There were hundreds of cars in mint contrition from as early as 1892. There were steam driven automobiles (like the 1892 Philion), electric cars (like the 1912 Baker) as well as traditional gasoline powered. There were mass produced cars from Ford to the Oldsmobile and more; as well as very limited production vehicles that were very pricey at the time and are priceless at this time.

Obviously, if you are not really all that interested in automobiles and their history--this would not be the place for you. I have been to several and this one RANKS as HIGH as any of the others I have witnessed.

I'm not normally an auto history enthusiast. It didn't matter. The NAM was an impressive and expansive museum with knowledgeable docents. We spent a couple of hours turning corners and saying "wow!" as we came across really rare and beautiful autos from the beginning of the automobile era.

A must see if you love collectable cars. Not as much fun as in the old days when you when to Harrah's Car collection but still a great collection of cars, great location close to town, easy to walk to and very well laid out.

Even for someone who is not an auto aficionado, this place was superb - like a history lesson. The docents were extremely knowledgeable and helpful. The audio tour was great. My husband brought back a book about Harrah and the collection that started this great place.

if you love cars this will re-new your vows! a really cool place to see some awe inspiring historical pieces of automotive genius from steam power to one of the earliest camper/rv's to elvis's 73' caddy & the merc' from "rebel with out a cause". If you want to beat the weather & the casino atmosphere---check this place out. Any rat fink lovers? they've got a few for you too. we spent almost 3 hrs. looking at & reading on the history of these cars.weleft because we got hungry but I plan on going back.
