An amazing collection of Packard cars all in running condition and lovingly cared for. Also collections of miscellany having to do with Packards and the heyday of the brand. A video on the history of Packard was interesting but a little slow moving. Location is out of the way but definitely worth the detour. Cash only!

I suppose that any lovers of vintage automobiles would like this exhibit, but it's targeted at those who are especially fond of Packards. There are plenty of styles and models, beautifully restored, and the lighting is adequate that (without flash) you can get some pretty good shots. In addition to the cars, there are lots of parts and accessories on... More

Had a great display of packards, nostalgic items, movie to watch. We even got a pretty nice private tour with the small group who gathered around the gentleman who told us to follow him. He knew many interesting things about items in the museum. If you're lucky you'll bump into him too!

We went to this auto museum expecting all models and found out it was strictly Packards..... not a bad thing! We loved the cars and the collectibles. Near the end of our visit we were approached by one of the staff members and were given another personalized tour with explanations, that was reeeeeeeeeaaallly nice touch.

The museum is well cared for and so are the cars. If you enjoy looking at historic cars in great condition in an air conditioned museum that is very up kept then this is the place for you. I really enjoyed it and I'm not a car fanatic. The tour guides are also spectacular!

Went here on a brief visit to Fort Lauderdale. Well hidden but full of amazing quality autos and automotive memorabilia. Very well preserved Packards ranging from 1909 to the 1950's. All vehicles are running vehicles. For people who like cats this is a great stop in Fort Lauderdale.

A member of staff greeted us at the door, she was pleasant and provided us with some information about the museum.The entry fee of $10 per person was a... More

Collection includes sub collections car parts ie hood ornaments, cigarette lighters, kname plates, horns (including the Wolf Whistle with illustration that leaves no room for doubt), old Life Magazines, a room on...

We visited this auto museum because the main collection is all dedicated to the Packard automobile. My father-in-law restored a 1940 one and we wanted to visit this museum, see other years and get a book and photos of the place to show my father-in-law. When we arrived, the front door was locked but a sign indicated to “ring the... More

This sprawling building houses about four dozen Packards from 1909 to the 50's,each of which is in mint condition. There are no other makes of cars, despite the museum,s more expansive name. Part of the visit is guided and the rest you see on your own, but there are interpretive descriptions of each car, some of which are interesting to... More
