This is a treasure trove of trains, automobiles, motorbikes, and bicycles. Fun for the whole family -- be sure bring multiple generations because there is something for everyone from grandparents to the youngest toddlers. Affordable and worthwhile!

Four of us decided to pop in to the museum and we were surprised by the amount of vehicles on display. It was opening day for a new limousine display. The museum's president was proudly dusting some of them and was a source of great insight. Amelia Earhart's hot rod and a wonderful display of match box cars were the... More

If you are a motorcycle fanatic you will love the museum. Train enthusiasts will also enjoy viewing one of the few surviving Big Boys. Not a good place for children. Definitely for the informed adult.

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.

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.
