The mission of the National Automobile Museum (The Harrah Collection) is to collect and preserve the automobile for future generations and to tell the story of the impact of the automobile on American society.
Inside the Museum, it’s like driving a century in just two hours, letting visitors travel through time like few other places. Four period street scenes represent each quarter of the 20th century, with facades, autos and artifacts reflecting each era’s styles and moods. A timeline of events and achievements on each street chronicles the history and progress of the automobile.
Beyond the streets, visitors discover a century of automobiles--more than 200 antique, vintage, classic and special interest vehicles ranging from 1892 to present. The Museum, considered to have one of the finest horseless carriage collections in the world, is also known for its many rare, experimental and one-of-a-kind automobiles.
However, the road doesn’t end there. Each year the Museum offers a series of new exhibits. Masterpiece Exhibits feature themed-car displays and the Changing Exhibits Gallery covers a variety of topics from art to historical features.
The Museum Store is filled with an array of automotive-related gifts and merchandise, and offers a large selection of books, with more than 480 titles ranging from restoration resources to cookbooks and children’s selections.
