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!!!

Fort Lauderdale is a classy place. So is this museum. This collection of Packard Motorcars is wonderful. We especially appreciated the fact that these cars may viewed closely without having to peek over a rope or barrier. Although you may not touch the cars, you may look as closely as you want to appreciate them. Photography is allowed, but not... More

While on a day trip to Fort Lauderdale, we found this wonderful museum. Not knowing much about Packard, we were interested to learn about it! This is a huge collection with interesting info on each car. There are also many collections of various automobile parts, such as hood ornaments and cigarette lighters. You can also watch a very interesting video... More

I stopped by today (7/9) only to find a sign on the door that said "Summer Hours. Closed on Saturday" Would have been nice if that was posted on their website. Very disappointed.

This place was so cool. The amount of cars they had is incredible. They are all set up for a great stroll through everything with lots to see. It's not just cars either! They have all sorts of antiques set up like a work shop, a gas station, a library, you name it! Overall soooooo well done! They even had... More

It is amazing to think that this was once a private collection. It is magnificent! If you love automobile history and nostalgia, this is a great place to visit. Give yourself at least 2 hours though.

This was a great find while on vacation. The owners are very enthusiastic about the cars and take great care of them. It was a great learning experience. We took our six year old son, who was quickly bored. I don't think it's a fun place for young kids as they can't actually touch or sit in the cars.

I visited the Fort Lauderdale Antique Car Museum as a venue for a business event with a cocktail reception and a special guest speaker and lots of room for networking. I had no idea that this beautiful collection of antique cars was in this area of Fort Lauderdale and I would definitely recommend making at least one trip here to... More
