I was there for a photography class... and I'm also a fan of the Packard car. They have models going back to 1909 and through the Studebaker Hawk (the last of the line). Very nice staff and the cars/trucks and memorabilia are first rate. You'd have to go to the Ford museum to do better. All this from a guy... More

Was a great educational travel through time looking at these antique cars. Wasn't just cars, but also antique car parts and accessories (so many cigarette lighters). ha Only huge negative was the uncomfortable seats while watching this TV documentary, was 1 hour long! Overall a good 2-3 hours of looking around. Happy my girlfriend recommended visiting this place. She's always... More

A special Thank you to the gentlemen that took a short time to answer some questions about some of the cars, not only was he very knowledgeable but was very nice. The manager however was not! Very upset about the fact that we... More

I'm a Fla native, & never knew about this place till we found it by accident through Groupon. It's terrific. We always love antique car shows but this place far surpasses any of them. I've recommended this place to everyone I know, and it's always on my list for out-of-town family and friends. You'll love it!

Great attraction just adults and kids. I suggest that if it's children over 6 it's great, otherwise you have to make sure they don't touch anything! They are all antique cars, not allowed to touch anything. Lots to do, their opened Mon.- Fri. 9:00-4:00pm Sat.-Sun. Opened 10:00am not sure closing time. There's admission fee of $8.00. Easily spend 3 hours... More

I took a friend here when he was in town, and he loved it. I plan to take my boyfriend back, so he can see it also. The cars are beautiful, and any car buff will love it. There is another room with many memories of Teddy Roosevelt, I believe. The only complaint I would have is that the caretakers... More

I've toured several auto museums.... National Auto Museum in Reno and Harrah's, to name a couple. This museum rivals any I have seen. The museum has 39 beautifully restored Packards, from a 1909 speedster to a 1958 Packard Hawk. They also have a great collection of auto signs, horns, dome lights, hubcaps, dashboard clocks, hood ornaments, high-end mini pedal cars... More

This stop was one of our highlights for the week. We got there when it opened so were the first ones in. the Guide "Frank" was great with all of us and especially the 2 young girls. They were really impressed, and I'm sure we all know how difficult that can be. Very knowledgeable guide and his banter was great.... More
