WOW - what a great display of autos. Take the audio tour - it is worth it but takes some additional time. You need about 2 hours to have time to take a good look at everything. Very friendly, helpful people on board - looks like they are all volunteers which is amazing!!! Good for all the people who are helping keep this museum alive - it is a treasure!

Well laid out plan. Display setup in areas focuses on period of cars. Took about an hour to go through. One could get a guided tour which would take longer. Parking onsite is plentiful.

Here you can see the development of the automobile from the horseless carriage to modern cars.

Husband really wanted to go - I thought I would be searching for benches! Once inside I realized what a treasure this is. The cars are thoughtfully displayed - it is like a Disney setting for cars of all types. It is immaculate inside. They also have a collection of vintage dresses, hat pins, purses and more - again , interesting and beautifully displayed. Ladies, I recommend you don't "opt out" of this experience. A must see in Reno.
