Stunning Cars Worth Seeing.
Feb 2020
The Packard Motor Car Company manufactured luxury automobiles between 1899 and 1956, and this small yet stunning museum is packed with shiny, impressive marvelous Packard cars of a long-gone era.

The display is a bit dense, and beside the beautiful cars, you can enjoy lots of memorabilia.

The museum is open Monday - Friday 10:00 a.m. - 4 p.m.
Entry costs 10$, cash only.

It's an admirable private museum, a must-see gem for all antique car lovers.

Fun Museum of Antique Packards
Feb 2020
What a charming and fascinating car museum. It was all Packards from the turn of the 20th century to the 1950s. All of the cars are operable which makes it even more interesting. One of the most surprising collections was a huge displays of car cigarette lighters which is something that cars no longer have. The venue is a museum and a place that can be rented out for parties.

All I can say is wow!! This place is amazing. 34 perfectly restored Packards with all the specifics and back story for each one. Plus hundreds if not thousands of other articles. You'll run out of time long before you run out of things to see. This may be the best auto museum I've ever visited. A must see for car buffs . Actually a must see for everyone.

Packards Galore!!!
Jan 2020 • Family
Great place for Packard lovers! Great place for car lovers! I went with my dad and my 5 yr old son. Both were entertained and enchanted for hours.

The collection is immaculately curated. The 2x showrooms are elegant and clean and the cars tell their own story. Every detail recorded, with pictures too!

Just an excellent way to see some of the most beautiful cars of yesteryear.

Quite a few interesting cars.
Jan 2020
There are a number of interesting cars, but its not much like a museum. There's no organization whatsoever. You might find a 1936 Packard next to a 1959 Ford or a fairly new Porsche. The cars are in what I'd call a warehouse with little room to walk around the vehicles. However, its a real hands on experience you can walk right up to the cars and touch them. Lean in the window to view in interior. No one telling you, "Don't touch!". It's more like a used car lot except that the cars are nicely restored and you can see a lot of interesting cars with no hassles. I'd recommend it for anyone who is interested in antique and interesting cars. My favorites were a group of Jaguar roadsters, XK120's XK140's and XK150's. I found the Packard's from the '30's also interesting. (Being a lover of Jaguars and Packards)
It's certainly worth your time. One thing, it's not easy to find. It's like in back of a little strip mall.

Terrific Collection of Packhard Vehicles
Jan 2020 • Couples
Visited this collection of Vintage Packhard vehicles with my wife. The cars are in amazing condition and displayed exceedingly well. Staff were very welcoming and at only $10 per visitor, the Museum is great value. Can highly recommend a visit.

Worth visiting
Dec 2019 • Couples
With the weather so terrible and extreme construction noise in our condo we wanted to find places to go. This was definitely on our list and we are glad we went - friendly, clean, lots to see, read and be nostalgic. My husband was like a kid in a candy shop!
