“Interesting and fun!!”
Reviewed March 30, 2013

My husband and I visited the Citizens Motorcar Co this month and really enjoyed it. The volunteers go out of their way to make the visit memorable. My husband is a car buff and found it most interesting. We would return for sure.

“Exquisite”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

Absolutely enchanting. The gentlemen that work there are wonderful, too: gracious and hospitable. It was stepping back into time. Everything about the place is perfect.

“Interesting short trip”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

Enjoyed a visit here. Husband liked it a lot. I'm not into cars so much, but it was interesting to see all the old models. It was only $5-6 to go in. There was an older gentleman who greeted us and gave us some background info on the museum. The tour was self-guided, but the guide also walked with us some and told us about the different car models and companies. Something fun to do once I think. I wouldn't bring young kids here because you can't touch anything and they might be bored. You would probably spend an hour or less here.

“Winter Weekend”
Reviewed March 8, 2013

Very good hobby activity. Packards are a special interest of mine. The Museum is very well done and has a broad range of vehicles to tell the history of the Packard Motor Car Company.

“When America built the BEST car in the world!”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

If you like Packard automobiles, fine cars, or you just want to witness the best American engineering and manufacturing products, this place is for you. Operating in a HUGE former car dealership, this museum has a fantastic collection of Packards. The building itself is also of historic and nostalgic interest. Not as good as the Auburn Cord Deusenberg museum in Indiana, the Packard Museum is still a great place to visit. Displays are designed more for an adult audience. Bottom line: industrial beauty and exquisite workmanship.
