Ample parking on site so don't park nearby thinking you won't find parking. There is a charge for parking but it is reasonable for the location. Car displays were great and myself and a friend had a great time viewing all the cars, trucks, motorcycles, etc.. When we were ready to go we decided to try the restaurant upstairs. Bad... More

We took my father for Fathers Day. I had concerns as he has difficulty walking. I even rented a wheel chair. The layout made it easy for him to get around. He chose to not use the chair at all. My father is a car buff I new he would love it but I wasn't sure about my wife and... More

Tee museum is about cars - and there are a lot of them. Beautifully arranged, it was even fun for someone who can usually just say - it was red, or a station wagon, or something else very basic. Three generations went together, and everyone enjoyed it.

This museum is a must see! There is every imaginable vehicle there complete with it's history. It is interesting to both car enthusiasts and history enthusiasts. It is a very large display, so be sure to wear your walking shoes. It was fun seeing cars that brought so many memories flooding back from my youth.

Great displays of autos from the entire history -- they routinely bring in exhibits for a single type of vehicle -- currently F-series pickups -- previously it was Mustangs, VW's, Race Cars, etc

Just went for the first time this past weekend. I can hardly believe we have such amazing museums in our backyard. Beautiful cars, great info about the era's and history of cars, spectacular view of the city of Tacoma, easy location just off the freeway with lots of great restaurants in the downtown area to choose from.

Hundreds of cars from every era to peruse at your leisure in a huge, open museum with 4 floors. There's even a cafe, run by the Pacific Grill. Activities as well, bring the kids!

18 bucks per adult and 5 bucks to park in their lot. And you have to pay it or "find parking in town" and walk. Nice cars but everything is way overpriced.
