The National Automobile Museum, located just south of the Truckee River in Reno, Nevada, displays historic automobiles from the late 19th century and from throughout the 20th. Most of the vehicles displayed are from the collection of the late casino owner William F. Harrah, and so the museum is sometimes referred to as The Harrah Collection. The museum opened in 1989.

This is a great museum with over 200 cars on display for you to see! We listed it as one of the best things to do when visiting Reno.

Nice place to see all of the old cars. Admission wasn’t too expensive. Highly recommended making a stop here.

Great cars, great story and traffic presentation. Can't help feeling sad that this is only a fraction of the original collection. Specializing in special interest and one of a kind vehicles.

Great displays and information on special cars. Many one of a kind and rare vehicles from manufacturers with short lives.

Since you're on a road trip, it's only appropriate that you stop by one of the most comprehensive car museums in the country. Even if you aren't into cars, it's worth it to see the vehicles owned by Frank Sinatra, JFK, James Dean, Elvis, and more, or the cars from Titanic (yes, THAT car) and Rebel Without a Cause-- although their collection of rare and expensive cars and exhibits on all kinds of car-related events are awesome as well.

Really cool cars from late 1800s to 1950s. A few after that but not many. Worth a stop. $10 for adults and $4 for children. Boys loved the gold DeLorean. Parking is free for the museum.
