This place is huge! You name it, they probably have it. Great dioramas, informative displays, and well set out in specific interest areas. Well worth the admission, but be prepared to put quite a few steps on to see the whole show.

I took my 20 month old son here and he just LOVED the cars and the trains, especially the steam engine. If you have a child who loves cars, planes and trains, this is the place to be!

This Museum has major galleries showing the development of air, land, water and rail transportation in the West. The display of antique cars/planes/boats/trains/bicycles, etc is awesome.
