This was a fun car collection that's found in an old Military Boys school. It was fun to walk through the campus of the school and see cars from the past 100 years. We had a tour guide that took us through the last two buildings. He was very knowledgeable about all the cars in the collection and had some... More

The LeMay museum, located on what was a military school campus owned by nuns, run by military teachers, now houses the amazing personal collection of the Lemay family. It is possible to spend several hours here and still feel you have more to look at, admire, and recollect memories from years these beauties were on the roads. It is well... More

I live less than 15 miles from this excellent museum, yet knew very little about it and had never visited it until last week. I was amazed at how much fun it was even to somebody like myself who isn't a car aficionado. This is a huge collection in three buildings of a former boys academy. All the cars you'd... More

I was amazed at the amount of vehicles at the museum. Wish I had more time to visit it. Will have to go back again. Some vehicles you will not find at any other auto museum.

It's a lot of fun to walk through and look at all these old vehicles and how vehicles have changed over the years. It's fun to trigger those old memories when walking through.

We sold a car at their auction. Unfortunately the turnout was small because of rain. The grounds are beautiful, home to a Catholic boys school, was a one time military academy also. The cars are displayed under a shed room, some in the 'gymnasium, and rows of three tiers in a metal building. LOTS of cars, motorcycles, buses, trucks... European,... More

We visited the LeMay Museum at Marymount on Wednesday, October 12 with the Primetimers of Chehalis First Baptist Church. We were given a guided tour, first of the Red Building with several amazing exhibits. The hosts were so gracious and even set up tables where we could eat our sack lunches. After lunch, our group was divided into two groups... More

If you have seen the LeMay Museum and liked it, be sure to also visit the Family Collection. It is nothing short of amazing. The tour you get (incluided in the price of the museum) is done by people that know A LOT about these cars and is very interesting. This is a most see for car and design lovers!
