As I fully expected to be a bit bored at the car museum, I was pleasantly surprised to find a lot of historical info regarding different eras while touring the LeMay car museum. The tidbits of data I picked up along the way were well worth the admission price. That in itself made for a fun outing.

Having visited dozens of car museums in Europe as well as the U.S., I can say that this is one of the better ones. Not the best mind you, but far better than most. Their gift shop is also better than most, with more adult- oriented auto gifts than most. Plan to append at least 2 hours or more. The cafe was disappointing, but I can overlook that. This is not intended to be a restaurant review.

If you like cars, then this is for you. If is heavily focused on American cars and that was perfect for me. It is an eclectic collection but worth the visit.

The amount of cars, they have, is incredible. There is a lot to see & learn about how cars have changed throughout the years. My 70 year old father & my husband both really enjoyed it. I'm not really into cars but still loved looking at the beautiful classics. Go all the way down to the 4th floor to have some photo fun with the only car you're allowed to touch & get on.
