“Take time to enjoy the guided tour with Stan!”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

This is an amazing treasure of cars! In order to get the most details and facts about the automobiles,you MUST meet and take a guided tour with Stan the museum volunteer! His tours start at 1:30 but it is best if you arrive a bit earlier 1:15 or so to meet with and get acquainted with Stan. He is incredibly knowledgeable and will give you so much more info! The museum opens earlier if you wish to take the self guided tour but meeting and taking the tour with Stan will be the best way to get so much MORE! His tour is about 90 minutes and the time just flies! He is open for questions and is a walking wealth of information! He is a gem to this museum! Meet him and you'll be glad you did!!!

So many great cars! Something that the whole family enjoyed! We walked around for a few hours which was a nice welcome after being in the car so long! We'd definitely go back!

“What an enjoyable way to spend a few hours!”
Reviewed July 12, 2013

The Harrahs collection is so interesting. They have a huge collection and some beautiful, fascinating cars.

As a history lover, I appreciated seeing JFK's Lincoln, Elvis's Cadillac, John Wayne's Corvette, and literally the hundreds of other cars that have stood the test of time.

Make sure you pick up the audio set to educate yourself on the tour!

“The History of the Automobile made Fascinating”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

I truly enjoyed wandering through this museum. It is laid out in an easy, pleasant way. Each area is done up in the time period of the cars which makes it even more fun. The clothing and hat pins collected by Harrah are an interesting addition to the museum.
It is a fascinating place to view the history of the automobile (I wish they'd had some new cars--that would have made it exceptional!).
