A directory of fun things to do in sunny Fort Lauderdale
June 20, 2013 - Antique Car Museum, Fort Lauderdale
Antique car lovers would never mind traveling to places to check out antique car museums all over the country. Some are so crazy and mad about antique cars that they would travel overseas if they found out if there are museums or exhibitions overseas too! However, even if you are not an ardent fan of antique cars, it is always still an eye opening experience to check out the antique car museums once a while. At Fort Lauderdale, our charter bus service can bring you and your friends for a visit to the Fort Lauderdale Antique Car Museum – a place not to be missed when you are in this part of the country.
The Fort Lauderdale Antique Car Museum was founded by Arthur O. Stone, who used to own a floral company and this museum has a wide collection of pre-war Packard automobiles as well as other mementos. Mr Arthur O. Stone himself is also known to be an automobile enthusiast. Most of our Fort Lauderdale charter bus passengers to this museum always have much praises to speak of this museum and it is always the pleasure of our bus drivers to send visitors to this place.
A casual and leisure walk through the Fort Lauderdale Antique Car Museum takes about two to three hours, so it would be a good idea to charter one of our buses to the museum, so that you won’t have to feel tired driving and looking for a parking spot that the thought of walking a couple of hours at the museum would seem like the last thing that you would want to do.
Fort Lauderdale Antique Car Museum is a showroom of a fleet of Packard’s motor cars between the 1900s right through 1940s – and they are all in working order too! Unfortunately, visitors to the museum will not have the opportunity to “test drive” any of these cars – they are in the museum as exhibits only. Among the collection of antique cars, you will also find that they have on display a delivery van, fire truck, paddy wagon and a hearse too. We are quite sure that on your way to the museum in our chartered bus, the bus driver would have already shared a little about the museum in much excitement!
If you have brought along your camera with you on the trip, please take note that in the museum, you are allowed to take photos but without a flash. And if you would like to have a group photo before you leave the grounds of the museum, our Fort Lauderdale chartered bus driver will be more than glad to double up as a photographer for that moment.
