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.

Great to see all the old modes of transport, Shows the progression, from steam to newer forms of transport, up to the mid sixties.

This is a very interesting museum, with auto, airplane, trains, boats, motorcycles and more. Taking visitors here is a must and plan to spend a good 3 hours..well worth the small price of admission.

We have a membership as our kids love to come and look around. They find something new to see every time we are here. It's a great way to spend the afternoon

Not our first visit, but we always find something new. Love all the artifacts on display, just wish we could touch and explore more (although I understand why we can't!)
