Auburn - 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!

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.

The staff were friendly and helpful. The cars are beautiful. The family enjoyed viewing the quality and craftsmanship that went into these cars and restoring them. The art on the second floor was a great exhibit as well. I wish it was larger. The third floor had Indiana automotive history and examples of other great car manufacturers. Definitely will be back again.

I absolutely love the Auburn Cord museum. Perfect Sunday morning stop for my girlfriend and I to check out a period of time captured by the stunning designs preserved there. The vehicles were preserved, described, and presented with an immense amount of detail to attention. We will definitely be coming back soon to see the other two museums!

The cars are beautiful and the museum is well curated. Even for the non car enthusiasts just looking at the stunning designs and art deco styling is an afternoon well spent. Take your time to fully appreciate these fine automobiles.

The Auburn Cord Duesenberg Museum is an excellent transportation museum. The autos on display are in some ways priceless and irreplaceable. There are a couple floors of vintage automobiles, mostly from the 1920's and 1930's, but with a smattering of classic cars from other eras too. The museum building itself is an art-deco design with all the period floors, window treatments, lamps and other furnishings intact, most of which are from the original building. It's very easy to reach from I-69 with plenty of lodging close by. The museum has good parking and one should plan on spending 1-2 hours in the museum.

If you love old old cars this is great for you or just a car finatic. They have ones you can sit in. the cars they have on display change every so often. They have one of a kind vehicles and vehicles with very low numbers left of them and next door they have a museum with muscle cars and classic semitrucks. Both of these museums are great learning areas for beginners and the advanced in vehicles to visit. So on that note hope you have a great time while your there.
