“Worth the time.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013 via mobile

Very interesting history of the beginning of the automobile. Dont expect to go here and see a ton of muscle cars, its a history museum not a car show. Love the way the they made the walkways look like time themed streets. Awesome.

“Take time to enjoy the guided tour with Stan!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

This is an amazing treasure of cars! In order to get the most details and facts about the automobiles,you MUST meet and take a guided tour with Stan the museum volunteer! His tours start at 1:30 but it is best if you arrive a bit earlier 1:15 or so to meet with and get acquainted with Stan. He is incredibly knowledgeable and will give you so much more info! The museum opens earlier if you wish to take the self guided tour but meeting and taking the tour with Stan will be the best way to get so much MORE! His tour is about 90 minutes and the time just flies! He is open for questions and is a walking wealth of information! He is a gem to this museum! Meet him and you'll be glad you did!!!

“What an enjoyable way to spend a few hours!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

The Harrahs collection is so interesting. They have a huge collection and some beautiful, fascinating cars.

As a history lover, I appreciated seeing JFK's Lincoln, Elvis's Cadillac, John Wayne's Corvette, and literally the hundreds of other cars that have stood the test of time.

Make sure you pick up the audio set to educate yourself on the tour!
