Car buffs and none will appreciate this collection of cars, trucks and motorcycles. It's a beautiful setting, well thought out exhibit and our catered dinner on the site was nice. Car buffs, in particular will love this place.

I have been to many car museums but this was the very best. East to find and parking was very easy. They have 4 stories of amazing cars. I went with a group of 15 people and everyone really enjoyed themselves. If you get a chance to go you will have a lot of fun.

Great parking to a really wonderful venue. Yes everything costs but oh the cars! I spent 4 hours walking up and down the rows of cars from my childhood, my fathers childhood and my grandfathers world. There was everything for every taste in automobiles. With scooters and motorcycles thrown in. The vehicles change so I signed up for email to... More

The days when families spent long hours in cars looking out the windows and seeing the sights as they sped across the country are mostly gone. But the Lemay Car Museum in Tacoma, WA has recaptured the joy of those days with the addition of a collection of vintage station wagons to its Route 66 exhibit. A trip to the... More

This a wonderful place for car lovers. The past, present, and future come to life at this car museum. A great place for families as there is a race car simulator and a mini track for racing. Loved it!

Our entire family loved the museum. It was great to see my son get overwhelmed with all of the cars including Mustangs and DeLorians. This is a great stop for even the non-car buff, such as me, out there as there is so much history shown through our automobile past.

My guy, his mom, myself, his sister, her son and girlfriend were there in 12/2012. It is a large American car collection of beautifully restored cars and trucks. There was a simulated car racing and a helicopter ride. Many of the cars were from the 1930's and 1940's. It is an experience for all ages who enjoy looking at cars... More

We've been members of the LeMay car museum since its founding. It's fun for families and individuals. This is not only a seeing museum but one that is active in the car loving crowd with events not only in the Puget Sound area but in different venues with their touring. We have visited the museum several times and enjoyed the... More

We spent most of the afternoon in the museum with a very informative tour guide. This place has all kinds of cars and trucks, and some motorcycles as well. The cars are beautiful, and they have good displays about Route 66, NASCAR racing, and alternative energy cars. There is a pinewood derby track where you can race cars and a... More

It just keeps going! Wonderful facility, excellent- top notch! Collection is fascinating, and they do a nice job rotating the primary exhibits. Great spot for families, rainy days, sunny days, any day. Something for everyone to connect with! You will inevitably have a nostalgic journey through the museum.
