My brother is quite a car buff so when his birthday rolled around this year I offered to take him up to the LeMay America's Car Museum in Tacoma, Washington. It opened several years ago and I had been anxious to photograph some of the collection so this was a perfect opportunity. We arrived around 10:30 a.m. and parked in... More

Bring your AAA card for a discount. We had a blast! Everyone should definitely go at least once. We enjoyed reading the history of Mr. Le May, he sounded like a real interesting guy.

We had seen the LeMay collection 5-6 ago before this museum was built. If you like cars, you will see some really great cars. The display is a little different inside but it works. Everything is on ramps throughout the museum. ENJOY!

We spent hours at this museum - easy to find as it is right beside the Tacoma Dome - just follow the signs from the freeway - lots of pay parking was available - the building alone is worth the price of admission - this is a collection that one could view often as it changes periodically - even the...

We live in seattle, and decided to take a day trip to visit this museum. My son is 9 and had always loved cars. I am not that into cars, but I go for him. This place exceeded both our expectations. The location is great. We took the light rail. The building is dramatic and impressive architecturally. It's expensive, but... More

This amazing collection is well worth going to even if you are not even into cars. If you like architecture, the building is a really interesting design and the views are quite nice. From a design perspective, the building as well as the individual design of each car, is well worth the visit. I could spent the whole day just... More

So glad we went, well worth the admission plus they offer various discounts. Staff were super friendly and loved the area where the vehicles are taken for restoration and repairs. Amazing variety of vehicles.

Short and sweet, this is a great museum, period. The staff was exceptional. Everyone was more than friendly and just a pleasure to be around. There is stuff for the kids, we enjoyed that and we didn't have kids with us!! The simulators are way too fun. The collection is amazing and done very well. There is nothing bad at... More

Lemay's has a great collection of old and new cars throughout their four floors. They were displaying about 350 cars with a highlight on the 50th anniversary of the Ford Mustang when we went. Try the race driving experience for a really jolting fun time; had no idea it was that hard to control. Plan about 2-3 hours to be... More
