Took out of town visitors and we had great fun taking pictures wit the old cars. The men liked talking about engines and remembering first cars. Fun afternoon.

We had a great experience. Arrived in time to see the short film on the history of the museum and then the guided tour. the tour guide was very knowledgeable and went into wonderful detail about each car. The highlight for me was seeing the Fearless Flyer from the race around the world.

Wonderful collection. Cars are fully restored and in factory condition. Some bring back memories. Easy walk to hotels. This is the remains of the Harrah collection and not to be missed.

Our family went to see the National Automobile Museum because we'd seen all the rave reviews. We were not disappointed! We went as a family with parents, 3 teen boys and 1 teen girl. I must say that nobody is a car buff (except me), but we all thoroughly enjoyed the museum. Others have already shared about the amazing collection... More

If you like cars this is a great place in Reno. When in Las Vegas visit the Auto Collection at The LINQ Hotel & Casino. When in Laughlin, NV visit the car collection at the Riverside Hotel Casino (it is free).

Even if you're not a hardcore car enthusiast, I think it would be difficult not to be taken in by all the phenomenal cars at this museum. Their website says the casual purveyor could expect to spend two hours there, while the connoisseur could be there all day, and they're pretty much right on. My only regret was getting there...

The museum is well laid out, good explanations of vehicles and their histories. The settings and backdrops make the experience even better. I went to a wedding here a couple of years ago also, and it was wonderful!
