Packard Museum Honored by National Association

The National Packard Museum received accolades at the annual conference of the National Association of Automobile Museum in Lincoln, Neb.

The Packard Museum won three awards of excellence for its entries in collateral materials, interpretive exhibits and films and videos.

The museum competed in Division I against other institutions with budgets of less than $300,000 and was awarded with the following honors: first place in the interpretive exhibits category for its 2012 annual antique motorcycle exhibit, “Motorcycles Around the World.” The annual motorcycle exhibit was conceived, designed and fabricated by an all-volunteer committee chaired by former board member Bruce Williams. It featured more than 30 motorcycles manufactured in 12 countries.

First place in the collateral materials category was for the museum’s promotional rack card its staff designed.

Second place in the films and videos category was awarded for a short documentary film, “Packards Abroad,” produced for the museum’s special exhibit. The award-winning film was written by museum staff and produced by board member Dave Metzendorf and his son James Metzendorf.
