The National Automobile Museum (The Harrah’s Car Collection) has been recognized as “One of America’s Top Ten Automobile Museums.”
Our Reno, NV auto museum is located along the banks of the Truckee River, at the corner of Lake and Mills Streets and showcases more than 200 remarkable automobiles in 100,000 square feet. The museum has many things to do in Reno, Nevada, featuring theatre presentations, galleries, exhibits, vibrant street scenes, and artifacts that bring displays to life. Not to mention a souvenir museum store! If you’re looking for venues in Reno, our antique car museum is a dynamic and popular venue for special events as intimate as 60 and as large as 1,200 guests. The museum is also home to the top Reno attractions like the Nevada Space Center and the Challenger Learning Center of Northern Nevada.
During an evening night on August 1, 1986, the Reno-Sparks Convention Center was bursting at the seams with hundreds of revelers who were partying, cheering and pushing to be let in to a first-time event of a magnitude yet to be realized. Inside, 10,000 spectators were massed together in anticipation of seeing and hearing a live event of the Righteous Brothers, Wolfman Jack, and Jan & Dean! It was that night when nostalgia was unleashed among an audience who excitedly relived their childhood years of the 50’s and 60’s- a time of innocence, prosperity, cars and the birth of Rock and Roll. The weather was HOT, the month of AUGUST was right, therefore, HOT AUGUST NIGHTS was born!
The aim of Hot August Nights was to fill a void in tourism in Reno during the month of August and to raise money for local charities. The first concert was held in the Convention Center parking lot where most hadn’t danced to “that” music, to a live band, under the stars, since high school. The memories flooded back and so did the desire for more! The first year of Hot August Nights was more of a nostalgia event than a car event. But it was the car parade that was the highlight of the Event for the participants and the crowds who thronged Virginia Street. The car owners were thrilled to show off their cars. They’d never had so many people “oohing and aahing” over their “works of art”. It was a proud moment for classic car owners.
