“Great place for car history!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

We took a group of school kids here and we loved it! There was a lot of information about the history of Studebaker as well as several cars to feast your eyes upon.

“An underrated car museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

This was our second visit to the Studebaker museum and it had been all re-done with huge improvements and additions. Sure, it's about Studebaker but it's also about the history of road travel. One great feature had carriages built by the Studebaker family that were used by Presidents Lincoln, Grant and McKinley. Those marvelous Raymond Loewy (sp?) designs that were ahead of their time, i.e., the late '40 and early '50 Hawks, Commanders and Champions are always a delight to the eye. If you like car museums, I highly recommend this one.

“Cool museum.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012 via mobile

Went with my family On Sunday after the nd game. Cool museum. Much bigger than it looks on the outside. Has a lot of interesting cars to look at. Didn't know anything about Studebakers before I went and learned a bit. My fil really loved it. My wife also thought it was interesting. Plan to spend about 2 hours if you're just going to the Studebakers side. There is also a south bend museum in the same building, but we did not stop in.

“Fun!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012

This museum is very fun if you're "into" cars. My hubby loves classic cars and the 3 floors of the museum were fun and filled with amazingly beautiful classic cars. There is a small area for kids to play too.
