Most Impressive. Great Way to Spend a Morning or Afternoon.

This place is quite amazing. Upon entering, you encounter a Gold plated Delorian. Sadly there is no associated Michael J Fox statue. The front desk was most helpful and was very knowledgeable. The price is very reasonable. The museum is divided into several rooms based on time period. The collection of cars is quite amazing. I really like the first... More

My first time here was when it was Harrah's Automobile Museum. I've returned several times in the recent years. If you're looking for a history of autos, this is the pace for you.

The National Automobile Museum in Reno is really a must see place in town. If you're a local and haven't been there you should go spend the day there. The way the museum is set up is just beautiful. If you like history and cars you'll love this place. It's very easy to walk around and there's people inside who... More

From the moment that you entered, you were met and assisted in all of your needs. The nice part, was no pushing-crowding-and always someone to get help if needed, in explaining anything. Taking your time and not being rushed. Also a time to stop and have a cocktail or whatever. Do not miss this, one of a kind.

This is a great collection of rare motor vehicles. The place is set up well and the cost is good. If you like cars you should visit.

As a freelance writer I write about automobile museums for print magazines. I recently visited the NAM on assignment and was absolutely blown away by the fantastic galleries with some very notable automobiles. This would be in the top three auto museums that I have visited around the world. The staff are courteous and very proud of their museum, and... More

If you're even a little interested in the history of the Automobile, the price of admission is well spent! This museum has a huge selection of One-of-a-kind vehicles as well as more common cars to lol at and experience how competitive the Automobile industry has been in the last century as well as how quickly it evolved. From Horseless carriages... More
