I'm not a huge car fan but I enjoyed looking at the variety here. It did not smell like a closeted garage. I would have like to see more accompanying displays like what clothes would have been worn while riding in certain cars or pictures of the cars from the periods.

This place is huge. We walked and walked, got our pictures taken in an antique car and did slot car races. The main thing is the several floors of old and sometimes gorgeous American cars! I learned a bit of car history, but mainly just mindlessly enjoyed the sights. A car enthusiasts dream!

Lots of very well cared for vintage cars. $6 parking, $14 admit for senior. It was easy to walk through efficiently, but I would have liked to have been able to get closer to some cars that were behind ropes.

So many cars, so little time! This place blew us both away - VERY nice! Café is overpriced, though, and be aware : there is a LOT of walking.

If you have any interest in automobiles, the LeMay is a must see. There are many diverse collections from classics, to American muscle, to electric etc. It's all here under one roof in a beautiful new building. It's a keeper.

My brother is quite a car buff so when his birthday rolled around this year I offered to take him up to the LeMay America's Car Museum in Tacoma, Washington. It opened several years ago and I had been anxious to photograph some of the collection so this was a perfect opportunity. We arrived around 10:30 a.m. and parked in... More

Bring your AAA card for a discount. We had a blast! Everyone should definitely go at least once. We enjoyed reading the history of Mr. Le May, he sounded like a real interesting guy.

We had seen the LeMay collection 5-6 ago before this museum was built. If you like cars, you will see some really great cars. The display is a little different inside but it works. Everything is on ramps throughout the museum. ENJOY!

We spent hours at this museum - easy to find as it is right beside the Tacoma Dome - just follow the signs from the freeway - lots of pay parking was available - the building alone is worth the price of admission - this is a collection that one could view often as it changes periodically - even the...

We live in seattle, and decided to take a day trip to visit this museum. My son is 9 and had always loved cars. I am not that into cars, but I go for him. This place exceeded both our expectations. The location is great. We took the light rail. The building is dramatic and impressive architecturally. It's expensive, but... More
