“In the shadow of the ACD museum”
Reviewed September 24, 2013

Easily overlooked, this collection is definitely worth one's time while also visiting the ACD collection. Many of the cars are drivers rather than prize-winning showpieces, but they still display important aspects of automotive history, as does the extensive collection of auto miniatures. With NATMUS open only until five, we took a late-afternoon break to visit here, then returned to ACD and stayed until closing.

“Great Times !!!!!!”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

It was really cool seeing all the cars and trucks there to see what and how they look and were built back then. Definately a stop you have to make when in Auburn Indiana.

“Don't pass up this place..”
Reviewed July 1, 2013 via mobile

I expected this to be a lot of trucks and not as good as the Cord Duesenberg Museum out front. Wow, was I wrong. This building retains all of its character from the factory. It's at least twice as big as the Cord Duesenberg Museum. There are lots of cars, trucks and motorcycles. Lots of gas pumps and other garage, service station and dealership items.

“HUGE museum in a historic building”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

The fact that this museum occupies the former Cord assembly building is a big plus to the auto viewing experience. There are cars & trucks of all types including the original AMP (Henry J prototype). Add a large collection of automotive toys and you get to spend hours. Highly recommended to see!

“Next door to the ACD Museum”
Reviewed June 2, 2013

When you visit the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Museum, be sure to visit NATMUS at the same time. It is right next door. It features an interesting collection of old cars and trucks, particularly the International truck brand. A visit will take you about 2 hours, whereas you might want to spend 4 hours at the ACD Museum.
