Very good display of the history of motor vehicles. Descriptions of each vehicle as well as displays of period gowns. Easy to spend two or more hours. At least 3-4 hours if you read each description or examine each item.

As a car lover this is heaven, but even if you aren't a "car lover" I'd say this museum can instill a new appreciation for the automobile. Just a shame it could've been so much more if the original Harrah collection was sold off

These cars are definitely a work of art beyond description. We did not get to see All of the cars and will look forward to taking another trip to Reno to see more. Our three hours... More

The very best in historic Vehicles. A great place for a large group party also. The one I attended had about 175 people in the group. They can also serve delicious food as well.

It is run mainly by volunteers, and they take great care of all of them in great detail. If you love... More

I love this place. I may be female, but they have so many cool cars. Some of my friends think I'm crazy, but I can spend hours here looking at the cars. Good place to spend a few hours if you like cars.
