Well worth the visit

3 elderly ladies with limited mobility and one chauffeurse from Age Concern Whangarei, came to see the Packard Museum. What a lot of memories and stories from the past were brought to mind as we viewed the cars and machinery. Really enjoyed this museum. We know very little about cars and machinery but we surely enjoyed our visit. Mel was particularly kind and gave very interesting information. We would recommend anybody going out to see this collection. I didn't know if it was worth visiting, but it certainly was. There's a huge collection to see. A fantastic place for everyone to go to. Thanks a million, Mel; you made our day! My 3 ladies were buzzing with the excitement of their visit!

Hi Elizabeth, thank you for the review. I did hear the Ladies talking about the vehicles they recognised and it was quite amazing to me, the details they remembered. For many it is definitely a walk through our past and certain can bring back forgotten memories. I'm glad you all enjoyed the visit. See you again one day. Mel. (Packard Motor Museum)

Hi Bruce, glad you enjoyed your visit. Good thing about the museum, you can stay all day ( till 4pm) or spend as little time as you've got. There are plenty of memories stored at this museum and it doesn't take much to bring them out. I shall pass on your comment to both the staff and the Cafe. Thank you for the review, hopefully , see you again one day... Mel. (Admin)
