The Forney Museum of Transportation is a one-of-a-kind collection of over 600 artifacts relating to historical transportation. It began 60 years ago with a single 1921 Kissel but soon expanded to include vehicles of all kinds.
Now there are buggies, motorcycles, steam locomotives, aircraft, carriages, rail equipment, fire apparatus, public transportation, sleighs, bicycles, and vintage apparel. The museum maintains a collection of approximately 500 exhibits.
The museum has a slogan, Anything on Wheels and Forney locomotive; locomotive designer Matthias N. Forney is a second cousin to the museum founder, J.D. Forney. There are also bikes and motorcycles from all eras and even a helicopter and small plane!
The displays are good and, the docents and volunteers are knowledgeable and so enthusiastic about the museum and what they do. The employees are friendly and willing to answer questions.
