Great place to enjoy! Staff was friendly and knowledgeable. There are two gallery rooms to see! Plenty to see to excite everyone in the group. We really enjoyed it and will most defiantly return. $6 entry fee = more than reasonable. Took about 2 hours for us, probably less for others sightseeing the museum.

Really cool vintage Packard Motorcar's. Did not know a place like this existed in Dayton and I had lived here my entire life. Probably one of the best collection of Packards in the country. Really interesting history. A must see if you are into vintage automobiles.

Visited last night with my business colleagues as a dinner venue. Excellent choice. Not just beautiful cars and real history. Like entering the golden age of the automobile. Knowledgeable host had the real stories of the machines and site. I need to come back with my family.

Grandma and Grandpa Rat had a 1955 Packard Caribbean Hardtop. We used head from Indy to Minocqua WI every summer in that bad boy. One of my fondest memories of the trip each summer was lying on the rear floor of the beast and looking up at the big blue sky. Imagine my delight today when I saw a 1955... More

The American Packard Museum is a must see if you are interested in older cars. My husband is and he really enjoyed his time there as he once owned a 1942 Packard clipper. Also we had a guided tour by Bill who made the experience so much better as he was so informative about the vehicles,we even got to see... More

An interesting and informative visit in the history of Packard automobiles. There were many examples of the cars through the years, including a car which belonged to Al Capone during the bootlegging era. This is a small museum and will take about an hour to get around dependent on your interest level.

This car museum doesn't get the interest it deserves, but it should. Examples of the full range of models for this iconic brand.

This is a great place to see these packards. There are so many and also many other things having to do with the car. A must see if you love cards. My husband loved it.

Once a Packard Dealership in 1917, and now a stunning museum with over 50 autos on display, with plenty of automotive memorabilia, the cars are just stupendous! As an event venue, the Pavilion was perfect for our group of 150. Elite Catering did a fantastic job, from signs for parking to friendly staff and charming bartenders.

The cars were absolutely gorgeous and very well taken care of. The only thing i would have liked to have seen was more information on each car, perhaps associated history of the car and/or owner. A few had interesting stories but most only list the specifications. Beautiful to look at. Employee was knowledgeable, but could not spend the time to... More
