An interesting and informative visit in the history of Packard automobiles. There were many examples of the cars through the years, including a car which belonged to Al Capone during the bootlegging era. This is a small museum and will take about an hour to get around dependent on your interest level.

This car museum doesn't get the interest it deserves, but it should. Examples of the full range of models for this iconic brand.

This is a great place to see these packards. There are so many and also many other things having to do with the car. A must see if you love cards. My husband loved it.

Once a Packard Dealership in 1917, and now a stunning museum with over 50 autos on display, with plenty of automotive memorabilia, the cars are just stupendous! As an event venue, the Pavilion was perfect for our group of 150. Elite Catering did a fantastic job, from signs for parking to friendly staff and charming bartenders.

The cars were absolutely gorgeous and very well taken care of. The only thing i would have liked to have seen was more information on each car, perhaps associated history of the car and/or owner. A few had interesting stories but most only list the specifications. Beautiful to look at. Employee was knowledgeable, but could not spend the time to... More

If you are into vintage cars, the Packard Museum is the place to go. Not only do they have beautifully restored cars, but it is also a location that I have seen used for company events with catered good and wedding reception. Definitely worth a visit!

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.
