It is a facinating place. LeMay American Car Museum is a must see if you are anywhere near Tacoma. The cars themselves are amazing and the building is a wonder. Interactive exhibits make it even more exciting. Exhibits rotate as I understand it so if you have been there in the past you might want to give it another visit.

Lots of old cars. It doesn't get better than that. They have people that work there, that are very knowledgeable about the the cars in the museum.

One of the best car museums. The LeMay Family Museum is also near Tacoma and is also excellent; especially the open house in the summer.

We live in Olympia and finally decided to visit the Lemay Car Museum. We're not car aficionados or collectors by any means, however, we enjoyed the museum. There are four floors of well-displayed cars, trucks, and motorcycles, a lot of them beautifully restored. The exhibits include very nice historical information and photos. We particularly enjoyed the Route 66 exhibit. There... More

My family and I have recently returned from our 7th trip to Seattle and since our last visit a few years ago they have built this Museum. I can't believe how good it is! From the outside it looks small however what you dont expect is the 4 floors it has inside full of fantastic, exceptional condition vehicles. They have... More

Nice collection of cars that changes from time to time. Also there is a "kids area" for the kids to have some hands on fun. Adults and kids can also play with the Slot cars (extra fee) or race simulators (extra fee). Lots to see here and they also have a grill and of course a gift shop. Nice way... More

Very confusing as this location has only a small number of LeMay collection vehicles. There are around 300 vehicles from other collectors, on display. The real LeMay family collection is at another location.

My husband and I were in the area today, saw the great reviews on Yelp, and decided to check it out. We caught the last day of the Mustang exhibit which was perfect because my husband is a huge fan. The folks that worked in the museum were very friendly and knowledgeable. The building itself is really impressive, the architecture... More

Finally talked the wife in going to the Lemay Car Museum, and neither of us were disappointed. The museum is a large, unique structure next to the Tacoma Dome. Upon arrival, we were required to pay to park. Having dealt with the Tacoma Dome, I'm used to the rip off of city parking so no big thing. Then it's $20.00... More

Really cool cars! There is definitely something for everyone. There is also a media area which is great for older kids and teens with the wiggles. The line can get long though so perhaps call ahead and see if it costs anything or takes reservation. I am bummed though that they didn't have a Rolls Royce in their British section... More
