“very good”
Reviewed June 14, 2013

I am an old cars lover, the museum is free of charge. The car collection is extensive and varied with wonderful labeling. I had never heard of many of the old makes and models. I did enjoyed the collection of old hood ornaments.

“Incredible Find”
Reviewed June 12, 2013

We're fans of the National History Museum in Reno. We love looking at vintage cars. And we've passed this place hundreds of times on our way to the freeway or Granada Hills. It is an incredible find. Antique cars--for free. Additional tours must be booked in advance, but even the main show room is worth a 90 minute visit. What a gift to the community.

“What a great Museum and it is free!”
Reviewed June 12, 2013

This museum is amazing and I really like the whole place. One one side of the street they have an amazing car collection and a steam locomotive. On the other side of the street in a multi-story building they have large collectable organs and many other items. This museum is worth going out of your way for!

“Very impressive array of priceless vintage and classic luxury cars, compliments of Merle Norman Cosmetics!”
Reviewed June 10, 2013 via mobile

First, this is truly a treasured jewel, that needs more exposure - to share with others whom appreciate a piece of history. The complimentary museum and tour were impressive, and educationally entertaining!

Definitely make a reservation online for the complimentary 2 hour tour. Arrive 1 hour prior to the tour to peruse and enjoy the main vintage and classical car building.


My favorites were the Bugatti, Mercedes, Rolls Royces in the main building.

Across the street, is the reserved 2 hr private group tour, which is intimate, informative, and educational about Merle Norman's passion for the Pebble Beach Concours competitions.

The tall building goes up several stories fir the tour. There is much dated traditional decor and antiques inside. The grand salon, corporate dining room, and Wurlitzer organ musical and sound room are truly unique. I loved the vintage Maybach and Deusenberg cars.

We also enjoyed the end of the tour with the customized Pullman train walk through, with the history of how the Baldwin (owner of Baldwin Park, Santa Anita race track in Arcadia) family had purchased it.

Fabulous find and I am definitely sharing it with others! :-)

“Outstanding!”
Reviewed June 9, 2013 via mobile

This was an awesome museum that I would highly recommend for Anyone even remotely interested in automobiles. There are many cars, a fire truck, a camper from the 30's, and much more. It was close to out hotel and we almost missed it. No admission fee which makes it even better, even though it would be a value at any price.
