We enjoyed a repeat visit to the Reno National Automobile Museum. It was relatively quiet (i.e. few visitors mid week), so the volunteers were very helpful and told us lots about the cars; showed us some of the details; and made our visit very pleasant. The cars are amazing - There are four major galleries. They are grouped by age... More

Very clean, easy to follow, large museum. For AARP/AAA only $9 to enter. I did not have a lot of time and went through in an hour and twenty minutes, but you could easily spend 3 hours.

A terrific collection of old cars, mostly American set in different rooms with settings contemporaneous to the era of the cars. Unanimously held to be one of the top ten car museums in the U.S. and should not be missed by car buffs.

What a nicely done museum! I can say I truly enjoyed my visit here with my husband who is a down to the core car fanatic. Not only do they have awesome cars displayed according to era but have authentic clothing that correlates to that time--fascinating! The narratives and background scenes just set the mood for the cars, there was... More

Wow, this is a wonderful museum with so many great cars. Also, hands on exhibits that are so much fun--from cranking an old car to the fun of dressing up and taking pictures in their old Model T! Plan to spend several hours here and, if you are really into cars, get a docent to walk with you! One can... More
