The Auto Collections

Member Rating 5 out of 5 by Free Spirit on August 21, 2004

This was one of the most interesting experiences of this trip to Vegas. We had never been there on other trips and almost missed it this time, thinking it might not be worth the effort. What a mistake that would have been! We had free tickets that were given out on the street, but the cost is about $6 if you can't get free tickets. We were so impressed we actually made two visits.

If you have any interest in classic cars, you will be amazed by the collection assembled on the fifth floor of the hotel/casino. There are cars that are valued into the millions of dollars. They are in mint condition. They provide a nostalgic glimpse into the past and into the development of the automobile. There are cars that were owned or driven by celebrities such as Tom Jones, Clark Gable, Marilyn Monroe, Elvis, Howard Hughes, and Johnnie Carson, and luxury cars that one has only read about. In addition, there are simpler cars that bring back memories to all of us such as the early VW bugs and vans. This museum is not on the grand scale of Harrah’s back in the ‘70s, but there are more than a hundred cars on display. We loved this place.
