Admission is only $5; setting is an old restored dealership showroom and service area, which is interesting in itself. Beautiful selection of old Packard vehicles. Everyone who likes old cars or history should include this stop on any visit to Dayton

If you are a fan of classic cars, this is the place to visit. There are dozens and dozens of beautiful Packards to gaze upon in this space. I've been many times over the years and I always learn something new with every visit.

Great exhibit in an actual old Packard dealership. Some beautiful Packards are on display as well as the old tools and equipment used in the garage. Staff will answer all questions and are quite knowledgeable on Packards.

The museum is housed in 100 year old building that began life as a Packard dealership and for 100 years has apparently always been used for something automotive related. The collection is excellent and I would assume changes based on what's on loan. When we...More

I believe $6 for adults, students are free. They may ask for a student ID if not obviously a child.
