Very cool collection of cars. They even rotate some of them so you get to see new cars every time you visit. When we were there they had some nice sports cars from the 80's including ferraris and lambos.

You need to first visit the LeMay Family Collection on 152nd and Pacific Ave in Spanaway only 16 miles from ACM. More than 500 cars, trucks, fire engines, outboard motors etc. This is where the museum first got started. Much better experience.

There was a time when cars were great and rolling works of art. You can relive it at this museum. Take your time and enjoy as you experience, at least in your mind, what a trip down the highway used to be like.

What a great place for car enthusiasts and civilians too. It’s always changing, never disappointing. Try the race car simulator. Super fun. My mom, my kids, their kids, also myself, brother and sister all love it. Fun for all ages.

If you love cars this is the place for you. It truly is a nostalgic walk through the past. Cars that we grew up with and those we only heard about. This truly is a gem of a place.

We enjoyed touring the Lemay museum. There were volunteers on every level to answer any questions about the cars. We enjoyed seeing the old cars and the view of Tacoma was amazing.

What a great time! This place is an ever changing experience as this place doesn’t hold half of Lemays collection and even more cars that are just on loan. To start the building is just as impressive as the cars and you get a taste...More
