This is a fine collection of beautifully restored antique autos. You can get up close and personal to a vast array of "tin lizzies." Definitely worth a look

My first warning here is note it is on southWEST 1 st street. Many have not visited this or heard of it in Fort Lauderdale. On asking directions of 9 people only one knew where it was located. They are missing something, hope you don’t. There is a fee/donation to see it, $10 for me. This is a collection of... More

I went with my husband and two year old. They gladly took our money. Then informed us that there was no running or touching in the museum. We were holding our son most of the time. We put him down briefly where he ran 5 steps. He did not bother anything. The museum employee screamed no running to him across... More

Of all the things to do, the one thing that I thought would be lame turned out to be the best. It was a very cool museum with amazing Packard vehicles and other items such as toys, gauges, etc... We arrived late and therefore had to hurry, but if and when we have the time to do it again I... More

Roosevelt plus several special collections of automobile memorabilia. Only got to spend two hours but, I will go back soon and do an all dayer! The... More

This is a terrific museum if you're a Packard lover. Many cars (spanning decades) and tons of car memorabilia (not all Packard) to see. Wish the gift shop offered more.

Having visited Ft Lauderdale many times, it was a surprise to find this exceptional car museum. The only make of cars in the collection are Packard's, all of which are beautifully maintained and displayed. I think a better name for the museum would be The Fort Lauderdale Antique Packard Museum. There is, however, memorabilia from most of the car manufactures... More
