The cars are awesome, staff is friendly, and it is something so different and unique. I am a local, and was looking for things to do on a rainy Saturday. This was a pleasant suprise :)

However, it was very interesting following the history of this car, how it became the "Rolls Royce of the United States" during the 1920's, how it was affected by the Great Depression (it started making less luxurious cars, weakening their brand), and how it finally ended...

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

They represent functional vehicles such as a firetruck, a hearse, and sleek first class luxury vehicles. Over 40 vehicles in all. There is memorabilia and a film lasting about 20 minutes. 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

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
