My friends, my wife and myself walked into the museum and my jaw dropped to the floor. I couldn't believe these cars! Just beautiful. From the beginning of car making, every car there was there in order. I was amazed that even back then, the...More

While the collection there today is only about 20% of Mr. Bill Harrah's original antique car collection, this is a must visit for anyone interested car history and collectable automobiles.

Excellent display of turn of the century vehicles. Well worth the modest price of admission. My wife and I spent around three hours touring the displays any thoroughly enjoyed it.

This is a nice museum for something to do in Reno. The car exhibits are organized chronologically through time which was cool to follow the development historically. There is plenty of information and facts to read throughout. It’s a great collection. Don’t miss the movie...More

I would say that it is a biggest cars collection I ever saw. A lot of cars from 1920-1930... looks amazing. You should plan at least 1.5 hours for it.

I have been here a few times over the years. It is nicely stocked with great cars and historical information. I hope they repair the theater soon. A few more seating areas in each gallery would be nice too.
