What our visitors are saying about their experience.
The museum is well done and there is a nice theater where one can learn about Bill Harrah. The car collection is large and is of interest to both car aficionados as casual viewers.Katrina S., Yelp
Totally enjoyed it. Many great cars, it was bigger and better than expected. Thought it was great seeing some of the cars used in movies and cars owned by famous people!Scot B., TripAdvisor
I love cars, I am a gearhead. They have so many Big Daddy Roth ratrods that I was in heaven. I loved this place so much and want to take my dad there some day.Tanya W., Google
An important historical collection of vintage cars, displayed in themed scenes. You’ll experience a walk back in time as you stroll through the streets and scenes from the day, truly a fine museum.Carli T., TripAdvisor
