The curators are very nice and we even got to meet the original owner who still works there herself. This was a nice way to spend the morning. This museum is not for small... More

This musium is tucked away in a drab warehouse section of Ft. Lauderdale. The entrance is rather small and located in the middle of the block. Once you go in there is a small memorabilia shop. From there you go into the first of many display rooms. WOW! Each car has been restored to showroom condition. We were lucky enough... More

Some wonderfully restored Packards would usually be the big attraction here and they were all great. However the highlight was meeting Mrs. Stone and being able to thank her for her and her husband's contribution to automotive history. The Packards in the museum are in wonderful condition, probably many would be winners in many competitions (and some apparently have been.)... More

The Fort Lauderdale Antique Car Museum is an excellent private collection of Packard automobiles and trucks from 1909 to the 1950's. Housed in a large warehouse-type structure that is kept in very good condition, it's well worth a visit if you are in South Florida. Along with over 20 cars, there's a large collection of hood ornaments, gear shift knobs,... More

My son really enjoyed all of the display of cars. He's is 5 years old, but I would recommend this when they're a little older since you're not allowed to touch/sit in the cars. It was great for a rainy day. So much detail with each car and it felt like you stepped out of 21st century too. If you're... More

One of the most fabulous and fascinating Fort Lauderdale experiences is visiting this Antique Car Museum which many locals do not know exists (neither do cab drivers). The 39 impressive Packards from 1904 til a Studebaker Hawk was labeled a Packard in the 50's should be a must see for anyone with a sense of nostalgia for "old cars" The... More

This place was amazing. It was like walking back in time. The history, the cars, and the people who work there are all amazing. You could hear the pride and honor pouring from them as they showed us around. I will be coming back to see the decorations for Christmas. If you like history and /or old time cars you... More
