Location Details

The National Automobile Museum's 105,000-square-foot building features unique period street settings complete with storefronts and facades, including a blacksmith shop, a 1930s movie theatre, a turn-of-the-century main street, an old-fashioned service station, etc. It also contains five galleries of exceptional automobiles and related artifacts. The world-renowned collection contains more than 225 rare, orphan, one-of-a-kind, antique, and collector cars (ranging from 1892 to 2002). The majority (175) of the Museum's automobiles were formerly owned by the late, world-famous gaming pioneer and collector Bill Harrah. The venue also features a 157-seat theatre, podcast studio, TV studio, and multiple event areas available for filming, including a 16,000 sq. ft. riverfront patio venue with a 40 ft. bar pavilion overlooking the beautiful Truckee River. We are also adjacent to the original Reno Arch on Lake Street.
