While not as fancy as the Studebaker Museum in South Bend, this museum has a fine collection of Packards from the 1930s to the end of marque. I was there on a recent Sunday and the place was not crowded at all.

Located in the building of the former Citizens Motor Company, a Packard dealership in "the day," the museum is a wonderful way to look back at the cars and memories of days gone by.

Got talking with John who lifted some of the bonnets for me. Loved the special and most of all the 1936 Darin speedster. Setting in ex dealership is fabulous, and some unique preserved cars.

A smaller museum than the Duesenburg Cord Auburn Museum, but still one that you should not miss if beautiful cars from the early days fascinate you! The staff is happy to give the background on the cars, and the beauty of the early Packards is...More

If you have an interest in cars this is the place for you. It is small enough to see all in a day and it has many points of interest. Thoroughly enjoy my time there.

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