Overall, not bad when you don't have a car show you can go to. I'm still very confused though. Why is there a Prius on display? I can understand the Telsa Roadster, which is quite rare and exotic. But I can't swing a dead hippie without hitting a Prius on the roads. And why is one of the cars in... More

My parents passed away and family does get together as much these days, so, I thought it would be nice to have my four brothers do something they all enjoy--old cars! All, even though older, really enjoyed LeMay. They said there was a lot of walking and didn't see it all, but they enjoyed everything this saw. Buying four tickets... More

I took my stepson to the Museum on his recent visit. He is not much of a car fan, but even he was blown away by the collection. The breadth and depth of automotive history that is shown in this museum's unmatched by anything I have been to before. Even if you are not a car guy, I encourage you... More

Well done museum with beautiful cars, even if you're not a "car person." Probably not great for little children since there is a lot you can't touch.

LeMay's collection is much more than cars. It tells the story of automobiles, and how they have become part of who we are. This display is not stagnant, there are always new displays, and exhibits. For the savvy visitor, check out the other collection at Marymount, and the family home. They are open to the public, but check for dates... More

I have watched this museum being built and could only wonder how it would turn out. It is spectacular. The cars are in perfect condition. To be able to see and touch these beautiful works of art on wheels is a great experience. Give yourself lots of time and bring a camera. The onsite café is good and offers a... More

Car lovers of all ages will enjoy this gorgeous museum. We happened to visit on a sunny day and the view from the deck was spectacular. There is an area to try race simulators (for a fee) and free toy car races and other car-related activities. The gift store is great, I found a great book and could have spent... More

I admit to being a big car fan but my test for a good attraction is what my wife thinks. She is not a car person but she loved the presentation and the layout of the place as well as the displays that change from time to time. There is much to see and we took advantage of the snack... More
