Great look into the automobile's history brought to life by a Docent's tour. If you like cars it is a great way to see the way they evolved and the people who developed the technology.

Every corner of this place had another "WOW!" car. They have an excellent selection of vintage, unusual, eclectic cars that are exceptionally restored. Plan most of a day to really enjoy all the displays. You'll find many a car you wish you had and even some that maybe you can remember seeing when you were young.

This a surprisingly interesting museum. It has several themed areas and street scenes so isn't just one big room full of cars. They have some period costumes in one room and a hands in display of an engine as well. It is very clean, well lit, and has a nice gift store. We've taken several out of town visitors here... More

No dislikes, just a wonderful place to visit... Had not been there since Bill Harrah passed... They did a great job of moving it down town... Cars are mainly grouped by age.... Great experience if you like cars and history..

I've been to the National Automobile Museum many times and always enjoy it. I've taken out-of-town guests from as far away as Hong Kong and every one of them has spent far more time than I thought studying each of the hundreds of beautifully-restored cars. Featuring autos from the late 1800's through the 1970s - organized in large rooms by... More

They have so many beautiful old cars, I want one!!! I loved the Cabroilet, did not see a Corvair there, that would have been nice. But all in all it was great.

Super old school cars, fire trucks and more! It was a lot of fun to look at the first cars out there and see the progression over time. Worth the money with all the different things to check out!

very informative lots of history about the early automobiles and their inventors. Please ask for a audio device they are part of the ticket price and would give you more information about the cars and less reading.
