  • A nice musem, good display.Decorations set the mood for car's era. The gift shop prices are reasonable.  more »
  • I like old cars, so I was looking forward to this museum. I was not disappointed. There is an especially fine collection of "brass cars" (pre-WW1), but the collection goes all the way up to the 60s. T...  more »

  • This is one of my favorite places in Reno. Beautiful cars, clean and well lit buildings. It's fun for the whole family. There is also some space exploration interactive games and visual aides. You can come here for an hour to just see the cars or longer reading all the little facts on all the cars. Either way you are sure to enjoy it.
  • I'm not really a "car person" and only visited to please others I was traveling with. I was pleasantly surprised, however, at how enjoyable this was. Endless impeccably restored cars , grouped by time frame, often on simulated streets. They do offer a guided tour, however, at an hour and a half, even the greatest of the car fans in my group lost interest. This museum is modern, clean, and a great way to pass a bit of time. The phantom corvair was unreal and will forever live in my dreams.
  • Great collection. Had no trouble spending 3 hours there. Saw many car manufacturers that I never heard of. Beatiful condition. Enjoy.
  • Amazing unique car pieces that can only be seen here. From a 24k gold plated delorean to a large collection of Cadillacs, Oldsmobiles, Fords. Guides were extremely insightful and I highly recommend going on a tour. The tie-in with some space exhibits was interesting but more geared for children however there was a few places where even an adult can have some fun.
  • Excellent place for fans of automobiles! There are cars from all different time periods, you learn so much history about automobiles. I can't express how surprised I was to see soooo many cars in the museum. There are so many different halls and rooms filled with them! Just caught a pic of the gold painted DeLorean at the entrance.

Where to stay in Reno

Since Reno's casinos want you to save your money for the blackjack table, they offer some very reasonable rates on their rooms. Even a stay in one of the amenity-rich resort- or spa-style casinos downtown can be quite affordable. Plenty of hotels, motels, inns, and lodges are scattered throughout town, though most lie in and around downtown. If you're planning to ski in the mountains west of town, staying near Interstate 80 can save a couple minutes on your commute. Accommodations in Reno generally remain easy to find, but the days before and after the popular Burning Man festival in the desert east of the city tend to see a bump in visitors. Consider booking ahead if your visit coincides with the festival.
