Ranging from 1909 to 1956 the collection houses some of the finest examples of the autos produced by the Hudson Automobile Company. Both pristine restorations and pristinely preserved examples walk you through time while you reminisce about America's love affair with the automobile. « less

These cars are beautiful! We happened to see them adorned with quilts as we were there for the quilt show. They are worth the visit even without quilts!

We had been here before but it is so interesting. At this time the Shipshewana Quilt Festival was in progress and quilts were draped over the cars. This is a large collection of cars and very well displayed.

My husband and our bus driver visited here as it was next door to the hotel. Neither came back with rave revues, but the price was good.

When I used to think of the Hudson automobile, I thought of my brother’s first 1939 used Hudson with no grille and the Hornets of the 1950s. I had no idea Hudson built such beautiful cars in the 1930s. Walking through the stunning new Hostetler’s Hudson Museum, I was impressed with a beautifully restored automobile from just about every model... More

What a beautiful collection of cars! The cars on display run from the 1900's into the 1950's with many rare examples. Most are restored to show quality and a few have been preserved in a slightly weathered state. All have great information and the history of where they came from, which is very interesting. the overall size of the museum... More

This is a small museum with Hudson automobiles. My husband is an old car enthusiast and the Hudson isn't seen very often. One of the volunteers was very helpful with information about many of the vehicles. It gave my husband something other than the many shops to enjoy!
