Amazing museum with so many beautiful exhibits. The Studebaker story is so cool and well told. The entire building is amazing with all the different museums. Visit them all! Great history! Allow a good 2-3 hours to get through all of them. You wont be bored!

Loved this place. It's full of history plus it's all about cars. When you have been around the car museum you can visit the Oliver house. If you have Scottish ancestry its the place to go.

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.

Nice museum with a very knowledgeable curator. Worth checking out for the history even if you aren't particularly into cars.
