"Packardtimeline.com is dedicated to preserving the rich history of the Packard legacy, which includes over 125 years of innovation. The Packard Electric company, which was founded in 1890 (and later the automotive company in 1899) are the foundation around which this legacy is built. This legacy of innovation continues to this day with the global automotive supplier: Delphi (of which Packard is a division). Packardtimeline.com's mission is to preserve and honor the past, present, and future achievements and innovations of Packard. Delphi, in conjunction with the National Packard Museum, has begun the journey to tell that legacy in the comprehensive story presented here. We invite you to join us in that journey, and help create, inspire, and innovate for another 125 years."

The National Packard Museum's Mission is to preserve the Packard Legacy, to recognize Packard's influence on transportation and industrial history, and to educate current and future generations. The museum carries out that mission through the operation of a world-class facility that collects, preserves, and exhibits a collection of automobiles, artifacts, and documents and hosts a variety of educational programs and special events "to ensure the Packard Legacy endures."

The National Packard Museum opened at its permanent location on July 4, 1999. The 7,500 square foot facility is located next to the W.D. Packard Music Hall and Packard Park in Warren, Ohio's historic district. The museum houses a rotating display of original and restored Packard automobiles as well as original documents, photographs, artifacts, and interpretive materials that chronicle the illustrious history of the Packard family, the Packard Motor Car Company, and the Packard Electric Company.
