Wanted to see this place again after almost a decade. An amazing place with people there that really care about your visit. Hard to not think of this as the highlight of any trip. Not sure if I will be back, I hope so! Nice, unique gifts in the gift center so we bought stuff there, too. Great place. We... More

A very interesting museum with plenty of space for viewing exhibits and with the unusual ramp system inside from one floor to the next makes it very accessible for wheelchair users. Fantastic selection of cars and an interactive area for children Fun having free pic taken inside 1923 Buick. On one level NASCAR and F1 simulators which for $8.00 was... More

Cars - Cars - Cars - Motorbikes and gas pumps. This is a tremendous afternoon or morning point for tourists, like we were in Washington. Fully restored and unique vehicles, others in excellent used conditions and others needing much love and attention. There are just to many vehicles for the close viewing that many are stores in racks above other... More

Took my business clients who were attending a conference in Tacoma to this place for a little diversion between conference dates. The men and the women were just having a blast as they toured the many cars on display in various warehouses. The stories they told about their experiences in similar cars were entertaining and pleasant memories. Wish we could... More

If you've been to ACM then you owe it to yourself to see Lemay family collection. Went for the bike week show but thoroughly enjoyed the rest of the museum. Not so much museum but warehouse but still pretty awesome. What is amazing is that there is over a 1000 cars still in various warehouses thru out Tacoma. Just a... More

We moved to Tacoma recently, and saw The Lemay Museum advertised a lot of places, but it was in downtown and we didn't want to leave the dog at home to spend a few hours there so we hadn't visited yet. Then one day we were out driving and saw a sign in what looked like a park for the... More

My beau and I visited the LeMay Museum collection after I purchased an online deal. I initially thought the deal was for the LeMay Car Museum, which is a totally different animal. This collection is the personal collection of the family, set on many acres of what was once a Catholic school. The setting is spectacular, surrounded by trees. The... More

Zoom through the years and look for your first car and or maybe your grandfathers! Need more time to explore and see all that there is to see.

We took our 2 year old and he was so excited since he loves any kind of vehicle. The simulator looks really cool. We spent 3 hours there but we honestly could have spent longer. The cafe has good affordable food. Take a stroller for little ones. This place reminded me of my Dad. He loved cars. Great place for... More

Just like a previous reviewer, we got a Groupon thinking it was for the other place on the freeway. Since it was no good there, we bought tickets anyway and enjoyed ourselves. Flash forward a year and a half and our visitors return wanting to try the Marymount location. Again, our expired Groupon was accepted. this is a huge collection... More
