“What a wonderful trip back in time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2012

I couldn't have imagined a better experience. My wife and went in not knowing what to expect, and came out with a decent knowledge of Packard automobiles. This place is huge, with an impressive collections of Packards. At each turn, there was more and more to view. We received a personal tour from one of the curators, and his knowledge and tidbits of trivia were impressive and highly informative. Well tended, and well operated.

“Superb collection of antique Packards”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 February 2012

Although this museum is called an "antique car" museum, it's really a museum of Packard cars -- undoubtedly the best such museum in existence. For many decades Packard made some of the finest luxury cars in the world. Over twenty of these magnificent vehicles are on display here, nearly all of them restored to pristine original condition. This museum is well worth a visit even if you aren't a classic car enthusiast....it's a true trip back into a different and more leisurely world. You'll be astounded at the elegance, beauty, and often the sheer size of these magnificent machines.

“One of the best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 January 2012

My husband and I have been to many auto museums and exhibits through the years but the fort lauderdale museum was one of the best. We showed up at 3pm, they close at 4pm thinking we would be in and out but a very nice man that works there gave us the grand tour. He went over all the cars and memorabilia answered all our questions and took our pictures with different cars. A museum like this should be cherished so I was sad to hear that it took almost 5 years before it was publicized as a place to see by ft. Lauderdale tourism. The cars are fantastic with a few extremely rare cars and great examples of rare hood ornaments. I highly recommend this place to car enthusiasts as well as people just interested in automotive history and the beauty of the old car. Admission price was $8 and worth it.
