America's Packard Museum is an automotive museum in Dayton, Ohio. The building is a restored Packard dealership transformed into a museum that displays 20-century classic Packards and historic Packard artifacts and memorabilia. Originally, The Citizens Motorcar Company sold Packards in Dayton, Ohio beginning in 1908, and moved into what is now the museum building in 1917. Robert Signom II, the museum's Founder and Curator, acquired the building in 1991 and rehabilitated it to its original Art Deco appearance. More than 50 cars are on display, from 1900s Brass Era cars to the streamlined Classic cars of the 1930s and 1940s, and modern Packards of the 1950s, as well as war machines, parts, accessories, and original sales and service literature.
