America’s Packard Museum is proud to announce that it reopened to the public on June 5, 2021. Summer hours are as follows:

  • Open to the public from noon to 5 p.m. Thursday-Sunday
  • Group tours of 10 or more by appointment on Wednesday
  • Admission is $10 for adults; $5 for guests over 60, and free for children and students with valid ID.

The museum has recently added five new Packards to our permanent collection, so even if you have been to see us previously, there will be something new to see.

The museum is located at 420 S. Ludlow St. in Dayton, in a building that was originally a Packard dealership. For more information, call 937-226-1710 or go online to americaspackardmuseum.org.
