How Did Historic Auto Attractions Get Started?


Wayne tells the story of how a trip to Carson, Nevada started the journey that would become our museum. Wayne has always had a passion for cars and aviation. So when the opportunity arose to purchase a car that once belonged to Howard Hughes, Wayne couldn't pass it up.


Once he had the car, he took to showing his friends and family. The reactions they had ignited a passion for Wayne. One to share his love of history and cars with others. As he grew his personal collection he had the thought to build a museum for the general public.


That was over 20 years ago now. Since then, the museum's collection has grown and they added 50,000 square feet of exhibit space in 2022.


Come enjoy all that the museum has to offer.
