National Automobile Museum


Reno has a great automobile museum, and the last time we went to the National Automobile Museum was probably 10 or more years ago, so we decided to go today. It was great 10 years ago, and it's still the same today. The museum layout and Main street design, along with old clothing, shoes, purses and jewelry from the early 1900s really helps you imagine what the time periods were like. They even had early 1900s piano music playing as we looked at the early 1900s cars, and 1950s music playing in the 1950s display room. 

This car was used in the movie Titanic.

This little room had blacksmith-type sounds playing; that vehicle Savannah is standing next to was actually an automobile, even thought it looks like a horse carriage. 

I'm trying to figure out what the name of the song playing is, while enjoying the music. (It was "My Blue Heaven")

They don't want you to touch any of the cars throughout the museum, but here is one car they allow you to sit in, which was cool for photo ops. 

This was a Rolls Royce.

engine displays that showed how engines operated; push the button and watch the moving parts.

This was a mock-mechanic's shop, with sounds of tools and machines playing. (That's a Buick Skylark)

They had a space section, all about space travel.
