The National Automobile Museum, the Harrah Collection, in downtown Reno, Nevada will celebrate the 100th Anniversary of Bill Harrah’s birth with a special exhibit telling the story of this legendary collector and gaming industry pioneer.
Bill Harrah was the founder of the world-famous Harrah’s Automobile Collection, which opened to the public in 1962 and grew to the largest, most significant collection of its time.
Discover Harrah’s passion for automobiles, his mission and the unfortunate turn of events that led to the disbursement of most of his collection. Learn about the public outcry that saved some of the best automobiles and the movement that created the National Automobile Museum (The Harrah Collection).
The film, the Bill Harrah Story, which details the man and his love for the automobile, is also included with the price of admission.
