Save the date! LeMay, America's Car Museum, will hold its grand opening May 19, 2012. The new museum is a much anticipated addition to downtown Tacoma.

The museum will be the third-largest automotive museum in the world and largest in the country. Three of the property's nine acres will be the show field for outdoor car shows. 

 
There will be three main exhibit halls: the Main Gallery (Harold LeMay's collection), the AAA Heritage Road Collection (rotates every three to four months) and End Galleries (permanent exhibit, event space, library and cafe). There will also be a hands-on section for children.
 
Now through May 12, car enthusiasts can still admire the LeMay Family Collection Foundation at the Marymount Academy. Learn More
