Some great stuff mixed in.

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... read more

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

Well organized collection of cars and trucks. So much to see but due to the amount of exhibits a bit crowded. They could use a bit more space which they obviously don't have. But it is impressive and very well maintained. Thanks to the people working there.

There are some interesting cars , but the display is not cohesive and dome cars are very important and in great condition and others not so much. It is worth a visit if you are already there visiting the ACD Museum.

This museum was sort of an afterthought. It's right next door to the ACD Museum, so I figured I'd give it a go since I was there. I was very surprised by the quality and assortment of cars. They had a little of everything. Lots of Hemi Mopars, the flagship models of all of the classics and even a few... More

The museum has so much to see. Everywhere you look there is a surprise from yesteryear. The toy models were fascinating. Especially the rubber ones. Lots of automobile history in one building. Display if IH vehicles was great. Gas pumps were great.
