What To Do Nearby When You Don’t Want To Travel Far:
For many of us, the pandemic has greatly impacted our ability and desire to travel. Since we are “stuck” in Colorado, I thought in this monthly column that I might suggest local places to visit which is within a few hours driving distance. I will start by recommending something very close to Castle Rock. The Forney Transportation Museum is a hidden jewel that most have not heard much about nor have they visited. I recently donated our family vintage car to this museum. For over 35 years, we have owned “Mr. FLyn”, which is a 1939 British Hillman Minx. This car appeared in the Academy Award
Winning movie, Hope and Glory. It was the family car
throughout the movie scenes. If you go visit the Forney
Museum, our beloved car is now on display with the other
amazing vintage cars, motorcycles, planes, trains, etc. As
a matter of fact, the museum sta  decided to display our
car as the very  rst exhibit in the museum at the entrance!
You will be pleasantly surprised when touring this one-
of-a-kind museum. It is located just south of the Denver
Coliseum where the National Western Stock Show is held
annually. The address is 4303 Brighton Blvd., Denver.
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.
