Well designed and exhibited museum.
NileGuide Expert tip:
The 1936 Mercedes Benz Sport Coupe is one of three left in the world...and it will stop your heart with its beauty.
The National Automobile Museum houses more than 220 antique, vintage, classic, special-interest, and "cars-of-the-stars" vehicles from the Bill Harrah Collection. The cars are displayed in a realistic street theme complete with asphalt hallways and '50s and '60s-style diners and drive-in movie sets.
There are several celebrity vehicles located here including a 1941 Chrysler Newport owned by Lana Turner's husband, the 1907 Thomas Flyer which won the 1908 New York to Paris race, James Dean's 1949 Mercury Coupe from Rebel Without a Cause, and a gold-plated 1981 De Lorean LK Sport Coupe.
The Museum is available for private parties and events and there is a small gift shop. The admission price for adults is $10, seniors are $8 and children are $4. Ages 5 and under get in free.
