Thanks for visiting. Just so you know, the Tiffany exhibit and the Mansion are a part of The History Museum, not the Studebaker National Museum.

For some unique history of south bend and studebaker this is the place to go. Not a bad price to see some local history. My dad loves all the old cars. It's interesting to see all that studebaker was back in the day.
