Had an awesome time here at the Studebaker Museum today.My Fiance is a total car junkie, and wanted him to see this place while on Vacation. We both enjoyed the whole day here. Spent about 2 hours here taking in all of the amazing displays. I absolutely loved the presidential display that is here. All the vehicles are absolutely beautiful and have so much history behind them. It's defiantly a stop to be had while traveling through Indiana.

Wonderful little museum. Car lovers and history buffs alike will find something to marvel at here. Three stories of amazing American steel. And the carriage Lincoln rode to the playhouse on the night of his assassination! What?! The history is palpable.

Great car collection. Studebaker's innovation was consistently 10 years ahead of the competition - odd that they didn't make it out of the 60's alive.

Amazing museum! Not just cars but tons of other things. Can't believe so many people in our area have never been there. MUST GO!
