We enjoyed our visit here and were impressed by the quantity and quality of fine automobiles ranging from antique buggies to current racing platforms. We took tons of pictures and spent a couple of hours checking it all out. Once you are done they have a small cafe/coffee shop on the upper floor where there is a great view of... More

This is a beautiful museum and we all enjoyed our visit. We have also been to the LeMay Museum at Marymount. For our money, Marymount wins the contest but the Tacoma location has great displays and very nice staff.

We were blown away by the expansive collection. This collection specializes in extremely rare, one-of-a-kind cars, some which relate to Washington history. More amazingly, the cars are kept in running condition. The museum is a brand new state-of-the-art facility, as fresh and clean as a new car showroom, with a vintage cars and a new-age collection. This is without question... More

Some really nice examples of classic American cars, but what the heck is a lame Toyota Prius doing in a car museum? If that is the future we might as well shoot ourselves.

My husband visited the museum and said it was excellent. The cars are very well displayed and the museum is extensive. Well worth the visit if you like old cars.

This museum is fabulous, incredibly organized and easy to navigate. The design allows the visitor to experience the most comprehensive car assemblage we have ever experienced. The exterior building is beautiful and unique representing an automotive air scoop. The interior ceiling is made of wood and curved forms about 30 feet in height. It is impecably clean. Anyone, car enthusiast... More

We get a membership for my dad every year and go as a family about 4x per year. There are some of the same beautiful cars there each time but also new exhibits like Corvettes, NASCAR, and VW Bugs. A really unique and fun experience every time.
