The National Automobile Museum in Reno, Nevada has over 200 cars on display. The collection is part of the Harrah Collection. You can find everything from antique cars to streetcars.
There are four galleries divided by the year of the vehicle. Make sure and give yourself more than enough time to wander around the museum. It was so much larger than what we expected it to be.
