This is a great place to see a wonderful collection of olf cars and their history! I've been multiple times. I love how the museum looks like little cities of different time periods. Some of the cars change, but others are always there. Plan to spend at least 2-3 hours during your visit. There's quite a bit of walking to... More

I am a car buff and loved to look at all of the old cars. You could easily lose a half a day just taking your time and really enjoying the place and what it has to offer.

What a wonderful place to visit. The staff here is friendly and knowledgeable. The price at $10 per person is reasonable given the amount of maintenance required of not only the building but the 100s of cars as well. As a non profit they can always use your tax deductible donation, I know my wife and I will be looking... More

We had dinner here as part of our convention. The catered food was good. The antique cars were amazing & worth going to see.

This Museum is a must see in Reno. The quantity and quality of the automobiles on display are awe-inspiring. The collection reflects the history and entrepreneurial spirit of individuals with advancing motorized transportation over time. My husband and I love to take relatives to the Museum when they visit us in Reno. The National Automobile Museum has something there to... More

There are cars there that you don't see any more and some with a history that is fun to learn about. They have a motorcycle there that has been ridden around the world. All vehicles there are well done and displayed with care of a auto buff. You can step back in time and memories of days gone by as... More

This is an excellent museum and the knowledgeable guide picked out the highlights but I would recommend going back to look at some of the cars not covered in the highlights. How long depends on your company! Some amazing vehicles to see.

This museum is worth every penny of the admission price! Don't miss it! Many of the cars are displayed in staged street scenes. In the galleries the autos are displayed in chronological order, starting in 1892. The beauty of each unique one of a kind vehicle is awe inspiring. To top it off, we took the docent tour at 1:30...

I took my father, my brother and our kids to this attraction while visiting Reno recently. I was blown away by this museum. The collection of cars represented in the museum was phenomenal! They also have fashions "of the times" for visitors who are not quite as enamored by the cars, and a kid friendly photo opportunity where the kids... More

Great place to walk through and let your brain go back in time. Work the time and money to go by and see what they have in the museum. The staff is great and puts a lot of time into making your visit special.
