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.

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.

We toured at our own pace. Quite a fascinating collection. Thank goodness people have initiative to put a collection like this together and others keep it available for all to see.

A collection of over 200 cars, mostly very old, all in beautiful shape. I'm generally very interested in cars, but it was very interesting. Takes about 2 hrs to walk through.

This is a great museum. They have a huge collection, it will take you a while to go through every show room, and you definitely get your moneys worth. Its very educational & they offer audio assistance so you don't have to read everything, which is a wonderful tool for anyone. I will be returning in the future, to support... More

Great collection nicely presented. Some unique cars, particularly pre-40s. I expected to spend a couple of hours, but took about 5 hours to work through it. A must see if you have any interest in cars.
