A little hard to find and not in the best section of Dayton but I highly recommend this museum which is inside an original Packard dealership. So along with all the great cars, you get to go back in time with the dealership also; sales rooms, service and parts desk, etc. Price is very reasonable. Plenty of free on-street parking.... More

My husband and I visited America's Packard Museum and thoroughly enjoyed our tour with the very knowledgeable docent. It is a must for car buffs and even fans of early 20th century history in the US. Its great!

I was blown away..this is definitely a hidden gem in Dayton. The staff was so personable, helpful and patient.Our trip consisted of 10 senior citizens, some with limited mobility and confusion. The staff made them feel so welcomed and appreciated, I can say enough to praise their efforts. The museum is wonderful. I plan to visit again.

The camel-colored brick facility on the corner of South Ludlow Street is actually a restored Packard Dealership originally built in 1917 and now functioning as a museum. It was the vision and brain-child of a... More

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

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
