We luv this place. Its absolutely amazing. Great part of history and jewel for area. The cars are beautiful, fantastic collection. Staff are very helpful and pleasant. We especially luv taking our kids there on Halloween. The details and exhibits are amazing here. And they also have beautiful paintings too. I luv the copper rolls Royce.

We did the tour with the guide and well worth it. Seeing all of the history in these vehicles and failed production cars etc great tour and be a shame to see this museum ever close. Run by volunteers so donate generously. Thanks for a great day

This is a great collection of vintage cars. I can spend hours reading about the history of automobiles. Talk to some of the other visitors to enhance your experience. There are always people who know a little more than is written on those signs. There is a self guided tape you can use too.

This was something we decided to do as a spur of the moment thing because we like the car museum in Vegas. This one is awesome. Great collection of one of a kind cars!

This Automobile Museum is laid out in the most unique way with sidewalks and trees as if you are outside when you are actually indoors. Elvis's car and ex President John F Kennedy's cars are so impressive you can actually touch them. You can actually see the indent from Caroline's car seat in the back seat of the convertible. The...

Excellent tour guide! Learned so much and saw dozens of cars I had never seen before. My favorite was the 1938 Phantom Corsair.

This museum houses 220 autos from the original1400 auto collection of Harrah plus other donations and autos on loan. Four galleries of auto ascending from the late 1800's to the late 1900's. Well designed and maintained and well worth serveral hours of your time. We were fortunate to arrive just before one of their docents began his tour. Best 90... More

My husband and I recently visited the Museum, April 2015. I normally get bored going to places like this, however I really enjoyed this museum. There are lots of great cars to look at. There is also a display of what woman would wear in the old days, hats, purses, I thought that was really nice to see. Most museums... More

I have been to the Ford Museum but enjoyed this much more. The cars are shown in the time period and social context so much more interesting. Pristine condition and dedicated car loving staff. Well worth a few hours. I also enjoyed the excellent clothing exhibits, some of best period clothing I have seen in any museum.
