Beautiful cars; wonderful history; a swath of Americana from the turn of the last century to its middle, this museum has it all! Though I'm a "gearhead", my wife isn't, but each lovely car here turned her head as well as mine. Some of the loveliest examples of automotive art ever built are here! The setting is marvelous as well,... More

We brought our tour group of classic car owners here and they really loved it. The guide is knowledgeable and enthusiastic. They are nice folks and made our visit very enjoyable.

First, I'm no "motor head". I never cared for car maintenance as a hobby. It's a chore. I've never bought an old car as a hobby. That said, the collection of classic Parkard automobiles here is one to turn heads. So much beauty. So many classic designs. Even if, like me, you don't really care for cars as such, these... More

The history of Packard Motorcar Company is laid out before you. It will amaze you what you will learn. Plus you get to see many vehicles you most likely have not seen previously.

The Packard Museum in Dayton was our 1st stop this morning (May 2, 2014) on a Mystery Tour. This our first Mystery Tour so it was a nice surprise to see that we had a car museum to check out. My husband loves cars...he was a happy man. I love to photograph beautiful cars but my favorite things are hood... More

Very interesting place to see while in Dayton whether you are a classic car enthusiast or not. Close up look of every car on display. Imagine yourself driving one of those oldies in today's modern world.

The Packard Museum is fantastic! It is located inside an old Packard Dealership which is really neat to see. The Packards are beautifully restored and just beautiful and they have so many too. They have another building next to the main old dealership with lots more classic Packards to see. Some really cool unique cars there that we're on loan... More

My Grandson and I visited the Packard Museum (Citizens Motorcar Co) in March 2014. It is located in an original Packard Dealership in downtown Dayton Ohio. There were plenty of cars to see ranging from 1904 through 1958. They have the Packard hearse used in the movie “The Godfather” and a 1932 sedan that was in the movie “The Curious... More

If you like old cars or car-related venues, this former Packard dealership is the place to go. It's very low key. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. Our docent spent considerable time with my elderly father-in-law, opening doors to give us interior views, and providing wonderful anecdotes. The entrance fee of $5 gives more satisfaction than a pricey cup... More

It's not a large museum, but there's a good selection of antique cars to look at, as well as "artifacts" of the dealership and repair shop that used to be there. The gentleman volunteering that day was incredibly friendly and knowledgeable - if the car you're viewing doesn't have a placard or you have questions, just ask. There's no parking,... More
