I visited this place a few times over the years and it was always great to check out all those old Packards in such good shape, not to mention the friendly staff that were always on hand to walk with you and explain the history and love for those cars. Especially the tall cat named Jimmy. He was the absolute... More

One of those afternoon gloomy weather and rain soaked roads. Was too excited to pass by and as I entered ! My friend had this Dayton flyers hoodie, so this amazing person at the front recognized us as students and entry fee was waived off. Was glad. As I walked in the first car on the right made my eyes... More

I wish this place had more reviews and more visitors. The day I visited, there was only 1 other visitor. Staff is very friendly and informative. They can give you a tour or you can walk around by yourself. It is not just the cars to look at but building itself. A staff member educated me that the building is... More

This is a GREAT little (2 sizeable buildings) museum. I'm sure they could greatly enhance the information provided on signage and placards if they had more resources. As it is, the docent(s) on site happily provide background and answer questions as best they can. The cars on exhibit are beautiful and wonderfully restored or preserved. Other facets of Packard history,... More

My friend had a '56 Packard back in the day, and there was one there in this museum. It brought back a flood of memories. Also on site is excellent info (and examples) about Packard marine engines

Really a cool place to visit. It is kind of off the beaten path a little but worth the trip. It was like stepping back in history in a showroom full of old cars. The small staff, one person actually was very informative about the cars being displayed. My dad would of been in heaven if he could gone.
