This is an outstanding museum located in downtown Dayton, Ohio. It was my first visit here. The facility is located in an old auto dealership which has been through several changes.....but it was a Packard Dealership first! The autos on display are in great condition and they range from the earliest to the latest Packard's. Some really exceptional models are... More

This is a little museum dedicated to Packards and is in an original Packard dealership. There are two parts to the collection in different buildings. There are good descriptions to most of the cars, and a lot to learn. There are old parts and other items scattered about, and this makes the visit even more interesting. The guide was very... More

This is a gem of a museum. It is somewhat small, but the guides have been so interesting and have lots of information it takes awhile to get through the building. When we went they had a car that was in The Godfather, which was pretty cool. The artistic detail of the vehicle elements is incredible and we have taken... More

We enjoyed visiting the Packard Museum with my cousins a while back. We enjoyed just going around at our own pace but there was also a gentleman there who was quite knowledgeable and had some interesting things to add. Reasonably priced for some great cars. I

It is hard to believe that there was a time when there were cars built that would occupy two parking spaces, and probably had to refill gas tank after going a few blocks. Beautiful cars of yesterday, including Avanties and Packards Very knowledgeable guides to exhibits.

This gem of a museum is staffed by volunteer Packard enthusiasts. As one who remembers when these cars were the epitome of luxury, I was thrilled to visit this place. In an authentic old Packard dealership, the setting is perfect for the display of these vintage classics. The sheer number of vehicles requires a good deal of time to savor... More

While in town for a couple of days, we happened upon this place. Being fans of classic cars, we checked it out. You've seen them in old movies: gorgeous Packards - many in near showroom condition - on display, in the original showroom/garage, along with original tools, manuals, historical photos and whatnot. The vehicles range from very early 1900s to... More

I had no idea that this very cool place existed in our own backyard! I recommend visiting for something different to do. The cars are truly incredible and were enjoyed by both the adults and the kids that ranged in age from 5-14. You will not be disappointed.

If you have any interest in classic cars, American history, or just like design, this is a must see. I have no interest in cars, but was fascinated by this collection. The docents are extremely knowledgeable. There are cars owned by presidents, used in Hollywood movies, and at least one spacy looking prototype.

What an impressive collection...the building was the original dealership and repair shop that has now been converted to a museum showcasing all the great Packard history and the story of how they came to be and what made them such an iconic figure in automotive history. For just a couple bucks a person the guide was very informative, the cars... More
