How good is this auto museum? My wife is only a half-hearted auto person and she LOVED it. A must-see if you're in the Tacoma area. Tip... in August, they have a Vintage Motorcycle show that is great outdoor show.

I visited today and enjoyed the museum very much. I spent about two hours there but went through relatively quickly. But that time was perfect for me. There's not a detailed info/story card on every car but I'm not interested in every car either. Anyway, the receptionist was friendly and I enjoyed my time there. If you're a classic car... More

Friendly staff, reasonable price and a lot of amazingly well kept cars! Just for this museum alone I would make the drive from Seattle down to Tacoma. If you love cars or design, you should not miss out on this!

If you are a car enthusiast, you will spend several hours here. If you don't this is still a must. These beautifully restored autos will take you back in time and amaze you with cars you've only reqd about. The museum itself is beautifully done and offers beautiful views.

Visited the LeMay American Car Museum in Tacoma and found it just OK. While they do have a large number of cars dating from the early 1900s to modern times, there is no chronological pattern to the autos. If you wanted to follow the development of Cadillac, for example, it would be impossible. There are cars from all years arranged... More

Didn't expect to see so much. Not a big building from the outside, but has 4 floors with 4 rows of cars each. Ramps up and down were easy to negotiate with my 93 yr-old mom's wheelchair. She saw cars that her parents were driving when she was a kid (so did my wife & I, but we're not 93... More

Whether you are a car buff or not this a MUST SEE museum. Cars are constantly being rotated so you can go multiple times and still not see the same vehicles. Very well setup and organized.

My husband and father-in-law were impressed with the size of this collection. As car enthusiasts, they enjoyed the variety of foreign and domestic models. It was fun to have their picture taken in an old touring car!

Really interesting and wonderful to see if you are a car lover! Four floors of all kinds of cars! Race cars and a few motorcyles, too. No Chevrolet Chevelles...
