Marymount Event Center (Tacoma)

Tacoma

Our favorite venue! A gun sale AND a premier car museum? Home of the largest automobile collection in the Northwest! Originally built in the 1920s, it features cement-set stained glass panels, fresco paintings, and original pipe organ. Everything here is remarkable from the lush grounds to the stately buildings and an unparalleled collection of all things automotive. A tour of this venue is a lesson in history like no other and it is constantly changing so you want to visit often! They clear a few rooms in the museum for our gun sale, 

but there are still plenty of cars and memorabilia    everywhere you look. The sheer volume, variety, and quality of the Lemay Family Collection here is hard to put into words. The LeMay’s and their staff are the friendliest and most knowledgeable you’ll ever meet! Don’t even think about local attractions- you will want to spend all your time here.

Washington State History Museum

Learn about the rich culture of Native Americans, the arrival of the earliest European and American Explorers, Lewis and Clark as well as topics like the development of Seattle and the Klondike Goldrush. While the history of Washington State is short when compared to Massachusetts, Virginia, etc. it is fascinating. The Washington State History Museum will guide you through these important eras as well as many others. It is well worth the visit. Take some time out of your day and go see.
