National Automobile Museum Reno, Nevada July 10, 2012
On this blog I highlight museums throughout Nevada which are worth visiting. One of these local gems is the National Automobile Museum in Reno, Nevada. The museum has a collection of 200 vintage cars from Bill Harrah. At the time of his death, Bill Harrah, owner of Harrah's Casinos, owned over 2,000 vintage automobiles. Holiday Corporation, which purchased Harrah's after Bill's death, donated over 175 cars and a research library in 1989. Admission is $10 to enter. The museum has an impressive amount of information about each car on display as well as the history of the automobile in America.
