ABOVE: Our vision for the signage upgrade on the museum’s main building depicting Packards, motorbikes and military vehicles using early advertising illustrations of the era – all we need is the funding! If you can assist with making this happen please contact the museum manager.

Our Mission and Purpose

The Packard Motor Museum provides an informative educational experience based around the automobiles, machinery, stories and lives of those who led the industrial revolution and created and shaped our modern way of life.

We also honour the legacy of resourceful New Zealanders who developed our Kiwi traditions of ingenuity, adaptation and innovation.
Our purpose is to inspire current generations to create an even greater future for us all.
