If you like classic cars like I do, then this is a must see museum. Even if you are not into cars you can appreciate the history of the Auburn, Duesenberg, and Cord cars. They are truly works of art! The building itself was constructed in the 20's and maintains the originality of the art deco design. Truly stunning. There... More

My husband loves and knows a lot about all aspects of cars and I love design, so the original Art Deco showroom setting combined with many superb cars kept us enthralled for over three hours. The volunteer guides are friendly and knowledgeable. In addition to cars, there are displays with collections devoted to engine design history, the industrial design process,... More

Wow what a fantastic collection of cars! Auburns, Cords and Duesenberg fill the old showroom in Auburn, IN and make this a must stop destination. Open every day. And in addition, you'll find a Tucker, Packards, Cadillacs and many other spectacular cars. Even the showroom itself, an art deco gem is worth seeing.

This is a magnificent museum and I am not at all an old car enthusiast. There are three reasons everyone should enjoy a visit this museum. 1. The cars themselves are beautiful works of art. You must see them to fully understand this statement. 2. The write-ups about the cars are not limited to technical information. They include fascinating human... More

After many trips through Auburn, finally decided to take the museum off my bucket list of places to visit. Took a friend there to celebrate her birthday and really enjoyed our visit. The cars are simply amazing and the history of them is very interesting. Definitely worth the money to see such a beautiful piece of Indiana history.
