This was quite a find. We found it takes several hours to go through the over 30,000 acres of exhibits on Packards and old car memorabilia. Well worth your time if you love old cars.

We had a few hours to kill on our final day in South Florida and found this gem. The collection itself is really quite incredible. It would be hard to find a larger collection of only one brand of auto. But there is more as the founder either collected or became the owner of quite a few other collections of... More

There are more than 40 fully restored Packard Antique Autos. This museum is a true hidden treasure for any auto buff. We spent 1/2 a day looking at the cars and related memoribela. A must see for people in the area.

At first I was a little disappointed to learn that only Packard's were on display but then I came to learn the wisdom of showing only one car company. The evolution of the Packard designs, the change in style, and engineering advancements were more easily grasped on these beautiful machines. All of our questions were answered by the very helpful...

Whether or not you are "into" cars, this was an interesting museum. There are so many cars that are amazing to look at. You could spend all afternoon there if you really are into cars, or breeze thru it in an hour.

We have been to Fort Lauderdale several times, but had never heard about this museum until our travel companions on this trip very much would like to see it. This antique car museum was amazing!

I took probably 100 pictures of these beautifully restored Packards which seemed to span the whole range of production years. The collection includes thousands of accessories such as antique radiator grille caps, trucks, limos, incredible antique pedal cars. A huge collection with includes a short film about the history of the Packard automobile. Allow at least and hour possibly more... More
