Of course, there is nothing like the Studebaker. During my visit, they even had a Harley display and Abraham Lincoln's carriage. Excellent museum, and a must see for anyone visiting South Bend, Indiana. I don't remember the exact date of the visit, although TripAdvisor requires you to choose one, so I guestimated.

Not just studebaker cars includes company history, other vehicles, and history of businesses from the northern Indiana area. A good afternoon variety excursion

Even if you aren't a car lover, this is a MUST SEE, and at a very reasonable price. Take your time and see both history and auto history.

What an extensive collection of beautifully restored Studebakers, cars especially, but wagons included. Information signs easy to read, informative and not overwhelming in historical facts. Compact straightfoward layout in this museum building. Nice extra treat of historical Presidential carriages including the one that delivered the unfortunate Mr Lincoln to the Ford Theater. One also gets a good sense of this... More

Studebaker cars are the stars here but the wagons and carriages make it so much more impressive. There is amazing history here. It is a very unique collection.

I held my husband's surprise birthday party here. It was the first time any of us had been there and the place was unbelievable! The cars were great, of course, but there was so much more to take in. Must see!

We visited this with family. We live relatively close, but, as do many people, we rarely visit local attractions. Having family in town, we went to lunch in South bend and decided to visit this museum. It was something that everyone enjoyed. In addition to the cars on display, there were historical items throughout the displays that made the visit... More

I'm not much of a car enthusiast, but really enjoyed my visit to this museum. Displays were informative and attractively arranged. Staff were friendly. Enthusiasts would spend 2+ hours here; I spent about 60 minutes. Well worth the small admission charge.
