An extremely well done museum with an outstanding collection of cars. Some cars are absolutely amazing pieces of art. You can easily take hundreds of photographs. With talk of future expansion, I'll definitely be back.

It's been several yrs since family visited here, but the place is absolutely unforgettable. More actual (not kit) cars than I had ever seen all presented beautifully. If you are a car lover/geek, you must not miss this place if you are anywhere near Reno.

Plan on spending a few hours here! It's like taking a nostalgic trip through the centuries with all the amazing cars to see! A great place for preteens.

My wife and I took the scenic train from San Jose to Reno (which we reviewed also) and visited a few attractions. The auto museum was the highlight of the trip. I'm an older guy and love cars. But I was surprised by how much my wife enjoyed the museum. She was even taking pictures and pointing out interesting things.... More

This National Auto Museum is one of the best in America. It represents a lot of the old Harrah collection. The collection is beautifully displayed in a terrific space along the Truckee River.

The museum is set up in period motif with buildings and scenery applicable to the time period of the vehicles. Very nice presentation as it adds history to the car. Much better than a parking lot comparison some museums do.

Museum was closed. :-( We were able to look through the windows and see many things. Take lots of pictures. They had many unique items.
