Spent several hours visiting hundreds of exhibits and every vehicle imaginable except they didn't have a GTO. Thinking that I could ask staff to look it up on the computer and they said the inventory list is old and out of date. Bummer! Overall it was a great visit and we had a nice lunch in their cafe.

Awesome collection by a guy who wanted one of everything, even station wagons, beautifully displayed. Don't limit yourself: allow at least two hours--you'll probably want to spend even more time but two hours is a must to walk-and-gawk the entire museum.

Extremely interesting collection of automobile of all kinds plus some motorcycles. The older you are the more you can appreciate the collection, but good for all ages. Allow at least 2 hours. Before you get back on the highway, be sure and check out the great views available from Point Defiance Park, only a couple of miles away on the... More

Very easy to see the displays and a open feeling. Need better signs to direct you to the café. Good x section of samples and enjoyed the info on Northwest contributors.

Although it looks like a slug with an armadillo hide, Its is well laid out, just keep to the right and you will see all the cars featured. Mustangs were the big feature this year, being the 50th anniversary. Such a nostalgic walk! The 30's and 40's cars are my favorites, I got my fill! It takes about 2 hours... More

This museum runs under two confusing names: America's Car Museum and LeMay - American's Car Museum. And there is a different LeMay car collection elsewhere in Tacoma. Two separate places! America's Car Museum (ACM) is located in the elbow of I-5 and I-705. Get off I-705 immediately on 26th Street. Turn right, go to D Street, and turn right again.... More

This is a must see in Tacoma, WA. There is an outstanding collection of vintage cars that are displayed nicely on many levels. There are interactive things to do and a game area. Nice food service, and the facility holds many special events and displays of classic cars. I especially enjoyed seeing my first car a 54 Chevrolet convertible and... More

Visited the LeMay car museum with friends on a rainy day, enjoyed the several floors of classic cars, nice to see a great timeline about Route 66 on one level. The main floor appears to be slanted as you enter, think you are going uphill. We talked to one of the staff, he said the floor actually is flat. Tested... More

For autophiles, this is an awesome place to visit. Great variety of cars and motorcycles here. Displayed very well, with a great set up for interaction with visitors. I went here with my 5 and 3 year old grandsons and had a fantastic time. Make sure to try your hand at the NASCAR simulator!
