LeMay – America’s Car Museum Earns Spot on USA Today’s 10 Best Museums In Seattle List

Newspaper said ACM is one of the “hottest” museums in the Pacific Northwest.

America’s Car Museum (ACM), the largest automotive museum in North America, is continuing to garner awards. The latest come from USA Today, which has named ACM as one of the 10 best museums in the Seattle, Wash., metropolitan area.

“ACM earning a spot on USA Today’s 10 Best Museums in Seattle list shows that our hard work is continuing to pay off in connecting with and captivating our visitors,” said David Madeira, ACM president and CEO. “We see ACM as an enveloping cultural experience instead of just another stationary car museum, constantly rolling out new ideas and exhibits. That’s what sets us apart.”

In November, ACM finished ahead of 74 other finalists to earn the title of “Best Museum in Western Washington,” according to KING 5 NBC. USA Today said ACM is one of the “hottest” museums in the Pacific Northwest. It added that ACM’s signature events, such as June’s “Wheels & Heels Annual Gala” and August’s “Cars & Cigars,” with tastings from Seattle’s El Gaucho restaurant and Montecristo cigars, present an atmosphere “oozing with innovation and indulgence.”

Among USA Today’s annual awards, ACM also took home honors for its family-friendliness, as the four-story, 165,000-square-foot Tacoma, Wash.-based destination is designed to engage younger audiences and the young at heart. ACM’s Family Zone includes a make-and-take art area, pinewood derby track and road trip games from past decades.

“We offer something for everyone – from kids to adults and casual museum-goers to diehard gearheads,” said Madeira. “We’ve built a world-class museum that tells America’s story through the evolution of the automobile, and we’re looking forward to sharing more of that story with audiences in the U.S. and around the world.”
