This wonderful museum tells the Packard story in cars. A great opportunity to see cars of old with whitewall tyres and running boards, including an ex Presidential car. Ask to speak to Frank who makes the exhibits come to life!

I don't know how much longer this museum will be in Ft. Lauderdale, but it is a must see. Each of the cars is a real work of art, beautiful in every way, and the collection is fairly large.

At the start of my trip we were doing some sight seeing and had plans for that evening but needed something to do for a few hours. I love Antique cars and this was fascinating and fun!

If antique cars is your passion this place is a must! Frank, our tour guide was amazing and made sure our group was properly informed and entertained. No flash photography and hands off all exhibits. There are lots of photo opportunities but hands off. The museum has over 35 cars, some restored some not along with parts from that era... More

This museum should be renamed. It is a Packard museum. Some great exemplars of the marque, to be sure, but of limited interest even to car buffs.

This museum has the most phenomenal collection of Packard cars dating from 1909 to the 1950s. They have been lovingly restored and are in gleaming condition. What is particularly nice is that each car has a folder in front of it telling the history of the car, the story of its acquisition and with photos showing its restortation. Cabinets around... More

I've visited the Ft Lauderdale Packard Museum twice and I'm still amazed at the size of the collection, as well as the incredible condition of all the Packards.
