Housed in a restored Packard car dealership, America's Packard Museum is a must-see destination for car enthusiasts. It is the only Packard museum located in a restored Packard dealership. The museum features 50 Packard vehicles and numerous artifacts, making it the largest collection of its kind in the world. It is an affiliate member of the Packard Club and was bestowed the prestigious James J. Bradley Award by the Society of Automotive Historians for its efforts to preserve the legacy of the Packard Motor Car Company. The museum was founded in 1992 by local attorney and car collector, Bob Signom. Among the Packards on display is the 1942 Clipper used by General Douglass MacArthur.
