Met the owner and loved the antique cars, took all kinds of pictures. First day we arrived, they were closed for an event. Came back next day, and it was worth the trip.

I am an antique car fan so this was one of the best museums yet. While it is Do Not Touch, one can walk around the entire car and peek in the windows, see other historical items up close, and hear more about the Packard Car history. Large museum with many interesting Packards that are in running condition. Well worth... More

This Museum Shows Packard cars of every year they were built. There are about 40 beautiful old timers to see. What surprised us most is the other staff hanging on the walls and showing hundreds or more details which get built into a car. We bought the book Arthur O. Stone, the collector of this wonderfull things, and we can... More

I took my relatives here over the Christmas holiday in 2014 and we were all blown away. The knowledge of the guide who took us around and showed us the 30+ classic Packards was incredible. Big Band music was playing in this huge building, with Dade County Pine wood-paneling throughout. The walls are festooned with car memorabilia that spans almost... More

The Fort Lauderdale Antique Car Museum has a collection of 39 Packards. Since I have a cousin that lives in Warren Ohio I always had an interest in Packard Cars. The Packard brothers started the car business in Warren Ohio around 1895 and only built cars for about 5 years in Warren then it moved to Detroit. The final car... More

Went on a rainy day and got the surprise of our lives. This is an antique Packard Museum. We never new the magnificent role Packard's played in the history of cars. Cars are displayed in realistic settings with short and long (for car enthusiasts) interesting descriptions. One of the staff also offered us a personal tour which we took advantage... More
