  • A vast and unique selection of transportation related machines, accessories, and hardware. The displays are organized and laid out beautifully, with plenty of educational information. The museum also provides information on iconic figure in transportation history, like Bessie Coleman. Those representing the museum are very friendly and eager to help. Our family had a great experience at one of the coolest places I have visited. Much thanks to the whole organization.
  • As a director of another auto museum in San Diego this is a must see hidden gem. Some of the rarest and finest of automobiles and real full size trains. the staff is extremely friendly and informative. Truly a hidden must see when visiting Denver and something for everyone in the family/group.
