Well done

Displays were great and the vehicles were excellent. Stuff you don't see very often. We enjoyed our afternoon there.

Wonderful experience and definitely a place I will return to when I'm in the area. Admission is reasonable, allows leaving and re-entry and is good for the whole day (which you will need to see all the exhibits). Best advice is to go when they first open in the morning and take a lunch break returning after lunch. I personally... More

We weren't expecting the museum to be as large as it was. The cars were placed in different rooms according to age. There was detailed information for each car, including the price the car originally sold for. So interesting. There is a AAA discount off the already reasonable price. Give yourself a good couple hours to truly appreciate all the... More

I went with my husband who is a car fanatic. I had no interest in going, but there isn't much to do in Reno, so I went. It was great! So many cars, so many eras. It kept my interest for over 2 hours. A must!

We had a great time viewing this amazing car collection. Seriously. I'm not really a car buff and found it amazing. I, being a Downton Abbey viewer, kept inquiring as to where Mary's trunks were kept as there wasn't a lot of luggage space in those 1910-1930 cars.

Walked through the doors and instantly experienced the past... so many beautiful examples of our automotive history. It was an unguided tour so we had all the time we needed to take it all in. Something for everyone!!

I had a great time at Atlantis Casino and my trip to the national Automobile Museum. I was a nice break from the busy and at times frenetic goings on in the Casino. I had the best time playing Blackjack.

A shadow of Bill Harrahs collection remains but still well displayed and a wide variety of cars. Even if you aren't a car guy it a good visit.

This collection is one of the largest I have ever seen, done in sections by the year of the cars - it is just an incredible and beautiful collection of antique right up into the 50's cars, Really enjoyed this,
