This museum has everything that car lovers all over the world would enjoy. Not only are there four levels of fantastic cars, but a little known piece of history is told about many of them. There is a great deal of walking that is required, so I would not recommend this for people with mobility problems, but other than that,... More

There are so many cars, in no particular order, or condition! Maybe too crowded - poor lighting in places - hard to take good photos.

We didn't even know about this place until we went to the main car museum recently. This is AMAZING!!!!! It's definitely not as easy to view many of the cars here because of their placement, but what an incredible collection!

This place is amazing.....Can't believe I have lived in the Northwest and never heard of this car collection. What I was really amazed at was all the old vintage fuel pumps in the collection as well as so off beat collections like outboard motors for boats fire hose nozzles some doll and old toy cars. Plenty of things too see... More

We visited the American Car Museum in Tacoma last year which houses a small number of cars from the famous Le Mays collection. However, we missed out on the "mother lode". If you are an old car lover, Harold Le Mays has a huge car collection at the Marymount Estate. It is also in Tacoma and not far from the... More

Beyond the estranged/broken relationship between the museum by I-5 and the Tacoma Dome and this one -- this is the one to visit. This is where it all began, and is still there. The sheer amount of autos is amazing. It will not be as polished as Blackhawk or the Peterson museums in California, but for a private collection built... More

A must see! It is three stories but has sloped ramps connecting all floors - wheel chair friendly. There is a fast eat restaurant. Good pay parking location.

I am not much of a car guy so I didn't tour the LeMay Museum until I had a friend visit who is a car guy. Turns out that I really enjoyed myself!

First visit to this museum. Tour guide was very good, amazing collections of many things, mostly auto, friendly staff, affordable. Location easy to find. Met owner, lovely lady. If you visit both LeMay museums you get a combined ticket, more affordable.
