go once we got there proved to be more difficult. It has been a few years since I had been there, but when I arrived, there was no one in any of the buildings so we took our own tour. If there was someone to guide us, it may have been more interesting. It was fun to see how all the different scrap pieces were composed to make someone fun. Great for children.

“A Unique Place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2012

I am sure there is nothing quite like it anywhere. A great safe place to take children for an outing full of discoveries. The machine parts metal sculptures are unusual, creative and amuzing. Surprisingly quiet atmosphere near I-25.

“The BEST place to vist in Fort Collins!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2012 via mobile

Great place because of the great owners. They created a giant Dino sculpture that was next to the highway and was a landmark for many. Recently a driver crashed into it and because it used rare parts it is impossible to replace.
