We had a great visit as the collection is so large there is always something I missed. The cars are lovingly displayed and you can get close to most of them.

So many cars...all of great historical significance. You really get a first-hand tour of the evolution of the automobile. The first steam, electric and combustion driven autos are all here. Amazing.

This is a great place to visit when you're in Reno. It's conveniently located near downtown. The cars are amazing and the information you learn about Mr. Harrah is pretty neat too. Staff is very friendly. Definitely worth a visit!

On a quick trip to Reno and decided to stop in. More vehicles than I can count. My 15 year old enjoyed it too. No muscle cars but a wonderful look at the progression over the years.

Amazing and jaw-dropping collection of hundreds of cars celebrating the American automobile ingenuity and engineering since the late 1800s. All cars in excellent condition and very impressive to watch. Much historical pride through decades of innovation and vivid styles. 4 halls and few streets filled...More

I have been to Reno so many times, including Hot August Nights, with my restored '56 Chevy. Finally found the time to visit the museum and was not disappointed. Cars go all the way back to the 17th century, steam and electric. The property is...More

I saw more old cars and more brands than I ever knew existed. Also so many ideas that today we think are new were used many many years ago.
