  • My wife and I have been to a few car museums during our travels, so we have some data points to compare to. The LeMay museum is the most impressive we've seen.. Plan on spending four hours minimum to just walk through all the exhibits - more if you want to stop and admire everything. There are couches with TVs playing educational clips on car restoration (nice when you've been on your feet a couple hours), automotive history, memorabilia, informative murals on the walls, etc. The educational aspect was quite appropriate for non gear heads like ourselves. The staff were available on each level of the facility - friendly and eager to answer questions. It was a good value at $18 a piece, though we didn’t like the idea of paying extra for parking, so parked a few blocks away.
  • Love cars? Go here. Beautiful collection (mostly American cars). Periodic visiting collections are shown. Got questions? Ask any of the staff, they know it all.
  • This place dosent look big, but when you are inside the building goes down 4 stories. It has lots of cars and it has a kid place on one of the levels. If you like cars you will love this place, If you dont love cars you will still like this place! Gift shop was expensive, but had some cool stuff. Great place to spend a rainy day.(Seattle has lots of them)
  • Great collection of cars, presented in a clean and amazing environment. The self guided tour gives you the opportunity to spend as much time as you would like to look at cars as well as some interactive activities that will bring that kid out of you. The food that is served is better than expected, and the staff or volunteers are very knowledgeable and passionate about the museum! Thanks for the experience!
  • So much to see and take in. It is amazing how many different incredible vehicles they have. Add to the vehicles the interactive things that you can do and learn. I spent more than four hours and will need to be back to spend more. It was so much fun! A must do.
