A few months ago I tagged along on one of the HH’s business trips. It’s a great way to see new places on the cheap, and keep him company on boring work trips.
While Reno wouldn’t be among my top vacation destinations, we decided to make the most of it and explore everything the biggest little city had to offer.
During some of his downtime we stopped by the National Automobile Museum. If you are a car lover, you MUST put this on your bucket list. I’m not much of a car lover myself but I kinda wanted to be one after seeing this museum. It was so cool. The museum is home to more than 200 vehicles.
We seriously saw all sorts: vintage, classic, rare, weird, and special interest cars, plus race cars and this awesome Horseless Carriage collection. Most of the vehicles on display are from Bill Harrah’s personal estate. I guess he’s one of Nevada’s casino gaming pioneers, so he’s a big deal! I didn’t know who he was, but he clearly had a thing for cars!
The museum is massive, and in addition to seeing all the cars, they have audio or daily guided tours, story boards and even a bunch of theater presentations. We didn’t stay for one, but they were packed and it looked like people were enjoying themselves. If you are a car buff, this museum is absolutely worth the admission price!
Have you ever been? What did you think?
