Don’t miss “One of America’s Five Greatest Auto Museums.” National Automobile Museum (The Harrah Collection) has a “Wow!” factor not often found in a museum.

See a hardware store here and a movie theater there, accompanied by artifacts from each era. Audio tours in English and Spanish are included with admission price, allowing visitors to meander through street scenes and galleries at their own pace.
