The LeMay - America's Car Museum is a museum in the city of Tacoma, Washington. A new museum facility adjacent to the Tacoma Dome is opened on June 2, 2012. Most of the cars on display will be donated by the family of Harold LeMay to the museum.
Harold LeMay owned a successful refuse company, Harold LeMay Enterprises, within the Tacoma metro area and amassed the world's largest private car collection. After his death, the city of Tacoma donated 10 acres (4.0 ha) of land next to the Tacoma Dome for the Museum that would contain most of his car collection. At a price of $100 million, the Museum is being called "America's Car Museum." The Museum has 165,000 square feet (1.53 ha) of exhibit space, and contains Harold LeMay's cars along with gift shops, restoration shops, lecture halls, galleries, a banquet room, and café.
