About these ratings

Baby, you can't drive these cars, but for most auto aficionados, admiring them will be enough. The National Automobile Museum is home to more than 220 cars dating back to the 19th century. You'll find classic cars, race cars and sports cars, as well as an impressive collection of celebrity rides. Some of the museum's most notable pieces include the Thomas Flyer (winner of the 1908 Around-the-World Race) and the 1949 Mercury Series 9CM driven by James Dean in the film, Rebel Without a Cause.

Even those without even the slightest fascination in cars say that a stop at this museum is a must for Reno visitors. "This is a really outstanding museum and is well worth it even if you have only a passing interest in cars," says one TripAdvisor user. "There is something here to please everybody, including interesting bits and pieces of 'Americana' and even some antique dresses on display."

Sitting on the Truckee River in downtown Reno, the National Automobile Museum is open Monday through Saturday from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and on Sundays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is $10 for adults, while children and seniors qualify for a reduced rate.
