Our group was a mix of ages, from 20's through 60's. Some were car aficionados and some just along for the visit. We all enjoyed our day walking through the many levels and the interactive displays liven up our visit. The most fascinating thing about our visit to LeMay's had nothing to do with the cars, but had to do... More

What more could be said about one of the finest collectible car museums in the U.S.? Definitely a stopping place on a tour of the city for our guests!

The pavement is about as interesting as the cars. If you are not completely in love with classic cars prior to going you will have wished you had stayed at home and dusted the miniblinds for your afternoons entertainment. Art museums, gardens, even how to displays have their value. This car museum is a waste of space. They could have... More

We're up in area for concert. It was easy to find. If you enjoy cars this a good museum. Allow ample time as it has around 300 cars.

Great to see cars we remembered from our youth and many more from the early years of automobiles. The setting is wonderful, the docents are friendly and very knowledgeable. We had a great time!

One can easily spend all day here. I came with a friend, father-in-law, and one of our grown sons, and it was a great multi-generational experience. Be prepared to walk a lot. Rotating special exhibits add variety to the museum. Great for history buffs and auto lovers alike. Nice blend of foreign cars and exotics among the collection as well.... More

This is a really fun place to visit. Lots of beautiful, classic and unusual autos to see. I visited in the summer time and they had the motorcycle attraction on the grounds outside. It was a great day!

The LeMay Car Museum is much bigger than it looks. I was amazed at the variety and condition of cars. There are cars from every decade and by nearly all of the makers. They are in a wide variety of condition. The museum itself is new and modern. Cars and displays are nicely presented and they have inter-active racing simulators.... More
