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.

I think we paid five or six dollars each, it wasn't much but well worth it.
