The LeMay Auto Museum exceeded my expectations. With a surprisingly large collection of all types of vehicle in a beautifully designed setting, I found this far more interesting than anticipated.

Sent my husband and son here for the day while our daughter was getting ready for her wedding. They had so much fun and loved the huge collection.

As advertised the LeMay provides a true American automotive experience - a century worth of memories of the cars we drove and the ones we wished we could
