The LeMay Car Museum in Tacoma

Lemay-4176

This afternoon we took a walk over to the LeMay Museum (about a mile from the marina). We've driven past this cool building countless times on the way to and from Seattle. It's just off of I-5 next to the Tacoma Dome, and is definitely worth a visit. The LeMay collection earned a Guinness Book world record of over 3,500 vehicles in the mid-‘90s, and the museum itself houses around 350 cars of all kinds (with rotating exhibits). It's nicely done, and we enjoyed the floor-by-floor stroll through time.
