Spent several hours touring the various rooms and exhibits.Staff were very helpful and answered many questions. Like how the museum rooms are separated by decades. A must see for the car enthusiast.

I'm not a car buff but this museum is amazing. I don't know how Mr. Bill Harrah amassed such a unique and one of a kind vehicles but he certainly had the skill and the money to purchase so many unique and beautiful automobiles. This is a museum that will be enjoyed by everyone. I loved not only viewing the... More

Great place to visit. Allow 2 hours.well priced and appeared to be run by volunteers, which tells me they actually care. Loads of US cars that looked Like they were part of a private collection. Not too many European cars though. Great place to go with kids, and great staff. Thanks.

The National Automobile Museum is a an interesting place to visit. Fun layouts and facades with interesting information on the cars displayed. Leave yourself plenty of time to take pictures and read the histories. The collection of cars here is simply amazing and will amaze you with the beauty of each well preserved car.

Well laid out, interesting information provided, amazing collection of vehicles and much more. We had planned on an hour or so visit and stayed for nearly four and even then didn't read everything we wanted . This is a must see -contains some cars that only one was ever built and some famous stars cars too. Highly recommended.

This is one of the top attractions in Reno. All visitors will learn something about the history of automobiles. The large number of classic autos is outstanding. I would recommend it for all ages over about 10 years.
