A simply wonderful collection of about anything transportation related. "Trains, Planes and Automobiles". The biggest locomotive you' ever seen and a collection of vintage cars and motorcycles that is fantastic. Bicycles too. Do yourself a favor and visit this museum. Plan on spending at least couple of hours to really see it.

The Forney museum is one of the tourist places I visited when i moved to the region over 20 years ago and it still is a place I bring guests that visit today. Back then, it was in another location and its come a long way since those days. It has a great mix of trains, cars, motorcycles, bicycles, small... More

We've been here both with our children and without them and it's a great time either way! Of course without the children you have more time to read about each vehicle but the kids really enjoyed looking at all the different things and they especially liked being able to go in the trains. We definitely come here as often as... More

The largest and most comprehensive collection of cars and motorcycles I have ever seen in one location. In addition the largest steam locomotive I have ever seen called "the big one ". A museum not to be missed at a minimal cost.

It's an older museum, nothing fancy. But if you like old cars, and we mean old cars, rare cars, and trains, you'll love the Forney! And they have special exhibits, when we were there, they had Corvettes from the 60's about 30 of them, all sorts of colors, extra customization, etc.

A really great collection of older bicycles and old Indian motorcycles. A big boy locomotive, the largest in the world.

This is a museum with something for everyone, with a few small planes, a nice selection of historical automobiles and light trucks, an interesting locomotive and railroad car exhibit, and lots of motorcycles (but no Harley's). The exhibits are well done and informative, and you can easily expect to spend a couple of hours to take them all in. Take... More

This was very interesting but a hard place to find, it's far out from central Denver and looks like its off of the industrial estate - the sign isn't too big so it's a little hard to find. It has a lot of different vehicles, if you're really interested in cars/trains then this is the museum for you. It has... More
