We did not realize this was separate from the other Lemay Museum. Very family friendly with games for kids to play-extra $ though. The architecturally significant building had great views outside of the harbor and of course the cars inside.

If you are in love with cars the way my husband is, this is a fun way to spend an afternoon. You can wander at your own pace through the showroom looking at some of the neatest cars out there. What I liked best is these are real cars not just show cars. Would definitely do this again.

A museum in a setting not typical. Tacoma, Washington. However, this is where Harold LeMay built his business empire and also amassed the world's largest car collection. It was his wish that a museum be built to show some of his collection and this one does not disappoint. A beautiful design, stunning exhibits, interactive displays, driving simulators, family hands on... More

Whenever we travel we look for a car museum, and having read the reviews, we knew we had to visit. Boy, was this a great experience. We were there for almost 6 hours, including enjoying the café for lunch. What an awesome collection of vehicles. Plus, there are some movies you can sit and watch. All ages will enjoy this... More

If you like cars at all, do not miss this museum of more than 300 cars. It is a very well laid out museum with some of the most beautiful cars, especially the pre-1960 models. You enter on the top level of four levels. You then wind your way down three more levels on ramps on one side and back... More

Not only is this an amazing collection of automobiles, the architecture is drop dead gorgeous! I took my 28 year old daughter, who thought she would be bored, but surprisingly LOVED it too. It was the Mustang exhibit. What more can I say? From the year of inception through today, every year, every model, painstakingly restored by loving hands, an... More

Worth every Penney, we stayed 3 hours and really enjoyed the car collection, building and gift shop. If you like cars you can't miss if your within an hours drive. 1907-2015, they have it all. American muscle, early years, 1907-1940's, 50's, great collection of station wagons and smattering of everything else. Careful on the racing simulator, made me a little... More

We had a great time visiting the Lemay Car Museum. The American Muscle car display had just opened on the Showcase Gallery, and there were some really unique vehicles. I am not a "car person" per se, but I still found it all very interesting. The view from the Showcase Gallery is beautiful as well. I was told all of... More

My husband is a hard-core gear head and we had a great time here drooling over the beautiful cars. It was well worth the drive to Tacoma.

We spent a morning at America's Car Museum followed by lunch at the museum cafe. It offers an interesting selection of cars from various eras combined with information about the car and its history. The museum is designed to be very accessible with ramps between display levels. The museum occasionally hosts car displays on a large presentation area in front... More
