Meet at main entrance at 1:00. I look like my photo with a bright yellow scarf. Museums always present a challenge in staying together as a group, so flexibility is key. We’ll meet again at the museum café at 3:00. If anyone wants to carpool, let me know - I’m open as long as I know you.
LeMay Car Museum spotlights America’s love affair with the automobile. Featuring a nine-acre campus – with a four-story museum as the centerpiece – situated atop Tacoma, 30 minutes south of Seattle and in the shadow of Mt. Rainier, is one of the world’s largest auto museums.
LeMay is designed to preserve history and celebrate the world’s automotive culture. The spacious facility houses up to 350 cars, trucks and motorcycles from private owners, corporations and the LeMay collection, which amassed a Guinness Book record of more than 3,500 vehicles in the mid-‘90s.
“Everybody remembers their first car, family driving vacations, a sports car they fell in love with as a teenager,” says CEO David Madeira. “Personal experiences with cars are at the heart of the American experience, and we’re going to showcase more than a century of automotive lifestyle and history as well as the future of transportation.”
