The museum houses some of the most beautiful Packard Antique Cars in existence. The setting is a classic garage setting with many thousands of paraphernalia located around the walls.

Located on a back street it has a limited exposure and therefore only rarely visited. You ring a bell for admittance, pay your $10 (donation) and stroll among perhaps 30 or so rare Packard's. There is also display cases of Packard items of all sorts....More

Yes - It is on the Downtown Route. Google "Fort Lauderdale Sun Trolley Route" and find the map. It is about a minutes walk across from the road of the Broward Hospital - near SW17th St.

$10 cash per person - they do not accept checks or credit cards. You'll have to knock on the wooden door and wait-someone will come out to you. ABSOLUTELY worth every penny of it and then some!
