Exceeded all my expectations. The cars and the environments they are in are great. The volunteers could not have been any nicer, especially to my sons and my nephews. They really cater to kids having a good time. We only spent about two hours here because we had to catch a flight but we could have stayed a lot longer.... More

The old cars and the history of the car was great. The docent there were very informative. Very inexpensive and close to hotel locations.

Huge museum, lots to see, take the tour - really worth it! I had no idea how many cars were here and the displays of historical gas stations, car repair shops and diners were charming.

This museum houses an unbelievable collection of automobiles. They ranged from barely horseless carriages to the most luxurious Rolls Royces. Imagine a car that cost $10,000 in the early 1900's. Some were owned at one time by famous celebrities. There is one and only one car you can sit in. Near the classic vintage car are two racks of coats,... More

The entry fee is nominal and the experience is jaw-dropping. When visiting, allow at least a couple of hours and do take the personal tour. The tour guide is phenomenal and is a walking encyclopedia on vintage and antique cars.

Something interesting to do in Reno... Wouldn't go out of my way for this... It was fun taking pics with the cars and they had one you could actually climb into.

Harrah's auto collection is presented at this museum. It has a great layout. Alot of variety and history. I'm not a car buff; but, I can understand how and why people become fascinated by cars. I would return again. I'm sure I missed alot and would see new things on a second or third visit.

What a surprising place to find in Reno!!! Great collection of cars (many of which I had never heard of), the displays were wonderful (loved the period idea rather than just throwing a bunch of cars in a warehouse). We were there for 1 1/2 to 2 hours and had we not been so tired, could have spent some more... More

What an amazing collection of cars. All the cars are in such excellent condition. Spend nearly 2 hours just looking around. The way the place is set up with cars of different time periods is a good idea. Well worth a visit for any car enthusiast.
