Very pleasant place to check out classic cars. Looking @ the different era cars brings back the nostalgic thoughts. Going to the museum is a worthwhile visit!!!

Educational, inexpensive, convenient and surprisingly entertaining. The collection of automobiles is expansive, diverse and nothing short of amazing. A very relaxing experience which my family and I have repeated many times. One of the premiere attractions in Northern Nevada.

I don't think many realize the great auto collection that is housed here. If you love old cars this is the place to go. I have visited many auto museums and the displays here are fantastic and get a great view of the cars. Plan a couple of hours to really see and learn about each car, less time if... More

Very good display of vintage and rare cars, well presented. I took my parents who enjoyed it especially from a nostalgic Hollywood perspective.

I had the opportunity to take my parents to this wonderful attraction. My older brother and I, also enjoyed ourselves. We all enjoyed the tour. The tour guide was awesome considering we had two wheel chairs with us. He was very knowledgeable about the history of the car industry. I highly recommend doing the tour if possible.

This museum should be on the must see list for locals and tourists alike. It is an easy walk from anywhere downtown, and has plenty of parking. The displays are chronological and they are not just cars, they are educational, funny and thought-provoking. There are tons of photo ops and an excellent gift shop. Check the website for free admission... More

there are several galleries of antique cars, but what I love the most are the era street scenes. f you are a car nut, you'll spend all day. If youaren't, it's worth an hour or two.

This is a must for anyone passing through Reno who has any interest in vintage automobiles. Harrah was a huge collector and it's all found here. This one is world class. There's plenty of room to roam and you won't be hassled by large groups.

Though the powers that be sold off most of Bill Harrahs automobile and plane collection, they did keep the best and gathered them together in an attractive setting. It's entertaining for all ages and can be taken in as a one day adventure as opposed to the days it used to take to get through the big collection
