This museum is a reproduction of a Packard showroom from the 1920s. On display are 22 Packard motor cars from the 1900s to the 1940s, all in full working order. Among them, are Roadsters with compartments for golf clubs, a doctor's coupe with a compartment for his medical bag, and a 1929 645 Dual Cowl Phaeton that can self-lubricate its chassis as it drives along the road.

We spent a little over an hour and really enjoyed the collection of cars and associated antiques. Trip advisor shows they are closed but they were open so call first to be sure.

$10 cash per person - they do not accept checks or credit cards. You'll have to knock on the wooden door and wait-someone will come out to you. ABSOLUTELY worth every penny of it and then some!
