“Impressive!”
Reviewed December 3, 2012

This museum was really impressive. It took a few hours to go through it.....even if you are not a car enthusiast you will still enjoy the history of automobiles and seeing the clothing of some of thw Harrah women. A personal audio system is included on the price of your visit.The staff at the check in area were really, really nice. Go, you won't be sorry!

“Not a Waste of Time”
Reviewed December 1, 2012

This place is a treasure, not to be missed by even my "who cares"-raised-on-a-ranch with beat-up pickups wife. She loved it, and I can't imagine the American Citizen who wouldn't.

“If you're into automotive history, this is the place for you.”
Reviewed December 1, 2012

My wife and I enjoyed this museum. It was laid out very well, seperating the cars out by age. Each car has a plaque with its history and if it was owned by somebody famous. They have some awesome one of a kind examples of big daddy roth cars. Very cool. Only $10 a person and you could spend an entire day in there.

“Unique Collection”
Reviewed December 1, 2012

I had always wanted to see the collection and I was not disappointed. The collection covers all years and is divided into different eras. Sort of a quirky collection, very oriented toward a car buff. It offers some excellent specimens, from the 1937 Heinz Phantom Corsair to the Tucker Torpedo. My better half liked the period costumes and jewelry displayed throughout the collection. You have to see the Jerrari, how they fit that engine in there was a miracle!

“So much better than I expected”
Reviewed November 29, 2012

Honestly wasn't expecting much for a car museum in Reno. I couldn't have been more wrong. Hundreds of cars in primo condition, plus a movie theater and lots of other exhibits.

I don't even like cars and still loved it! Spent 3 hours and had to rush at the end!
