Event & Party Venue

The National Automobile Museum, with 225  automobiles on period street scenes in a 105,000 sq. ft. building, is also Northern Nevada’s most unique event and party venue. Located near downtown and midtown, the Museum has been named #1 Thing To Do In Reno and #1 Museum in Reno by TripAdvisor.

If you decide to host your event at the Museum, our team will work with you to create whatever you’re looking for, whether it’s an entire Museum takeover, a more traditional banquet, an outdoor gathering on our new 16,000 sq. ft. Riverfront Pavilion with a full bar, an awards ceremony in our 157-seat theater, or something else. You’ll have your own Museum Host Ambassador on-site to ensure your event runs smoothly, as well as knowledgeable docents if you think your guests would appreciate a tour. 

In addition to being a unique place to explore (and take pictures), we make event planning convenient, as we can provide a permanent performance  stage; full AV equipment and services; along with tables, chairs and linens – already located on site. And there is on-site, accessible parking (no stairs) and a separate bus entrance. The entire venue is non-smoking.
