Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum

1600 South Wayne Street

The Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum, a National Historic Landmark, has welcomed nearly two million visitors from all 50 states and from over 40 countries since the museum opened its doors at Noon on Saturday, July 6, 1974. It inhabits the former Auburn Automobile Company’s national headquarters building, a place where history was made over 75 years ago! Many of the Auburn and Cord automobiles you see driving around Auburn each Labor Day weekend were designed and developed in this very building.

The Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum’s vision is to preserve Auburns, Cords, Duesenbergs, the Auburn Automobile Company headquarters building and other fine automobiles and artifacts relevant to documenting their historical significance for centuries to come.

The mission of the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum is to preserve, interpret and create passion for Auburn, Cord and Duesenberg automobiles and their heritage of innovation, influence, design and competition while meeting or exceeding the highest museum standards.

Great place to take family interested in automotive history. A big thank you to museum volunteer, Sharon Smith, for providing us with tons of information for the history behind the historic building, the auto companies, and the cars themselves. Sharon was a delight to listen to and ask questions of, giving us a better appreciation of what we were viewing; not to mention recommending Sandra D's Italian Garden for dinner.....YUM!

I cannot possibly say enough positive things about my experience at this museum. It's incredibly extensive, contains so much information, and is very well laid-out. There are so many rare cars in this building that it blew my mind. They have a parts-built Tucker 48; probably more rare than a factory-assembled Tucker. With the other museums around Auburn, a family could easily make a day trip around coming here. Wear comfortable shoes, and expect to spend a minimum of three to four hours here. You will not be disappointed.

Fantastic museum. So much information, so many awesome cars. All the staff are incredibly informative and take pride in what they do. They are passionate about the cars. It's soooo worth the time you spend there. I only wish I could've spent more than 2 hours. The museum is extremely well kept and clean and neat and organized.

I was not expecting this museum to be as big or informal as it was. I was truly impressed with all of the cars and information in the museum. It was a very fun way to spend time with my family.
