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

Very nice selection of old vehicles on display. Old, large trains were a delight for kids. An hour of viewing pleasure. Very friendly staff. A truly enjoyable experience. Not crowded on a Friday afternoon.

The only disadvantage of this place is the location. Industrial part of town. Way off the street. Huge selection of early vehicles. As a Detroit native, I'm a car geek, especially muscle and classic cars. There weren't a lot of either, but this museum made up for that in other ways. Train cars of various sizes and functions on display.... More
