Great place!

If you are a car person, this is a great place! I have been here three times and really enjoy it. It is also a great place to go after you are in the ACD Museum next door.

Great collection of special cars. This museum is located next to the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum. We spend some time here with a boy scout troop. The boys enjoyed it a lot and also has a nice collection of toy cars.

Visited this museum in November. Was a great collection of rare vehicles, trucks, old gas pumps and other automotive items. Spent a couple hours drooling over all the classic cars. They have a lot of Hudsons, Chryslers, And a restored GMC Futureliner. This thing was a massive undertaking and they did a great job getting it for their museum. The... More

Came across NATMUS while in the area on a planned visit to another auto museum. Wish I had more time to stay there. A lot of auto history in one building. Cars I remember. I planning on returning and spend the day.

Go here first since they close at 5pm. The Auburn Cord museum right in front of this is open til 7pm. We didn't know that and only had 30 min. here...much too short! More modern autos/car/trucks & some are for sale

First, there is no heat or AC on the factory floor, so if it's a really hot day, it can be uncomfortable. The lack of heat means hours in winter are limited. That said, there are some real gems in the museum, like the detailed Cord pedal cars. Those are downstairs, so you want to be sure and make it... More

After the Duesenberg museum next door this was a bit of a comedown. The cars are good to average with many unrestored but still interesting. I would suggest the two complexes be combined into one. Different era cars and trucks but still very interesting and a GREAT display of pedal cars.

I came to Auburn to see the Auburn-Cord-Duesenberg Museum, located next door, and frankly was not sure I wanted to spend more time in another auto museum, but as long as I was here I figured "why not" and I'm very glad I did! In fact, I spent an entire morning here. The museum occupies portions of the former Auburn-Cord-Duesenberg... More

If you have any interest in car/truck museums, you must stop by here (behind the Auburn/Cord Dusenberg Museum). There are so many different and diverse vehicles here (including one of a kind vehicles, memorabilia) - it was a bit overwhelming. Check out the pictures - and have enough time in your trip to visit both museums... well worth the visit!

This museum is tangent to the Auburn-Cord-Dusenburg museum. Where the ACD museum resides in the original showroom, NATMUS resides in what is left of the Auburn-Cord-Dusenburg assembly buildings. Unlike the ACD, which smells like a new car showroom, the NATMUS smells of old cars and oil....don't get me wrong, I don't think this is necessarily bad. I loved that these... More
