I arrived here very late, but still had about an hour to see the museum which is about right for the time you need to see all the vehicles and to get a good look. The collection is split between two older buildings and there is space for parking on the street. They have a large collection of Packards from... More

If you like antique cars, this is a must see! I didn't know this place even existed in our area ,until I went there for an event. The building is a restored Packard dealership that was turned into a museum. There are several styles of beautiful Packard's in this museum, the collection is outstanding! They have a Packard Hearse that... More

It is impressive what a bunch of enthusiastic volunteers can do: the collection is worth the ticket (a moderate 8$) and you will not be disappointed by your experience here!

A beautiful display of classic Packards in their "home setting". Many of the docents worked on and restored these cars and know the history of each one! Ask about the Diesel powered Radial Engine on display.

I visited the museum today and was amazed. It was like stepping back in time. It was nice to see the cars in the setting of an old dealership and service area.

We recently attended a retirement party - a catered event - for close personal friends held at the Packard Museum . . . the full deal . . . semi-formal dress code, hors d'oeuvres, open bar (with locally sourced craft beers), light DJ music, and 80 plus family and friends of the retirees. It was an amazing time. The facility... More

The museum is somewhat like the cars; a bit faded here and there, but the original showroom, dealership and smell of oil really do conjure history. Well worth seeing, very reasonably priced and there are a few oddities that you will recognize if you're a fan of old car publications. It's grand in a days gone by way, and I... More

The gentleman that worked there was great. I enjoy walking around learning about the history of Packard. Costed a few bucks to get in but worth it.
