A great display of Packards from 1909 to 1958...not for the perfectionist, but for people who enjoy old and interesting cars from the maker of some of America's finest. Cheap, too! You can spend an hour or several, depending on your interest.

Highly Recommended! My wife and I really enjoyed this museum full of cars and stuff other than cars, she said she wishes we had more time to see everything in this museum. Out of all the things we did in Ft Lauderdale, this was the highlight of our trip. Only thing I would recommend is getting there early because it... More

This museum is open 6 days a week-closed Sundays. Arthur Stone's collection... More

We've lived in Broward County for over 35 years and never visited this museum until recently. We'll be sure to go back soon. The museum is made up of the private collection of Arthur Stone, who was a local florist. The collection of Packards and other automobile parts and memoribilia is incredible. We had out-of-town visitors and were looking for... More

The Ft. Lauderdale Antique Car Museum is a non-profit foundation for education. Arthur O. Stone not only loved quality cars, but he had a passion for showing the world what American craftsmanship meant. Packards were some of the finest cars ever made. I've lived and owned property in Ft. Lauderdale for 14-years and just recently made my first visit to... More

Nostalgia down on SW1 Ave. They have at least 25 classic antique cars. Most Classics are Packards, but a couple of other luxury cars. My two favorites, 1909 Packard model 18 speed str., and 1931 Packard model 845 convertible sedan. The staff was very knowledgeable. The museum was spotless, designed to look like a 1920's car showroom. Cost $16.
