This place was amazing. It was like walking back in time. The history, the cars, and the people who work there are all amazing. You could hear the pride and honor pouring from them as they showed us around. I will be coming back to see the decorations for Christmas. If you like history and /or old time cars you... More

I'm not really into old cars, so this wasn't my favorite place. I did enjoy the kiss mobile out front of the building, and the model train set room. I.liked pushing the buttons and watching the stuff move.

This museum has a great collection of pristine Packards and other car memorabilia. Depending upon your interest, it can take anywhere from 1 hour to several hours to tour this museum. We didn't have a tour narrator, so we wandered around for about 75 minutes. This place will make car collectors drool.

Had a great time with my 18 year old son. He really enjoyed all the old Packards and all the old nostalgia the museum offered. We had the privilege to meet the owners wife she was a true peach of a person and told us she built the museum so kids like my son could enjoy our heratige. Thank you... More

If you like old cars, from the sixties and older it is a fun place to walk around and see what our parents and grandparents owned. A fun afternoon.

This is a fine collection of beautifully restored antique autos. You can get up close and personal to a vast array of "tin lizzies." Definitely worth a look

They are missing something, hope you don’t. There is a fee/donation to see it, $10 for me. This is a collection of... More
