  • What a wonderful place! The displays of carriages, cars, saddles and more were amazing. The layout of the museum was very open and easy to view the displays. And with the many informative plaques throughout, one can learn so many interesting facts and the history behind each item. Definitely worth a visit! The museum is free and they will validate your parking in Broadmoor garage for one and a half HR free!
  • This place was amazing, never seen anything like this before. I was happy with our tour guide she did great explained everything to us about the car's and buggy's and there history. Great experience for me and my husband.
  • It's not a very big museum, but they make good use of their space. The carriages especially were so cool!! Grownups and kids alike can enjoy this museum.
  • Great museum with lots of modern and old school transportation..Was able to park in Broadmoor parking garage for 6$ and museum is free. Loved the old carriages as well as the layout of the museum. If your into race cars and old way transportation, you will love this museum.
  • Great little museum. Would be nice if there was a bit more, but they've done a great job with the space. Also it's free! They do pack in a lot of information into it.
