This museum is loaded with Packards! The automobiles are fantastic, restored, and working remnants of the past. 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

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.

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

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!
