We had a wonderful docent tour guide who took us on a wonderful odyssey in exploring hundreds of cars and other motorized vehicles beautifully restored or just collected. He treated us to specific car history's and technical information with such knowledge and enthusiasm! The historical significance of this museum is immeasurable. It's not just about cars either. There are collections... More

Until you see this incredible collection of about 3000 cars, trucks and other vehicles, its hard to imagine that anyone could possibly amass such a collection of vehicles. It is quite overwhelming. However, if Packard is one of your favorite marks, this is the place to go. There is an abundance of excellent examples of them here. We found the... More

Our family visited LeMay car museum at Marymount this week. It was a great experience. Driving east from Tacoma about 20 minutes, you'd never think there was a car museum that is in the Guiness Book of World Records. There's so many cars to see, some of them are super rare. I'd suggest you allow for at last a couple... More

I had a great time here even though I am not the biggest car fan in the world. Lots of antique and classic cars as well as some newer high end cars. They have a restaurant upstairs...not great, but it fits the atmosphere.

Wonderful display of vintage vehicles. Cars, trucks, motorcycles, fire trucks, even a boat! There is both a self-guided section, then areas where well-informed docents walk with you. A must see for car enthusiasts, but also very enjoyable for anyone.

It is hard to describe a wonderful collection of the classics, without sounding redundant...so I'll leave it to you to put it down on paper. One of the best on the planet.

We spent a couple hours looking at the cars there. So many to see. The person doing the tour did a great job. I used a Groupon to save a little money.

If you don't mind walking, this car exhibit is almost better than the Lemay exhibit near the Tacoma Dome. We appreciated having tour guides available to share stories about the various vehicles.

I took my grandchildren here several months after visiting the new car museum on I5. I was delighted when they told me they liked it even more than the beautiful new museum. The docent catered to my grandsons...answering all their questions and going out of his way to show them the vehicles they were most interested in. Wow, I was... More

Even if you aren't a car person, this place is amazeballs. The first building is self-tour and you can totally stick your head through the car windows to appreciate the interiors. The second building is a guided tour and it's chock full of awesome cars, on racks 3 cars high. Then the third building, also viewed via guided tour, is... More
