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

Very nice museum. Lots of vintage cars. Huge amount of Indian motorcycles, plus several other manufacturers. A couple steam engines, passenger cars, 2 cabooses, and a crane. Also some horse drawn wagons, including 2 hearses (one black and the other white) wagons. Even a few aircraft are on display. I believe their top attraction is a car owned by Amelia... More

We visited the museum to fill the gap with some extra time while in Denver. Wow, how come I've never heard of this museum before. It was extremely informative, very interesting and just an all out cool place to visit. Our kids loved it and so did we!

There's a bit of everything here: autos, trains, bicycles, motorcycles, a couple of small planes, and a couple of oddball combos: a water- going car which actually made it into production, and an experimental combo car / boat / flying wing (which never made it off the ground). Some of the examples are pristine. The range will take anyone old... More

My husband and I visited the museum. He is more into cars than I am but I found it interesting. The place is a little out of the way but our Uber driver knew where he was going

There were a lot of impressive vehicles on display, and I appreciated the detailed write-ups about them. However, the signage plus the chain fencing, plus the crowded arrangement of the cards prevented nice photographs. Bags of ANY type are not permitted inside the museum, and they have free lockers, but not being able to carry tissues etc is very inconvenient.
