Lots of great machines to lust after. More than even Reggie Jackson owns all in one place and viewable.

Wonderful autos that are historically significant and rare. It was a treat to visit. I also liked the historic clothing described and displayed in the museum.

The vintage cars were beautiful. The layout of the museum is very nice. This was the highlight of our trip for my husband.

This museum has the most astonishing collection of rare and one-of-a-kind automobiles I've ever seen. AND it's dirt cheap ... $10 for adults and $4 for kids. AND the cars all look like they just rolled off the assembly line, although many of them pre-date assembly lines. Bill Harrah took extraordinary care to renovate these cars to their original condition.... More

Every type of car from eras of 1900 thru 1970’s in fact so many we got a little tired of seeing so many rare and incredibly restored vehicles many with a history from their owners, worth the Ten dollars each and allow 90 minutes

No dislikes, I love cars and enjoy the history of evolution of the industry. Not only are cars there, there are period clothing & accessories of both genders on display.

Imagine my surprise when I found myself totally enthralled with the displays and the diversity! The number of limited edition cars and experimental/prototype vehicles was boggling. The placards in front of each... More

We booked this museum in the evening for a wedding rehearsal dinner. All of the guests got admission to the museum. It's terrific and far exceeded my expectations. The displays are impressive and the cars -- to die for. This is an incredible collection. And they have docents who are fill of knowledge. Check this place out! You will not... More

Good way to spend a portion of your afternoon. It is mostly older 30's and below cars, no muscle cars. Still a very good museum though. There are four sections; the last one doesn't really fit in with the museum. It's more of a NASCAR/race car theme. Pricing was reasonable.
