Was greeted warmly when I entered this museum. The cars of exhibit are well cared for and really show that Packard was an exclusive high end car producer. Good examples of pre WWII and perhaps limited ones of the last few years of Packard production.

I have been to the Packard Museum about four times over 15 years. Each time has been different in that the curators are constantly rotating new vehicles to keep the experience fresh. In addition to all of the wonderful vehicles on display, there is much to see in the way of automotive memorabilia from the early to mid 20th century.

Brought my fiance here last week since it was on Trip Advisor's top ten things to do in Dayton. Thanks again, Trip Advisor! This one was a hit. I don't know much about cars but even I appreciated the beauty of these amazing vehicles. My fiance was floored and couldn't get enough. Was pleasantly surprised to learn there was actually... More

This is one of the hidden treasures of downtown Dayton, OH. We have been there for business and pleasure over the past few months. These vehicles are so much fun to look at. They usually have a local car enthusiast on hand to answer any questions. It is a must see for anyone who loves cars.

This is a very interesting place, and it really does take you back in time. The museum, which is housed in the original building where Packard cars were sold and serviced, contains some of the most beautifully restored cars you will find. The curator gave us some history on the building and the cars, and not only did they have... More

50 restored models of this once-luxury auto and very knowledgeable guys who can tell you a lot about these cars. They range in age from about 1903 to 1962. A person could spend an enjoyable 2-3 hours here.
