Awesome place to go see anything to do with transportation. From trains, cars, bikes, motorcycles, scooters, baby buggies they have everything imaginable in the history of transportation. Very cool place to visit!

My husband and I went there for a Colorado Collectibles Event, but definitely want to go back to see everything in the museum! It's very spacious and there's lots of things to see. I'd love to take my 91-year-old father to see it!

While it was a bit of a challenge to find this place on bikes with all the construction, we were really impressed once we got there! The collection is bigger than we expected, and even though we're not huge vehicle enthusiasts, the museum made me want to be one. Lots of cars, of course (including the bubble car, which I've always wanted to see), but also an impressive array of all kinds of other things-on-wheels, even perambulators! We were eventually approached by a friendly volunteer, who gave us an extensive tour of the train cars. Jay's enthusiasm was infectious, and she's a great story teller. I came away from this museum inspired to become a train geek.

Found this place through TripAdvisor and since it was raining during our Denver visit, we checked it out. Glad that we did. Lots to see and read about. Fine collection!

This museum exceeded our expectations.....they have huge steam locomotives from the beginning of the 20th century, a great mix of antique cars including those from the 1960's, bicycles, motorcycles and interestingly a pair of roller skates that we used as children where you put your shoe in and tighten them on with a key! (You feel old when the cars you drove and skates you wore are in a museum!!)

Definitely worth including a trip here while in Denver.
