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 had a very nice time here, walked from Four Points Fort Lauderdale. My husband and I enjoy history. I sat and read some old magazines while he took his time reading everything. It was a nice time.

If' you've ever picked up a wrench and busted a knuckle, this place is for you! Nice collection of restored and original Packards, but the real fun is the collections of automotive bits and pieces: cigar lighters, dash knobs, grease cups and oilers, headlight lenses,...More

$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!
