  • This was by far the coolest car museum that I have ever been to. Had an amazing variety of not just cars. But planes, trains, and bikes too! This is without a doubt one of Denver’s hidden gems. You could spend anywhere from an hour to four hours. I was there for about 2. The $10-$12 admission is well worth it. Highly recommended!
  • This wonderful museum offers the unique opportunity to see on if the remaining 'Big Boy' locomotives that ran heavy freight loads between Cheyenne and Ogden. This, along with an amazing collection of Studebaker automobiles make this museum a unique, must-see visit for any rail or car buff. Highly recommended!!!
