This is a must see place for anyone who likes automotive history. I really liked the Auburn, Cords and Duesenburgs.

Interesting mix of vehicles and wagons on display, from old wagons used in the 19th century to concept cars. Also interesting is all of the cars that have been used in TV shows that were on display, like cars from Night Rider and Dukes of Hazzard, just to give an example. Also a few race cars and motorcycles on display.... More

Visited with grandson's. They were amazed at the collections of "scale" vehicles. We enjoyed all the trucks on display -- which you don't often see. In all it was a very enjoyable afternoon.

Easily overlooked, this collection is definitely worth one's time while also visiting the ACD collection. Many of the cars are drivers rather than prize-winning showpieces, but they still display important aspects of automotive history, as does the extensive collection of auto miniatures. With NATMUS open only until five, we took a late-afternoon break to visit here, then returned to ACD... More

It was really cool seeing all the cars and trucks there to see what and how they look and were built back then. Definately a stop you have to make when in Auburn Indiana.

I expected this to be a lot of trucks and not as good as the Cord Duesenberg Museum out front. Wow, was I wrong. This building retains all of its character from the factory. It's at least twice as big as the Cord Duesenberg Museum. There are lots of cars, trucks and motorcycles. Lots of gas pumps and other garage,... More

The fact that this museum occupies the former Cord assembly building is a big plus to the auto viewing experience. There are cars & trucks of all types including the original AMP (Henry J prototype). Add a large collection of automotive toys and you get to spend hours. Highly recommended to see!

When you visit the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Museum, be sure to visit NATMUS at the same time. It is right next door. It features an interesting collection of old cars and trucks, particularly the International truck brand. A visit will take you about 2 hours, whereas you might want to spend 4 hours at the ACD Museum.

A collection of vintage and not so vintage tricks. Some restores, some original, a few farm fresh. Include this with a visit to the Cord, Auburn Duesenberg museum which is on the same site.

It was fun to visit the ACD Museum in front of the the NATMUS Museum, but this one is more the average persons car. Very fun!
