This museum is privately owned. The man who collected the Packards and other cars that are there and all of the various automotive paraphernalia must have been possessed. Is collections are extensive and eccentric. And the cars are beautiful and in wonderful condition. It's a small museum, but you can spend hours there, especially if you're really into cars. There...

Getting to look at the old Packards and other memorabilia there is amazing. The collection is quite extensive and really makes you appreciate the craftsmanship that went into cars of that era.

We went before embarking on our cruise ship, as it us very close to Port Everglades. If you are interested in vintage cars, do not miss thus exhibit! The cars are in excellent conditions and you can learn a lot about each model.

What a great collection of beautiful cars - some very unique - one driven in an inaugural parade, a hearse, a fire truck, tow truck, sports cars, phaetons . . . what a variety of color and models throughout a long history of an amazing automobile! Our host was tremendously helpful and friendly too! Thanks for a great tour!

My husband and I had sometime to spend here after coming off a cruise and waiting for our next day flight. We found this on Trip Advisor and boy, were we ever glad. This is a life long collection of wonderfully preserved autos and car paraphernalia. We spent over 3 hours just wandering around and will go back for more... More

I was invited to a "dinner between cars" and enjoyed both. Nicely displayed antique cars, strolling with an adult beverage, followed by well prepared dinner (catering company) and good service.

This is a pretty good collection of Packards from the beginning of the 20th century to the sad end in the 50's. The museum is limited to Packards, including some trucks and commercial vehicles. If you like Packards, it's worth the trip. The exterior of the building and surrounding property is somewhat seedy and made me wonder why. Admission price... More

Ft. Lauderdale Antique Car museum. A true gem for petrol heads. Exclusively Packards but in outstanding shape and with collections of figurines, lighters, Oil pumps, original ads. etc. etc. Went there for an hour before getting on the plane back to DENMARK. We were stunned by the level of detail. Amazing!!!
