We have been to several classic car museums, and this one is by far the best organized and presented. There is a definite flow between the different showrooms, with a few interactive displays. There was also the space museum, with more hands on activities that would appeal to kids as well as adults. The display with the original vehicle used in the New York to Paris race was especially interesting. There is also a nice history about William Harrah (of the Harrah's casino) since this is mostly his collection. There is a nice short film, and usually a guided tour once a day (there was no volunteer to do the tour on the day we went). There are also some period costumes on display. Definitely a place where you could spend hours looking at all the displays. Highly recommend this museum!

Best collection of pre 1930 cars anywhere. You can spend and afternoon there easy, go back the next day and see all different stuff. The guide was very informed and interesting as well.

Near downtown Reno and close to the Aces stadium, the National Automobile Museum is a great place to see example of cars from the past. Some of the cars have what their original was. Right now their is also a space exhibit. Really great if you love cars and also, if you want to look back on how far the automobile has evolved over the years.

My husband went to see the car museum while I was busy with my conference. He loved it! He's always been interested in unusual cars and he found them here. He says if we ever get back to Reno, we have to go again. Price was very reasonable.

Based on the collection of Bill Harrah, of Harrah's Resort and Casino fame, this is one of the most impressive car collections you will ever see. The displays also educate while entertaining, and one can learn a lot of the history of the automobile and the industry by spending a day here. This is my pick for the top attraction in Reno.
