“Great display of cars!”
Reviewed November 20, 2012

Wonderful collection of cars and other motor vehicles. Absolutely beautiful! But beware muscle car fans; if you’re looking for cars from the 70s and 80s you won't find them here. The majority of the collection is from the owner and when he died in the 70's, the additions became limited. So there is no real collection of cars that would fit into the muscle car category. But great representation of all cars from the late 1800’s thru 1970.

“One of the best auto museums in the country”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

The National Automobile Museum was started with the cream of the crop from the Harrah's auto collection after Bill Harrah died and his vast collection of unique autos was in danger of being broken up. You can see vehicles from all of the famous manufacturers of yesteryear, including many that are truly one of a kind. The layout is great and the selection of wonderfully restored cars is amazing to see. You can easily spend hours inside if you're a true car buff. The docents are volunteers who are full of facts and very friendly. This place is a must see if you visit Reno.

“Great Museum plus Great Venue”
Reviewed November 15, 2012

There is no place like this anywhere else for your event. Stroll the streets. Hear the stories. Hours of entertainment for hundreds of people. They'll be very impressed with you.

“Wow!”
Reviewed November 14, 2012

It cost $10 for adult admission. The cars are well displayed and lots of them. The museum layout is creative and enjoyable. They even have other items to look at other then cars but the main focus is the cars.

Well worth a visit and bring your camera.

“Amazing!! Must see if you like cars”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

My boyfriend and I decided to check out the museum during our trip to Reno. We could have spent days looking around here. The cars are immaculate and amazing. Everything you could ever imagine in an auto museum is here and I highly recommend visiting.
