We were pleasantly surprised with their vast collection. They rotate items and we visited during the winter and they had an exhibit of horse drawn sleighs. We really enjoyed our visit and will be sure to go back as we had to hurry through some of the exhibits just to get through before the museum closed.

I hadn't been to this museum since I was a child and was not disappointed. We were lucky enough to visit during a "hidden gems of the museum" collection display (or something like that - things they don't always have out). It's stunning to see all the "one of a kind" cars (many vehicles actually are the only one in... More

This museum has occupied two venues over the last 45 years (former venue is now the REI Denver Flagship Store. It has always been a fascinating and well maintained collection. The folks that run the museum are obviously dedicated. I have visited several times over the last 45 years, and have always found something that I didn't notice before.

You can see locomotives, train cars, trolleys, cars of all sorts, experimental vehicles, motorcycles, bicycles, and very old farm vehicles. I didn't realize how big steam engines were. You can go up into the cab of one. There are cars from the early 1900s when cars were starting to be built to about the 1970s. There was even an early... More

This is a hidden gem in Denver. It has a wonderful collection of transportation pieces and a few interactive exhibits. Our grandsons really loved the model trains, bicycles, and trains. Highly recommend this as a must for history of transportation.

Forney's may not look attractive on the outside when you arrive but the inside is amazing. If you are a car enthusiast, I HIGHLY recommend stopping in to see the collection. I loved Forney's and will definitely be back soon just to see all the cool cars again.

It's not the fullest of automotive/locomotive museums that I've seen, but the pieces they do have are awesome and the trains are what makes this museum stand out above most. A must see if your interested in history and not badly priced at $10 per adult.

The Forney is located in a large indoor facility in the close-in RINO district North of downtown Denver. The museum contains a large and outstanding collection of cars, trains, vintage bicycles, carriages and models. You can wander among the exhibits and glean history, context and anecdotes from the informative descriptions. Kids like the massive train engines and some of the... More

Visited the museum recently. Great exhibits of trains and cars. Good descriptions of each vehicle. Very comfortable place to walk around and plenty of free parking. Enjoyed by all ages.
