America's Packard Museum - The Citizens Motorcar Co. reviews
This is a wonderful car museum dedicated to Packards. The museum is in an old Packard dealership. The place is really cool and a must see for old car enthusiasts. more »
Sadly, when we got to the museum, they were closed. For now it seems they have pretty limited hours. I suggest you call before going. Fortunately, we were able to see many of the exhibits through the.... more »
Great collection of pre-war and post war Packards. Many of the cars have been restored to near perfect condition. There was NO Air Conditioning in half of the building and it was extremely... more »
This is a restored dealership with remarkably maintained cars from all the different eras that Packard made cars. I was also impressed with the Merlin WW2 plane engine on display. The 2nd building has lots of original documents and blue prints in the library and some of the later Caribbean convertibles. They have a space for littler ones too. Great visit and close to the Wright Brothers workshop.
This was a great experience. $6 adults, $5 for senior or children. Well worth the price. They had the cars divided up between pre-WWII and post. The building is in what was originally a dealership decorated with plenty of original material. Each vehicle had a placard giving interesting facts about the era, the car model and that specific vehicle. Very nicely done. We easily spent two hours casually meandering around. You could spend longer if you linger longer on each car.
I went in with lower expectations, but was pleasantly surprised at the depth of history and interest that this museum offers. Couple that with the newly acquired knowledge of Packard's storied history, and we were truly amazed and entertained. From pioneering new technology to helping to create the engines that powered our planes and boats in WW2, Korean War and so much more ... It's absolutely fascinating and inspiring. High quality displays and artifacts; Extremely knowledgeable and friendly docents. We were impressed ... even our 9 year old enjoyed the visit. We spent about 2 hours.
Wow! Went to the Memphis Belle. That was great. Was recommended to see this place by an older gentleman. My grandson and I loved it.
Great place in Dayton to learn about the Packard car lines and pre and post war vehicles. Very educational for a novice car enthusiast. The museum fee was minimal and kids get in free. I would recommend that you stop in and learn about the Packard car company.
