Our entire family loved the museum. It was great to see my son get overwhelmed with all of the cars including Mustangs and DeLorians. This is a great stop for even the non-car buff, such as me, out there as there is so much history shown through our automobile past.

My guy, his mom, myself, his sister, her son and girlfriend were there in 12/2012. It is a large American car collection of beautifully restored cars and trucks. There was a simulated car racing and a helicopter ride. Many of the cars were from the 1930's and 1940's. It is an experience for all ages who enjoy looking at cars... More

We've been members of the LeMay car museum since its founding. It's fun for families and individuals. This is not only a seeing museum but one that is active in the car loving crowd with events not only in the Puget Sound area but in different venues with their touring. We have visited the museum several times and enjoyed the... More

We spent most of the afternoon in the museum with a very informative tour guide. This place has all kinds of cars and trucks, and some motorcycles as well. The cars are beautiful, and they have good displays about Route 66, NASCAR racing, and alternative energy cars. There is a pinewood derby track where you can race cars and a... More

It just keeps going! Wonderful facility, excellent- top notch! Collection is fascinating, and they do a nice job rotating the primary exhibits. Great spot for families, rainy days, sunny days, any day. Something for everyone to connect with! You will inevitably have a nostalgic journey through the museum.

If you're into historical cars, this is the place. If you're into cars with local history, this is the place. And if you just like to look at pretty shiny things, this is also the place. What a fantastic collection, with fun stuff for kids and adults alike.

This is a great museum, even if you aren't a huge car person. My hubby and I didn't think we were car people until we decided to visit this museum recently on a family trip. WOW! What a cross section and history of the automobile! It was amazing to walk through all the variety of cars...they just kept going and... More

A great museum, configured so that you can traverse the four floors on an inclined ramp without using stairs or elevators. A great collection of vintage automobiles, as well as a few attractions that will keep children of all ages amused. Store has tempting items, but restaurant leaves a lot to be desired. Ample parking for a very reasonable fee... More

We stumbled across this museum completely by accident. We were in Tacoma to do to the Glass Museum and saw this as we drove by. My husband is a huge car fan (especially old cars) and he was in heaven. The building is beautiful. The layout is good. It requires a lot of walking but there are slight slopes that... More

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
