“A must see-over 400 vehicles”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

Went to LeMay auto Museum in Spanaway WA. WOW what a place. Over 500 vehicles. Admission is cheap and includes a guided tour. Tour takes you thru many buildings and they explain the history of the vehicles and how they obtained some of them. We spent 3 hours and could of stayed longer. clasic and antique cars, trucks, buses, motorcycles and other items. Lots of free parking. Easy to find. Great gift shop as well. If you haven't been you should not miss going to see this location. Far better than the new auto museum in downtown Tacoma.

“Wonderful Museum!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

This is the original LeMay automobile museum and has a wonderful history. Lots of vehicles .. more than you can imagine! Fun to hear the history of Mr. LeMay's collecting habits. Definitely worth a visit.

“Car Lover's Dream”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2012

Even avid car lover's will be overwhelmed by the sheer numbers of vehicles here. The staff is very friendly and the volunteers who serve as guides are the best. Andy gave us a personal tour of over 500 cars and trucks. He loaded us up with all kinds of information we would never have known on our own. We enjoyed it very much and hope to go back.

“A great 3 hour tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2012

Had a great 3+ hour tour of the LeMay collection.
Our guide was very informative and knew the history behind most of the vehicles we saw. Having a guide really makes the collection more interesting than just walking past aisles of vehicles on your own.

I thought the tour was an excellent value.

“Gear Heads Delight!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2012

With over 500 automobiles to see, auto enthusiasts can overdose on wheels, engines, and all of that "car stuff". But, there is much more to this almost American History museum. Radio, television and movie memorabilia in great quantities. Literally, something for everyone. But be warned - lots of walking. Wear comfortable shoes and allow at least 3 hours. The volunteer guide was incredible, too. Extremely entertaining and knowledgeable.
