Named an Editors' Pick by AOL Travel, the National Automobile Museum chiefly displays vehicles gathered by casino tycoon and car enthusiast William "Bill" Harrah, including four exhibit halls that display 235 sepia-tinted vehicles from the 1890s to the present day. Each exhibit covers 25 years from an era when cars ruled the earth, and includes dynamic street scenes. The museum building itself aims to imitate the form of a classic automobile, as its facility is adorned with rounded corners and chrome trim and colored in Heather Fire Mist, a popular 1950s car paint. The collection includes many horseless buggies of note, including the Jerrari (a Jeep with a Ferrari engine), the sleek 1938 Phantom Corsair, and a 1941 Chrysler Newport. Feel free to let the audio tour steer you easily through the halls of the museum and sometimes into walls to amuse the audio guides.

Membership includes complimentary admission, half-off admission for any additional guests, and a free subscription to Precious Metal magazine. Members can also take advantage of a 10% discount at the museum store, as well as a priority-attendance pass to limited access events.

National Automobile Museum

Since it opened in 1989, the National Automobile Museum has put the history of automotive travel on full display through exhibits, rare collections, and vehicular ephemera. The museum houses more than 200 cars in all, from the first horseless carriages to vintage and classic models to awe-inspiring oddities. Most hail from the garage of the Harrah’s Hotels and Casinos founder and legendary collector Bill Harrah, whose personal fleet reached approximately 1,400 vehicles. The automobiles are set against a backdrop of exacting street scenes, with set pieces and ambient audio recreating the world in which these artifacts roamed. This degree of detail, coupled with a lineup of permanent and rotating exhibits, has established the museum as among the class of the country's automobile museums. In fact, AutoWeek magazine placed it among its top five in the country.
