I've gone a couple of times and never get tired of seeing this beautiful collection and talking to the volunteers. This is not the one next to the Tacoma Dome but is not far from there. This has a more family feel to it than that one.

(This review is actually for this collection, not the America's Car Museum.) An impressive collection from all eras; mainly American, but also some British cars. Most are in really good original condition or seemed to be accurately restored. We had a really knowledgeable tour guide who was able to talk cars with the gear heads but also had anecdotes for the rest of us. One building has "shelves" of cars, three high, so you can only see the headlights, grilles, and bumpers, but there's not a shortage of other interesting cars on the ground.

Forget the earlier 'try a sandwich'. This place is the best auto museum I've ever seen. 5 Deusenbergs, at least a dozen Ferrari's, even 4 Studebakers. And the best of the whole showroom - a 1983 Dodge Station Wagon, complete with fake wood panelling (no kidding, this is as awesome as it is out-of-place). My favorite is the REO ST5 on the main showroom floor; but Fatty Arbuckle's Pierce Arrow is also a beauty. Don't miss the Rolls' that were built in the US! - there is a gorgeous 1930 'tobacco brown' RR limo that was made for a leaf magnate. The kicker: When I walked in, Harold LeMay was taking pictures of his cars for a new brochure. We had a 15 minute conversation about Ransom Olds and his REO ST5. Outstanding museum where everyone is nice and wants you to have a good time. An absolute 'must see' for the pacific northwest.

I was there a few days ago, and the weather was rainier than ever I have seen in the pas t few years.But the museum is amazing. I am not a picky person, there are more cars, then space could allow. I think it was worth the money to visit. I was there also, to take pictures, and a cell phone camera will not do there. There are so many cars there, and I was there for about four hours, it was not enough time to look at all of the cars, and I was also tired, and left. But it is a really nice place, and people who work there, are very friendly and helpful. The people know their cars, the older tour guides do. There is a lot of history, and the cars are in different bays. It is cold in some of the places, and having an umbrella in the car and a coat is appropriate. I would recommend this place.

As a person who knows little about cars, I was hoping to learn a lot when I visited the museum. However, from my perspective, the museum lacked a curatorial cohesive theme. For example, a car from 1906 would be parked next to a car from 1965 and then that car would be parked next a car from 1942. It was hard to get a sense of how these cars fit into the American landscape given the jumbled nature of the displays. A few of the displays were specific in theme, and those were great. I think the worst aspect of the museum was the theater. The theater could have been used to bridge the gap that the display space lacked: educating patrons on the history of cars, the role(s) of specific cars/manufacturers, etc. Rather, the movie in the theater did nothing but glorify the museum and the LeMay family. I think it's great you get to take your cars to Italy every year, but that's not why I came to the museum. The cameo shot of the director of the museum laughing was a bit much. Lastly, I thought some of the items in the gift shop were tacky, at best. T-Shirts for men with hot girls on them might be part of car culture, but I would expect a museum to take a more thoughtful approach.
