this is one of the best automobile Museums on the world. You shouldn't miss it. No matter you gamble or not, win or lode, just go to visit it you will feel better and spend time worthily.

I think you need at least two hours for here to see everything and enjoy the details. They started a program for every first or second Saturday (I am not sure completely) that is just awesome and good specially for kids older than 10.

The National Automobile Museum is a must-see destination for those interested in perfectly restored vintage automobiles. The museum is very well laid out and has some truly outstanding autos of all decades.

Great history lesson in real cars of the development of the auto industry. I didn't know there were so many manufacturers in the early days. And such magnificent cars. In excellent condition. Great way to spend a few hours

If you are any kind of car buff at all, this is the museum to go to. At one time most of the cars belonged to Bill Harrah in his private collection. It has since become the National Automobile Museum and more cars has been...More
