Excellent museum, full of history, artifacts and many great transportation vehicles, reasonable fee to walk through multiple museums/homes all connected and/or nearby. So glad we took the time to visit the Studebaker National Museum!

Let me start by saying that I know nothing about cars. However, my son's & Husband are HUGE car buffs. So, on our recent visit to South Bend, IN. It was a no brainer that we must visit the Studebaker Museum. Definitely worth a visit. With memorabilia on 3 different floors, Even I enjoyed myself!

A wonderful surprise in South Bend! Three floors of Studebaker history. Showed their history with Packard, Avanti, the military. Interesting stuff - great photo ops - definitely worth a visit. Could spend 2-3 hours there.

If you love cars the museum is a wealth of knowledge for a brand theat has not been seen for awhile. It take 3-4 hour to walk though the museum and is worth your time.

We live in area and have taken friends and family there on 3 occasions. It is so well done. Even if you are not a car enthusiast, the history is so interesting. Be sure and take a tour of the Oliver Manion right behind the museum. Well worth the time.

This museum is really well done and organized with a special exhibit attributed to the 16th President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln. It tells of his history during before the civil war leading up to his assassination. This is a nice bonus but we're here to talk about Studebaker which started in the mid 19th century as a horse...

This museum does a good job of presenting the history of the coach and auto industry in South Bend. You'll see coaches used by the likes of Ulysses Grant and Abraham Lincoln and a huge selection of cars ranging from early electric vehicles to the ill-fated Studebaker Avanti. You can also take a tour of the beautifully preserved Oliver mansion... More

I loved this Museum! A wonderful display of the progression of the Studebaker. You start the tour with the days of the wagons and slowly move into the automobiles and motorcycles. Bring your family and friends and stroll down memory lane! This place is great for all ages.
