This home was beautiful and our tour guide very knowlegable. Beautiful wood work, marble and furnishings. Interesting family history also.

Beautiful home with very speedy tour. I toured the Oliver home this last Friday and was more than impressed with the architectural design in the home. There was certainly no spared expense in building their home. The staff were nice enough. My particular tour guide was quite young (did not know the answers to questions but did look on the “cheat sheets”) but was pleasant all the same. Certainly a must see if in town!

I am definitely prejudiced as a Studebaker relative, but having also walked the exhibits of many museums, the History Museum in South Bend, Indiana, of which the Studebaker Museum is a large part, is worth your time. The admission fee is good for two days, which provides visitors with a chance to see all the exhibits. We started by viewing a film, met up with our guide, and actually had a private tour of the Oliver Mansion, left very much intact with beautiful rooms, antiques galore, and fun facts around each corner--such a gem. After lunch down the street at Tippecanoe mansion of Clem Studebaker, we returned to the Museum, spending the afternoon viewing the Studebaker section of the Museum. Two nice gift stores with snacks, restrooms, and local exhibits round out this must-see stop in South Bend.

Unfortunately, I did not allow enough time to absorb all of the greatness this museum had to offer! Some of it is local affair, but some exhibits are astounding. Take your time and enjoy.
