The last time I say the LeMay collection was back in 2006, when it was located at the old boy's school. There were an overwhelming number of cars back then. The current collection is a curated...

Very architecturally artistic design, an amazing and surprising variety of automobiles. You sort of need to pay close attention to which ramps on which ends of each floor you are navigating, and try to incorporate the ones you missed on the way back. The staff were super engaging and knowledgeable, there is also lots of information on the walls and in videos playing throughout the levels. I highly recommend paying for tickets and parking online in advance, alternatively the parking machine appears to be down so get your space number and head inside, it's $5 and very little hassle to get that out of the way. There is a pretty neat gift shop and cafe on the premise as well to enjoy, all well worth the visit in my opinion.
Cool place. Worth the price of admission. I took my 5 year old. He makes so many cars because he has watched the Cars movies. Just about every car in that movie is found here. You go up and down ramps in the middle of the building and see cars throughout all of history. There’s a spot to color a picture of your own car as well as a pinewood derby track at the bottom. One of the other fun exhibits was half of a for mustang that you could turn the wheel. The kids loved it.
