This is the mother of all car museums!
The world’s largest privately owned auto collection—more than 2,000 vehicles and thousands of artifacts—was owned by Harold and Nancy LeMay, and is now displayed in their brand new Harold E. LeMay Museum in Tacoma, Washington.
Opened in June 2012, The LeMay “America’s Car Museum®” is a large, technologically advanced, interactive automotive museum and educational center that showcases the cultural impact of cars, motorcycles and trucks on our uniquely American way of life.
“Everybody remembers their first car, family driving vacations, a sports car they fell in love with as a teenager,” says ACM 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.”
The ACM campus includes the 165,000-sq.-ft. museum and a 3.5-acre show field.
