This is an awesome collection of vehicles. The staff in this place are really nice. If you're in Reno you should stop into this pace, even if you're not into cars it's a look at history and engineering.

Be sure to take your camera. Amazing: who built an automobile so beautiful? Who owned a car that unusual? Extremely intersting history for the whole family!

We will need to visit it once again, since it is really cool but if you love cars and historic you have to spend the whole day at it. Our problem we were here for the Street Vibrations so we could not spend a lot of time to enjoy it as it has to.

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.
