I enjoyed it very much

Great Place and worth a quick visit. If you like car history, this is a good place to check out. It is a non-profit organization, and a great deal to get in.

Although the museum is scheduled to open at 10am weekdays, they opened an hour early so we could come thru and spend some time before work during a business trip. Met the owner, super sweet lady with an incredible collection on display. Any person with a passion for cars will find something to love here!

If you like Packard cars, this is the place for you! A nice variety of immaculately kept, privately owned Packards. The manager even fired up a couple so we could listen. Nice film, too, with the history. Can easily spend 1-2 hours here.

Amazing to see the transition from horse and carriage to auto. Everything here from sports cars to paddy wagons. Perfect for the rainy day or just need to see antique cars.

Wonderful museum devoted to all things Packard Automobile. Fear not - it's a wonderful education in the golden era of the automobile. A passionate curator makes the exhibits come alive. He turned on a pair of early 20th century cars which turn over to a quiet, vibration less thrum. Mechanical precision in and an age electronic cars. These cars also... More

If you're a fan of Packard Automobiles or antique cars in general, this is definitely the place for you. The museum features a collection of about 40 antique Packards from all different eras of the company. Some specialty cards, such as a tow truck and a fire truck are featured, but most are the luxury passenger cars that the company... More
